ID-10080010Investor visas, also known as EB-5 visas, are extremely popular all around the world, but especially in China. The immigration program requires a minimum $500.000 to be invested in the U.S. in order to obtain a visa, and it seems that money is not an issue when it comes to living the American dream.

Last year, more than 9.000 Chinese immigrants got an investor visa, meaning 85.4% of total EB-5 visas issued in 2014 and 40 times more than any other nationality. The silver medal goes to South Korea, but the number is tiny compared to their neighbors. 225 visas were issued for South Korean citizens. Mexico takes the third place, Russia accounts for 100 visas, India 96, Canada 52, Iran 76, Nigeria 50, Japan 49, U.K. 41, South Africa 22, Brazil and Hong Kong 30 each.

In order to qualify for an EB-5 visa, one must be willing to invest $500.000 in a high-unemployment, rural area, without having to borrow money.
