EB-5 investors from Henderson, Nevada interested in making an EB-5 investment should consider the benefits of investing in an EB5 Affiliate Network (EB5AN) EB-5 visa project.
Henderson is located at the southern rim of the Las Vegas Valley stretching east of Boulder Highway to just east of Interstate 15 about 16 miles from the Las Vegas Strip. Highlights of the area include a level desert, access to the Colorado River along with Black Mountain and the River and McCullough Mountains.
Why Are EB-5 Investors Using Regional Centers?
EB-5 regional centers simplify 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.
EB5 Affiliate Network maintains multiple USCIS-approved regional centers with broad geographic coverage, enabling it to immediately sponsor strong EB-5 projects in towns across the United States including Henderson, Nevada.
The EB5 Affiliate Network State of Nevada Regional Center
Potential EB-5 investors may select EB5 investments located anywhere in the United States. Those residing in Henderson, however, may simply want to invest in projects located in Nevada, and EB5AN already has a USCIS-approved regional center that covers Henderson.
Townsite and Green Valley Ranch are just two of the Henderson neighborhoods covered by the EB5 Affiliate Network’s (EB5AN) State of Nevada Regional Center, which has geographic coverage of all of Henderson. Eligible foreign investors who desire U.S. permanent resident status can select an EB-5 investment under our State of Nevada EB-5 regional center or another EB5AN-owned regional center to obtain permanent residency through the EB-5 investment program.

Primary EB-5 Investment Requirements
The primary EB-5 investment requirements can be summarized as follows:
- Investing a minimum of $900,000 for EB-5 investments made in rural or high unemployment areas designated as targeted employment areas (TEAs). Projects outside of TEAs require an investment of $1,800,000, but all of EB5AN’s EB-5 investment projects are located in TEAs and qualify for the lower investment threshold of $900,000.
- Creating or preserving at least 10 full-time jobs for qualifying U.S. workers that last a minimum of two years.
- Investing in a new commercial enterprise or a troubled business.
- Maintaining the at-risk status of the investment and using investment funds that have been lawfully sourced.
How to Evaluate an EB-5 Investment Project
EB-5 investors based in Henderson and the surrounding areas in Nevada should evaluate both financial and immigration risk when selecting an EB-5 investment project.
One requirement of a lucrative 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 “purchasing” 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.
