This preference is for those who invest $1 million in a commercial enterprise that employs at least 10 full-time employees. A conditional residence for two years will be provided, and if the applicant has substantially met the capital investment requirement, a permanent residency can be obtained by requesting for the removal of the condition.
A lesser investment of $500,000 may qualify if the investment is in one of the targeted employment areas that includes rural area with populations of less than 20,000 or locations with an unemployment rate at 150 percent of the national average.
