Can green card holders contribute to PACs?

Yes.

Under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), an immigrant may make a contribution if s/he has a “green card” indicating lawful admittance for permanent residence in the U.S. The personal limits to donate are the same for green card holders as it is for citizens – $2,700 for the primaries, and another $2,700 for the general election. However, a person with a green card cannot vote.

More related to my industry, the U.S. government gives up to 10,000 visas each year to international entrepreneurs who invest a certain amount in a new U.S. business or an existing U.S. business that meets certain criteria. This EB-5 visa allows the holder to apply for a green card as soon as he or she is approved for the program. Spouses and immediate family are also eligible. Check out the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website for more info on this type of visa!
