[Q] Does an alien EB-5 investor need to own 100% or a majority interest in the new business for direct EB-5 case?


No, any percentage ownership will do, as long as other requirements are met. This is one aspect in which EB-5 case is better than an E-2 case. This means an EB-5 investor in a direct EB-5 case may have U.S. partners.
