Supporting documents

An investor applicant will need to provide documents as evidence of their investment venture. We’ve
outlined what evidence is required to be shown for each type of investment.

Investing in a new commercial enterprise:

  • Evidence that you established a new “for profit” enterprise.
  • Documentation that the business is located in a TEA, if applicable.
  • Evidence that you have, or are, investing the amount of capital required.
  • Clearly show that all investment funds were obtained legally.
  • Provide foreign business registration records.
  • Produce personal and business tax filed anywhere in the previous five years.
  • Show certified copies of any pending or prior civil or criminal actions involving financial judgments against you within the last 15 years.
  • Provide a detailed business plan showing that the qualifying enterprise will create at least 10 full-time jobs.

Investing in a troubled business:

  • Produce the same evidence required for a new commercial enterprise except for the creation of 10 full-time jobs.
  • If investing through a regional center, indirect jobs qualify if they are shown to have been created as a result of capital invested in a commercial enterprise affiliated with the regional center.
  • Maintain existing jobs at nothing less than that of the pre-investment level for at least two years.
  • Document that the business has been in existence at least two years, showing a net loss during the 12- or 24-month period prior to the priority date on the immigrant investor’s Form I-526.
  • Show the loss is at least 20 percent of the troubled business’ net worth prior to the loss.

Investing in a Regional Center Program:

An investor’s spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21 may be admitted to the U.S. with them for a two-year conditional period. If the investor’s I-829 petition to remove Green Card conditions is approved, then they also will be removed from the cards for the spouse and children. As a lawful permanent resident and Green Card holder, an investor’s spouse and children will be authorized to work or attend school in the U.S.
