Imperial Valley has seven areas in FTZ #257. These areas are considered outside the United States by U.S. Customs. Imported material or merchandise imported into the zones is excluded from customs duties and excise taxes until it leaves the FTZ. Materials and goods exported outside the U.S. are excluded from being charged a duty.
FTZ benefits include:

The EB-5 Program allows foreign investors to obtain immigration benefits for having made an investment. The EB-5 Program calls for a minimum investment of $1,000,000 USD. This sum may be reduced currently to $500,000 USD if the enterprise that receives the investment is situated in a Targeted Employment Area (TEA).
Imperial Valley is a TEA. To qualify as an EB-5 investor, each investor must demonstrate that 10 full-time, year-round jobs will be created on account of the investment.
