Free EB-5 Project Evaluation How much will it cost a foreign national to immigrate through the EB-5 Program?

The EB-5 Program requires an investment of $1,000,000 unless the project receiving the investment is located within a targeted employment area (TEA), in which case the minimum investment amount is $500,000. If investing through a regional center, an administrative fee of about $50,000 can be expected. In addition to the investment capital and regional center fee, the I-526 Petition carries a $1,500 USCIS filing fee; consular processing costs $345 per applicant while adjusting status through Form I-485 costs $1,070 per applicant; the I-829 Petition carries a single USCIS filing fee of $3,750 and an $85 biometric services fee per applicant. Costs for legal representation will vary based on whether the applicant hires only an immigration attorney or securities, business, and/or tax counsel as well. As a result, legal fees may range from $15,000 to $50,000. A more specific estimate of all costs involved in obtaining this immigrant visa requires consultation with an immigrant attorney.
