The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa Program offered by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency offers green cards to foreign investors and their families who invest a minimum of $1 million (or $500,000 in targeted employment areas) in businesses that create at least ten full-time permanent jobs for U.S. workers. This foreign direct investment program spurs economic development and growth and promotes job creation in the United States. Forbes magazine reported that “a new report from the Partnership for a New American Economy found more than 40 percent of Fortune 500 companies were founded by immigrants or their children.” The report also stated that “the revenue generated by Fortune 500 companies founded by immigrants or children of immigrants is greater than the GDP of every country in the world outside the U.S., except China and Japan…1.7 trillion dollars.” You can read more on the reports findings by clicking here.
The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa Program allows the foreign investor to invest in his or her own commercial enterprise or in a commercial enterprise owned by other parties. The investor may also choose to invest in a pre-approved “regional center”. Regional centers are government-approved entities in designated geographical areas for which USCIS has determined that investments will create the necessary 10 jobs per investor, whether directly or indirectly. Virtually all of the regional centers contain geographical areas where $500,000 is the required amount of investment. The Milwaukee Region has been designated a Regional Center for the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa Program by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The Milwaukee Regional Center is administered by the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce Regional Center, LLC, Inc. To learn more about Milwaukee’s Regional Center click here.
