How Much Should You Invest for an EB-1C Visa?


Of course, when it comes to acquiring an existing business, various options are possible. The cost of the acquired company for EB-1c level is influenced by the state where the company operates, the current market conditions, and a number of other factors. Nevertheless, on average, the cost of a business of this level will be approximately $500,000 or more.

Reducing the size of the required investment is possible in two cases:

Transition to an EB-1c visa from an L-1 visa.

In fact, if you do not have half a million dollars today, you can open a new company and get an L-1 visa for it, and then, within a year or more, develop this company to the level required for EB-1c, allowing you to file a new petition, this time for EB-1c.

Buying a franchise is becoming a hot trend in the American market. This option gives the applicant, on the one hand, the opportunity to secure a known and proven business concept: it is easier to maintain its level and calculate development under an existing brand. On the other hand, it is possible to significantly reduce the amount of required investments. Indeed, in this option, it is possible to acquire a controlling stake in the company (51%), when in fact you pay only half of the cost of the business, becoming a passive investor. The previous owner will continue to manage the company, and you will receive your share of the profits.
