How can I obtain an immigrant investor visa?

First, you must prove you are an immigrant investor who is willing to invest either $500,000 in a high-unemployment or rural area, or that you are ready to invest $1 million in a qualifying commercial enterprise in the United States, and that as a result, you plan on having a positive effect on the United States economy via job creation and capital investment. In immigrant investor visa is known as the Form I-526, Immigrant Petition by Alien Entrepreneur, and you will have to file the Form with USCIS. Many immigrant investors are also happy to learn that their spouses, as well as their unmarried children who are under the age of 21, are also frequently eligible to apply for these visas.
What documents will I need to obtain an immigrant investor visa?
Before you can receive your visa, you will have to submit various forms and documents to USCIS to prove your eligibility. These documents are as follows:
- Petitioner documents
- Two photographs for identification
- Medical examination forms
- Marriage certificates
- Birth certificates
- Your passport, as well as your family member’s passports
- Form DS-260, Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration Application
