The EB-5 visa program is one of the most flexible paths to a green card available. You’re no longer required to manage the business’ day-to-day operations, you can invest in an existing business or a new business, and you’re not required to live in the region where the investment is made.
So if you invest in one of our Houston EB5 projects and want to live elsewhere, you can!
Additionally, funds may come from any legal foreign or US source; including gifts, loans, and divorce settlements. Loan investment funds qualify if the assets are secured with a collateral.

A Note on Regional Centers:
In 1992, the U.S. Congress created the Regional Center Pilot Program to promote immigration and investment through the EB-5 program and also encourage foreign investment in the United States. The Regional Center Pilot Program allows for a portion of allowable annual EB-5 Visas to be set aside for foreigners who apply through a USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) approved Regional Center such as Houston EB5.
A Regional Center is a private commercial enterprise, corporation, or regional governmental agency with a targeted investment program within a defined geographic region. In many ways, the Regional Center program mirrors other successful, long-standing investment-employment based programs in the UK, Canada, Australia, and other countries.
An investor seeking an EB-5 immigrant visa through a designated regional center must make a qualifying investment of $1.8 million and show that at least 10 jobs were directly or indirectly created through that investment.
However, certain rural and high unemployment areas (TEAs – Targeted Employment Areas) qualify for a reduced capital investment of $900,000. A targeted employment area is an area that has experienced an average unemployment rate of at least 150% of the national average unemployment rate. TEAs may now include cities and towns with a population of 20,000 or more outside of metropolitan areas.
Houston EB5 is a USCIS-designed regional center that focuses primarily on investment opportunities for qualified projects located within targeted employment areas.
Using USCIS-approved job creation methodology, Houston EB5 develops and maintains detailed economic reports to measure and verify direct and indirect job creation for qualified EB-5 projects.
