You may set up a business similar to yours in the United States. The lower threshold of $500,000 for direct investment is allowed provided that the business is within a TEA. Also, the business must create 10 direct full-time jobs within the TEA geographical area of your business. The procedure will take approximately 12-18 months after the filing of the I-526 petition. You may also have alternative options outside of EB-5 and should consult with an immigration attorney to determine the best visa for you.
