What is the minimum investment for EB-5?

The minimum investment required for EB-5 varies depending on where the EB-5 project is located.

If the project is located in a Targeted Employment Area (TEA), the capital required is $500,000. For projects in non-TEAs, the capital required is $1 million.

In addition to the minimum investment amount, the EB-5 investor should be prepared for various costs and fees in support of their EB-5 application.

(In November 2019, DHS published a rule that raised the amounts to $900,000 and $1.8 million. Behring Regional Center led the industry in successfully vacating these regulations in federal court. Learn more about Behring’s legal victory.)
