The EB-5 Visa Investment Program - The Vermont Regional Center
The Vermont Regional Center, operated by the state’s Agency of Commerce and Community Development, provides foreign investors an attractive option for international investment through the EB-5 Visa Program.
The largely rural nature of our state means that nearly the entire state qualifies as a targeted employment area. The minimum investment requirement for projects in these designated areas is half the amount required in other areas – $500,000 US – making the program more accessible for potential investors.
Vermont understands the value of access. Our size and geographic location allows businesses easy access to community leaders, state officials, business resources, and to a market of over 80 million people within a few hundred miles. Access to resources and markets help our businesses succeed and create a stable economy.
Why investors choose Vermont
- Faster approvals. Vermont’s status as an approved Regional Center means that investors’ petitions are given priority by CIS, resulting in a faster path to approval.
- Easier access. Nearly the entire state is a Targeted Employment Area, thus reducing the required investment level by half to $500,000 U.S. funds. Additionally, investors only need to show indirect employment – 10 jobs created in the Regional Center economy – as a result of the investment, versus 10 direct jobs required in other areas.
- State oversight. The state Agency of Commerce and Community Development operates the Vermont Regional Center. The Agency’s day to day involvement with the Vermont business community means we are well informed of business activity in the region and can ensure our projects are well qualified.
- Stable economy. Vermont’s economy is comprised of a broad range of industries. This industry diversification results in a healthy economy, stable employment and a better ability to weather economic cycles.
