EB-5 Investment: Purchasing an Existing Business

The EB-5 Reform and Integrity Act of 2022 brought many changes to the EB-5 program. For the latest information, please click here.

For prospective EB-5 investors, one way to establish a new commercial enterprise is to purchase an existing business and restructure it to create a commercial venture. However, the lack of elaborate and well-defined criteria may make it difficult for investors to get approved for an EB-5 visa after purchasing an existing business.

Below is an infographic describing general EB-5 investment requirements and, specifically, what it requires to purchase an existing business.
