[Q] I set up a business and created 9 new, full-time positions. Can I hire my spouse as the 10th employee?


No, under the EB-5 law, investor and family members cannot be included in the 10 full-time jobs to be created. Also, only CPR, LPR or USC workers qualify, meaning someone who is on F-1 visa cannot be included in the 10 new positions.
