Most EB-5 Investors Choose the $500,000 Option in Targeted Employment Areas 大多数EB-5投资者选择在目标就业区域投资50万美元

Targeted Employment Areas attract the most EB-5 investors

U.S. Government Accountability Office recent study shows the majority of EB-5 investors choose the half a million dollars options rather than investing the $1 million. EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program requires investing $1 million in a new business that will result in the creation of at least 10 permanent full-time jobs or $500,000 if the investment is made in a targeted employment area (TEA) — an area that is rural or has an unemployment rate at least 150 percent of the national average. Approximately 10,000 EB-5 visas per year are made available to immigrant investors.

The recent GAO report finds that almost all (99 percent) of the 6,652 EB-5 petitioners in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015 elected to invest $500,000 in a TEA. The GAO used a simple random sample of 200 to make the determination.

美国政府责任办公室最近的研究显示,大多数EB-5投资者选择了50万美元的选项,而不是投资100万美元。 EB-5移民投资计划要求投资100万美元在一个新的业务,将导致创建至少10个永久全职工作或50万美元,如果投资是在目标就业区(TEA) – 农村 或失业率至少为全国平均水平的150%。 美国每年向移民投资者提供大约10,000张EB-5签证。

最近的GAO报告发现,在2015财年第四季度的6,652个EB-5申请者中,几乎所有(99%)选择投资50万美元的TEA。 GAO使用200的简单随机样本进行测定。
