The EB-5 program requires that the Investor make a capital investment of either $500,000 or $1 million, depending on whether or not the investment is in a targeted high unemployment area or rural area. Investors must invest the proper amount of capital in a business called a new commercial enterprise, which will create at least 10 full time jobs for US workers, within 2 years of receiving conditional permanent residency.
The Direct Investment Program requires the new commercial enterprise to create or preserve only direct jobs that provide employment opportunities for US workers by the commercial enterprise in which the capital has been directly invested.
Typically, Direct Investors invest in smaller projects with fewer total investors involved. Many Direct Investors are the sole investor in a particular project which gives them better control and better returns.
