Qualified immigrants investing through a regional center receive a conditional green card valid for two years. The initial process typically takes approximately two years for an EB-5 applicant to receive a conditional green card.

The investor, spouse and unmarried children (under age 21 at the time of petition) can then apply for permanent residency based on investment. If approved, the investor and his immediate family become permanent green card holders and can later apply to become U.S. citizens. Upon receipt of conditional permanent resident status, the investor and immediate family are entitled to the same benefits as other lawful permanent residents.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs

A. Currently the minimum EB-5 investment amount is $500,000. There is also a $50,000 administration fee and a $15,000 attorney fee. In addition there are USCIS filing fees.
That depends on your country of origin. Normally the process takes 6-7 years. However, due to the popularity of the EB-5 program in China the process can be substantially longer for Chinese EB-5 investors due to the backlog.
No. USCIS requires that all funds be traceable to a legal source.
You would need to go return to your home country or country of residence and process through the Embassy as opposed to adjusting status here in the US. The exception would be if you qualify to extend your H-1 status or change to another non-immigrant status. We can screen for that if needed. For Indian EB-5 investors processing immigrant visas through the Embassy can be done quickly since there is presently no visa bulletin backlog for EB-5 India.
Yes. The EB-5 investor, spouse, and any children under the age of 21 at the time the application is received by USCIS qualify. No additional EB-5 investment is required for the spouse and children.
That varies depending on the college. At the University of Texas in Austin the in state tuition for their undergraduate program is presently $5,207 per semester and the out-of-state tuition is 18,492. That's a difference of $13,285 per semester or $106,280 for all 8 semester (4 year degree).
Yes, however any loan has to be secured with the investor's personal property or the funds won't be considered "at risk." For example, some investors do cash out refinances of their primary residence.
This depends on the context. The EB-5 can proceed regardless of whether someone has a tourist visa or not. A person might be denied a tourist visa if they have an EB-5 case pending. A person may be found to have committed fraud in the tourist visa process if they answer "no" to questions on the DS-160 about whether an immigrant petition has ever been filed for them (because if there is an I-526 filed, the answer should be "yes"), and the fraud might stop them from getting their immigrant visa even after the I-526 is approved.
A. That depends on your country of origin. Currently it takes approximately 24 months for EB-5 applicants to receive their temporary green card. However, due to the popularity of the program in China there is a significant backlog for Chinese investors and it can be up significantly longer.
No, USCIS requires that the money be "at risk". Any guarantees would prevent EB-5 investors from becoming U.S. citizens.
Your investment will be returned as soon as possible. Your attorney fees will also be reimbursed. The admin fee is not reimbursable.
Yes. If you meet the minimum residency requirement your children will qualify for the in state tuition at U.S. colleges. For example, at the University of Texas non-citizens and non-permanent residents qualify if they have an application for permanent residency on file with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service and meet the minimum residency requirements (e.g., domiciled in Texas for at least 12 months).
Yes. However, they will have to go through the normal process of proving the source of those funds. That means they will have to establish that those funds came from a legitimate/legal source.
This would depend on the context of the situation - is the corporation owned by a family member, etc? Our immigration attorney would be happy to review any proposed corporate gifts.
This could have negative consequences depending on the length of time you have over stayed your visa. You would need to consult with our immigration to attorney to determine whether it would prevent you from applying for an EB-5 visa.
A lawful permanent resident (LPR) may apply for naturalization to become a U.S. citizen if he or she has been an LPR for at least five years (time in conditional status counts toward the five-year period) and has been physically present in the United States for at least two and a half years without any single period of absence exceeding 180 days. In order to become a U.S. citizen they must also demonstrate good moral character (no criminal convictions), must read, write, and speak English, and must pass a test on U.S. history, government, civics. They must be loyal to the United States and understand and agree to take the Oath of Allegiance to the United States.
They can sponsor their parents immediately after they become U.S. citizens. The process to sponsor parents usually takes approximately 1.5 years and then the parents can move to the United States.
