Can I just take over an existing business with the required investment and continue?

ANSWER: 

That depends upon how old the business is and how you wish to structure your ownership.

According to USCIS, an eligible enterprise for EB-5 investment is one that is either established after Nov. 29, 1990, or established on or before Nov. 29, 1990, and is:


1. Purchased and the existing business is restructured or reorganized in such a way that a new commercial enterprise results, or


2. Expanded through the investment so that a 40-percent increase in the net worth or number of employees occurs
