Are there any nationality restrictions for EB-5 applicants?

Nationality Restrictions for EB-5

To date there are no restrictions based on nationality for the EB-5 application. Any foreign national may apply.

Prospective EB-5 investors from any country may apply for an EB-5 visa provided they otherwise meet the requirements as EB-5 investors. EB-5 investors from certain countries such as Iran must also first apply to receive an OFAC license from the Office of Foreign Assets Control allowing such investors to transfer investment capital to a target investment in the United States before application for an EB-5 visa is filed with USCIS.
