Residents of foreign countries seeking to invest in a business operation in the United States may seek an EB-5 investor visa if they can demonstrate that the business will hire at least 10 full-time employees who are legal residents of the United States. Currently, the minimum investment required by the USCIS for urban areas is $1 million. For rural areas, including communities with less than 200,000 population, the required amount is reduced to $500,000.
