Can I immigrate to the United States on an EB-5 visa if my father provides the investment funds?

My father invests in projects abroad and wants to invest in a U.S. health care company. He wants to invest up to 1 million U.S. dollars. I am going to be overseeing this company in the U.S.A. My father is not interested in running the business but I am. Could I get an EB-5 green card to do so?

    In this scenario, your father would need to gift you the funds to effectuate the EB-5 investment. If you are over the age of 21, you cannot get a green card through your father''s EB-5 investment.

    You father can gift you the investment funds and then you can make the investment in your own right through the EB-5 program.

    Yes. Your father can gift the money to you and you will be the investor of the US business and apply for EB-5 visa. You may also want to check if you can apply for L-1 visa and green card based on EB-1C category.

    Yes, but please remember that EB-5 is a "job-creation program", not an investment program.
