Targeted Employment Areas for EB-5 Investors

Targeted employment areas are regions of the United States in which the threshold for investment for an investor to be eligible for the EB-5 visa is $500,000, as opposed to the usual $1 million. There are two kinds of TEAs: high unemployment areas and rural areas. These areas are defined as non-metropolitan areas, or locations with a very high unemployment. If you are a foreign investor, you may be wondering how you can qualify for EB-5 classification as it is certainly a benefit you will want to take advantage of.

Here are a few key ways to obtain approval for TEA designation:

  • Contacting the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistic’s Local Area Unemployment Statistics office, and planning to obtain published technical bulletins
  • Getting a letter from state government to provide rural or high unemployment area evidence
  • Providing other statistical documentation
