EB-5 stands for employment-based fifth preference visa.
The EB-5 Program was created in 1990 by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services ("USCIS") with the goals of creating jobs for U.S. workers and helping to foster the U.S. economy through foreign investment.The EB-5 program gives each participating foreign investor the opportunity to obtain a Green Card by investing in a new commercial enterprise in the United States which creates 10 jobs.

What is a Regional Center?
An EB-5 Regional Center is a service agent for investors and companies looking to complete a project under the EB-5 Program. A Regional Center is designated by USCIS and can be any economic entity that is involved with the promotion of increased domestic capital, job creation, improved regional productivity, and increased economic growth.
Regional Centers sponsor capital investment projects for EB-5 investors and provide an interface between the USCIS, the Project, and the Investor. Actual investments are in specific projects.
Live In America owns and operates 22 USCIS designated regional centers, covering all or parts of 37 states, territories and the District of Columbia, and sponsors job creating Immigration Investment Projects by working with leading developers.
