Free EB-5 Evaluation

Can starting or investing in a residential construction company qualify a foreign national for an EB-5 Visa?

Investing in a residential construction company may satisfy the requirements of the EB-5 Program as long as (i) the company meets the definition of a new commercial enterprise (NCE), (ii) the investment meets the minimum threshold of $500,000 (if the NCE is in a TEA) or $1,000,000, and (iii) the investment results in the creation of 10 full-time, permanent jobs for U.S. workers. One potential issue for a construction company in particular is that the new job positions must be permanent, not temporary or contract labor.
