There are endless potential answers to this question. Although there is no specific type of business that you must conduct under an EB-5 visa, you surly want to be sure that it’s something sustainable. After all, to even quality for the EB-5 visa you must meet the following requirements:

  • Make at least a $1 million dollar investment in your business (either via loans or personal assets).
  • Create at least 10 full-time positions for US employees.

Of course, in order to achieve this, you’ll want to be sure that your business can actually be able to thrive. This will come down to many factors such as:

  • Your area of expertise
  • The location of your company
  • The need for your company

If you’re still in the earliest planning stages about what type of business you should focus on, you should take the time to evaluate your strengths and do some market research for how that type of business may perform in the US.
