Investor Visa Attorneys in New Bern

Helping Entrepreneurs Invest in America

The EB-5 is an immigrant visa granted to foreign investors who create U.S. jobs. To qualify, you must invest $1 million, or $500,000 if you are investing in a commercial enterprise in an area with high unemployment (often a rural area). Your investment must create at least 10 full-time jobs for U.S. citizens.

At The E.A. Wood Law Firm, we are happy to help smart and business-savvy entrepreneurs get their start in the U.S. The EB-5 visa is a great way to both benefit a local economy and help foreign entrepreneurs achieve their American dream. If you are seeking legal representation as you pursue this new business endeavor, choose The E.A. Wood Law Firm. Our visa attorneys in New Bern can answer your questions, address your concerns, and ensure that your application is strong.

Contact us online or call (800) 611-0821 to learn more about the EB-5 or to get started on a petition.

Immigrant Investor Visa Categories

There are four different categories in which an immigrant investor visa can fall. The category of your visa will depend on the circumstances of your petition and the details of your investment.

The four categories for immigrant investor visas are:

  • C5: For employment creation outside a targeted area
  • T5: For job creation in a targeted (high unemployment) area
  • R5: Investor Pilot Program not in a targeted area
  • I5: Investor Pilot Program in a targeted area

Family Members of Investors

If your petition for an investor visa is approved, you may bring your spouse and any unmarried children under the age of 21 with you. Keep in mind that each family member will need to complete the necessary forms, pay the required fee, and undergo a medical examination. This benefit is extended to same-sex couples as well.
