Default Are EB-5 visas really available to people from any country?

Are EB-5 visas really available to people from any country in the world?
Does that include smaller less-developed countries?
I am from Ghana, e,g, is that still possible as a practical matter.

Legally, yes.
However, as a practical matter people from countries without reliable tax and financial documentation may find it more difficult due to the documentation requirements of the visa.
Keep your records in order!

US Citizenship and Immigration Services administers the EB-5 Program. Under this program, entrepreneurs (and their spouses and unmarried children under 21) are eligible to apply for a Green Card (permanent residence) if they make the necessary investment in a commercial enterprise in the United States; and plan to create or preserve 10 permanent full-time jobs for qualified U.S. workers. This program is known as EB-5 for the name of the employment-based fifth preference visa that participants receive.

There are no country-based restrictions to apply for an EB-5 visa. All foreign nationals can file an EB-5 petition. Once the EB-5 petition is approved, you can apply for the conditional permanent residency visa.

I personally can't help but feel they discriminate against countries that are third world countries...
