Investment Process

EB5 Direct Investments provides EB-5 visa applicants with several investment opportunities that meet their specific timeframe and risk profile. Once the investment has been made, we work closely with the investor’s immigration attorneys to fulfill the reporting requirements of the investment’s job creation and complete the EB-5 visa process.

The Process

  • Contact Us
  • Confirm status as an accredited investor
    To be considered an accredited investor by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, an individual must have either:
    • Net worth of at least $1 million, or
    • Income of at least $200,000 in each of the two most recent years or joint income with a spouse exceeding $300,000 for those years and a reasonable expectation of the same income level in the current year
  • Complete Form I-526, including evidence verifying that the investment projects will create the required number of jobs
  • Review offering memorandums of available investments and select the investment opportunity that best fits the investor’s time frame, risk tolerance, and available capital
  • Sign engagement letter with EB5 Direct Investments
    Submission of the processing fee will secure the investor’s opportunity to participate in the selected investment
  • Submit investment capital = $1 million (or $500,000 for investments within a Targeted Employment Area)
    The funds will be placed in an escrow account with a leading U.S. banking institution until the transaction is completed
  • Complete Form I-829, including evidence verifying that the investment has created the required number of jobs during the first two years of the project
  • Provide a) authorization to liquidate the investment at completion of five-year term, or b) consent to extend the investment if the opportunity is available

Throughout the course of the investment, investors will receive quarterly reports detailing the financial performance and job-creation status of the investment, as well as quarterly distribution payments.
