The EB-5 investor visa program has a minimum investment requirement of US$ 800,000 if the investment is made in a Targeted Employment Area (TEA) and US$ 1.05 million for a standard investment (outside TEA). Family members of investors are also eligible to apply for and obtain ‘Green Cards.’ After holding permanent residency for five years, it becomes possible to apply for citizenship.
