[Q] Does each investor have to create 10 full-time jobs?


[Q] If 2 investors (me and my friend) invest 1 million dollars each to set up a new restaurant, do we have to create 20 employees (10 employees each) or can we create 10 employees only?

The answer depends on whether all investors in a new commercial enterprise are EB-5 investors. If only you are investing and applying for an EB-5 case, whereas others are investing and not pursuing EB-5 cases, then all jobs created from the new business project can be allocated to you, who are pursuing an EB-5 case.

As an example, if the new business will create 25 full-time jobs from the investment from you and your U.S. citizen or green card holder partners, then you can get credit for all 25 jobs.
