EB-5 Investment Opportunities for Las Vegas, Nevada EB-5 Investors

EB-5 investors from Las Vegas, Nevada, seeking an EB-5 investment should consider the benefits of investing in an EB5AN EB-5 visa project.

EB5AN has a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)-approved Nevada EB-5 regional center with coverage of Las Vegas. All the city’s neighborhoods, from the Arts District to Beverly Green, are included in its area of coverage.

The EB5AN Las Vegas, Nevada Regional Center

Potential EB-5 investors may select EB5 investments located anywhere in the United States. Those living in Las Vegas, however, may simply want to invest in projects located within the state, and EB5AN already has a USCIS-approved regional center covering Las Vegas.

The EB5AN’s State of Nevada EB-5 regional center covers Clark County. This coverage includes both the city of Las Vegas and its neighbors: Boulder City, Bunkerville, and Summerlin South. Through our Nevada EB-5 regional center, foreign investors pursuing U.S. permanent residency can invest in a USCIS-approved regional center that covers EB-5 projects in Las Vegas.

Why Do Most EB-5 Investors Use Regional Centers?

EB-5 regional centers streamline the EB-5 investment process for potential EB-5 applicants and make it easier to demonstrate required job creation. Specifically, only regional centers may use the indirect method of calculating jobs through an approved economic methodology. This means that EB-5 investors must show only that their invested funds were spent according to the business plan rather than documenting that full time (W-2) employees were hired and remained employed for at least two full years.

EB5AN maintains multiple USCIS-approved regional centers with broad geographic coverage, enabling it to immediately sponsor strong EB-5 projects in cities across the United States, including Las Vegas, Nevada.

  • Creating or preserving at least 10 full-time jobs for qualifying U.S. workers that last a minimum of two years.

  • Maintaining the at-risk status of the investment and using investment funds that have been lawfully sourced.

How to Evaluate EB-5 Investment Projects

EB-5 investors based in Las Vegas and the surrounding areas in Nevada should evaluate both financial and immigration risk when selecting an EB-5 investment project.

One of the requirements of a successful EB-5 visa investment is that the investment capital must be at risk for the duration of the investment. This is to ensure investors actually invest their capital and are not simply “buying” a U.S. green card.

“At risk” does not mean that EB-5 investors are required to invest in “risky” projects. Quite the contrary—EB-5 investors are strongly recommended to conduct thorough due diligence to minimize their exposure to financial and immigration risk.

EB5AN, in collaboration with Klasko Immigration Law Partners, has developed an EB-5 Project Risk Assessment Tool for EB-5 investors. This highly functional, easy-to-use tool guides investors through the initial diligence of EB-5 projects from both financial and immigration risk perspectives.
