The EB-5 visa Immigrant Investor Program was enacted by Congress in 1990 with the passing of the Immigration and National Act. It is administered through the United States Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS), an agency of the Department of Homeland Security, in an effort to stimulate the US economy through job creation and capital investments by foreign investors.  Since 1992, Certain EB-5 visas have been set aside for investors in USCIS designated Regional Centers based on proposals for promoting economic growth. This visa provides a method of obtaining a Green Card for foreign aliens who invest money in the United States.
