U.S. EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program

Orissa International is the Authorized Trade Representative in South East Asia for the US states of Pennsylvania, Virginia, Wisconsin, Iowa, Delaware, and the Council of Great Lakes Governors, whose members include Ohio, Michigan and New York. As a complementary service, we also offer the EB-5 program to foreign investors that want to obtain US permanent residency, and US citizenship, for their families.


Administered by the United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS), the program is now one of the most popular options for foreign nationals that want to live and work in the US. It is one of the fastest ways to get US permanent residency, and there are no requirements for the foreign national to be sponsored by a company or relative. The investment amount is also significantly less compared to immigrant investor programs of other developed countries.

Key Requirements

  • Invest US$ 500,000 in a project within an approved

    Regional Center in a Targeted Employment Area

  • Prove that the source of your funds is legal

  • Maintain the investment for a period of 5-6 years

  • Each unit of investment must create at least ten new, direct or indirect jobs for US workers
