About EB5 Capital
EB5 Capital, located in Bethesda, Md., was designated as an EB-5 Regional Center by USCIS in April 2008. EB5 Capital aids foreign investors in attaining permanent residency in the United States through the EB-5 program. The regional center works with foreign investors to invest in businesses that will create jobs in the United States. EB5 Capital is designated to authorize EB-5 investments in a variety of fields, including hospitality (hotels, restaurants and entertainment), mixed-use real estate construction (hotel, retail, office and residential), assisted living and construction. The regional center has jurisdiction over the District of Columbia; Maryland counties of Montgomery, Prince Georges, Howard, Baltimore, Harford and Anne Arundel, and the city of Baltimore; Virginia counties of Arlington and Fairfax, and the city of Alexandria.
EB5 Capital’s role is to partner with investors and assist them in finding promising opportunities that would fulfill both their needs and the mission of the EB-5 program. Although it is located in Maryland, the regional center is able to source opportunities nationwide and has successfully helped families from more than 30 countries around the world. EB5 Capital also has a proven track record and has a 100 percent approval rate for all past I-526 and I-829 petitions.

The regional center partners with prominent real estate companies and skilled immigration attorneys to provide clients with the best opportunity for success. EB5 Capital raised over $20 million dollars to successfully complete construction of the Sugarbush Ski Resort.
