Hello Joseph,

Wealthy investors can immigrate to the U.S. through the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program. Through this program investors can obtain a green card if they invest in a commercial enterprise in the United States, and plan to create or preserve 10 permanent full-tine jobs in the U.S.

The full details of this program are somewhat complicated but they are spelled out at in detail: About the EB-5 Visa.

But the basic investment qualifications are that the investor invest $1 million dollars in a business, or in certain rural areas or areas where there is high unemployment $500,000 in the business.

As mentioned 10 permanent full time jobs must be created, and these jobs must be created within 2 years.

For all the details, please go to About the EB-5 Visa.

I hope this helps.
