Obtaining a visa is often difficult, which is why your Phoenix immigration lawyer may recommend pursuing an investment visa. An investment visa, also known as an EB-5 visa, provides a way for natives of other countries to live in the U.S. legally if they invest at least $500,000 in an American business. In addition, the business must create at least 10 jobs in the country. Some foreign investors have pooled their resources to start businesses together. If you choose to do this, bear in mind that each individual investor must still invest at least $500,000 each.
