For those with $500,000 to spare. The EB-5 program was created in 1990 to stimulate the U.S. economy through capital investment and job creation. Foreigners can qualify for permanent U.S. residency — a green card — if they invest at least $1 million in a new business venture that creates at least 10 jobs. The threshold drops to $500,000 for investments in high-unemployment or rural areas.
