The EB-5 Visa Around the World

The EB-5 visa immigrant investor program offers investors and their families from around the world a pathway to U.S. permanent residency (green card) since its establishment in 1990.

With the introduction of the EB-5 visa availability approach to the adjudication of I-526 petitions—which was implemented in April 2020—the origin countries of EB-5 petitioners gained more significance than ever before. Instead of the previous first-in-first-out approach to processing EB-5 visas, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services now prioritizes petitions filed from countries for which visas are available either immediately or in the near future.

This section offers prospective EB-5 investors a closer look at the statistics, country-specific benefits and challenges in the global EB-5 markets, the retrogression situation, and source of funds information.
