Packaging Co. Available for acquisition for EB-5 Visa

An immigrant may obtain an EB-5 Investor Visa by investing at least $500,000 in a commercial enterprise in a designated high-unemployment area or by investing at least $1 million in a commercial enterprise that is not in such an area.  The investment must lead to the creation of at least 10 new American jobs to qualify the investor for the visa.  The investor must prove that the money was legally earned and must still have the money invested after two years.  In addition to investing in individual businesses, some investors chose to invest in regional centers which pool and manage the money and undertake the work of creating the requisite number of jobs.
