Commercial enterprises recognized by USCIS
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requires EB-5 visa applicants to make contributions to the U.S. economy by making a substantial investment. The investments are then used in sustaining any of the following “commercial enterprises”:
- Single proprietor type of business
- General or limited type of business
- Joint Venture
- Holding company
- Public or private business entity or trust
Aside from those mentioned, any lawful activity that generates an income can be considered as a commercial enterprise. Foreign nationals who are considering living in the U.S. together with their family should understand that they will need to invest $1 million in general, or $500,000 if they plan to invest in certain areas in the U.S. with a high unemployment rate.
