Investors pursuing a Direct EB-5 have several options.

-You can invest in your own business /commercial enterprise, this can be a startup business or a pre-existing business that you purchase an ownership interest into.

-You can invest into a shared enterprise as a partner.

-Under the Direct EB-5 rules, an investor must comply with at least basic active management requirements.

-The Business enterprise must crate at last 10 U.S jobs.

-The Direct Program is a permanent Program. Unlike the Regional Center Program which can and does expire. The Direct Program is ongoing with no risk of the Program expiring.

-The Visa Bulletin may allow for less delays to those filing under the Direct Program. It has been shown that when the Regional Center Program is on hold, the Direct Program receives sufficient visa allocation to allow for those normally Retrogressed, such as China and Vietnam to become current.
