[Q] Can a foreign EB-5 investor co-invest with a green card holder or a U.S. citizen and be credited for all jobs created?


[Q] A foreign EB-5 investor is in the process of investing $1 million into a new U.S. company, and he has a U.S. citizen partner who is also investing $1 million. If the company creates 10 new jobs, does that mean the foreign EB-5 investor will get credit for creating 5 of those jobs?

Yes, all jobs created by both the foreign EB-5 investor and the U.S. citizen can be allocated to the foreign EB-5 investor. In addition, the foreign EB-5 investor does not have to be a majority investor.
