Crimson EB5 Visa Program

Welcome to Crimson's EB-5 Visa Program

EB-5 Visa Program Overview


  • The Employment-Based (EB) Fifth (5) Preference Visas Program - EB-5 Program - is an immigrant investor program that was established in 1990 by the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) for the purpose of facilitating economic growth and job creation through foreign investment.

  • A foreign national has the opportunity to obtain lawful permanent resident status in the United States by making a qualified investment through a minimum of $500,000 - $1,000,000 in a commercial enterprise.

  • Each unit of EB-5 investment must create at least ten new direct or indirect full-time jobs for U.S. workers for a period of two years. Once the job creation requirement is met, investors may obtain a permanent Green Card for permanent residency. 


  • Permanent residency is also extended to spouses and any unmarried children under 21 years of age.

Frequently Asked Questions


What does EB-5 mean?

EB-5 is the more common term used to refer to a United States Visa program that was established by U.S. Congress. The full title of the program is Employment-Based Immigration Fifth Preference Visas Program.

What is the EB-5 Program?

The EB-5 Program is a win-win program for both the U.S. and foreign nationals. It is an immigrant investor program that was created by the U.S. Congress in 1990. It was established by the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS), which is a Division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The primary purpose of the EB-5 Program is to promote the immigration of people who can help create jobs for U.S. workers through their investment of capital into the U.S. economy. In return and when certain conditions are met, these foreign nationals receive a permanent visa for themselves and their eligible family members.

What qualifies a business or project for EB-5 investment capital?

  • The business or project must be new, restructuring or expanding.

  • The investment must create or preserve at least 10 full-time jobs that are either direct or indirect (if the investment is in a Regional Center) for qualifying U.S. workers.

  • The minimum investment per investor is $1,000,000 USD or $500,000 USD if the investment is located in a Targeted Employment Area (TEA).

  • Investment dollars cannot be borrowed.

  • Note: San Diego, California, where Crimson EB-5 Program participates and expects to invest, is not a Target Employment Area. As such , the minimum investment must be $1,000,000 USD (non-targeted area has significantly less risk on the investment)


When is a conditional visa granted?

A conditional visa is granted once background checks are completed and Form I-485 is approved. This takes place after Form I-526 is adjudicated, which occurs approximately    16 months after the EB-5 investment is made.

When does a foreign national’s status change from ‘conditional’ to ‘unconditional’ Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) of the United States?

Once further conditions are met, which typically takes two years, an immigrant investor‘s status is changed to ‘unconditional’ and they become a Lawful Permanent Resident’ (LPR).

Which of the investor’s family members are eligible for the benefit of permanent residency?

The investor’s spouse and any unmarried children under the age of 21 are eligible. All family members are subject to the same conditional and unconditional resident status process. Once unconditional Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) status is granted, children may remain in the U.S. without their parents to attend college or university.

What is the best resource to learn about the specific U.S. laws and regulations regarding the EB-5 Program? 

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) website at www.uscis.govhas extensive information on the EB-5 program, including how to obtain permanent resident status through investment.
