As our potential investors become more familiar with our specific project investment and the EB-5 Green Card possibilities, we recommend they take time to explore The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the government agency that oversees lawful immigration to the United States. This agency will be of great service as you gain a better understanding of citizenship benefits and the immigration system.

The EB-5, known as the Immigrant Investor Program, was created by Congress in 1990 under 203(b)(5) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) to provide immigrant investors with the opportunity to make capital investments while securing lawful permanent residence in the United States for themselves and immediate family members.

In order to determine eligibility for classification as an EB-5 alien investor under the Regional Center Pilot Program, each alien investor will need to file an individual Form I-526 petition. Once approved, each investor will need to file a Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, to adjust status in the United States, or apply for an immigrant visa abroad, in order to obtain Conditional Permanent Resident (CPR) status. Within the 90-day period of time that precedes the two-year anniversary of the investor’s admission to the United Sates or adjustment of status as a CPR, the investor will need to file a Form I-829 petition. This petition will need to show that the investor has met all terms and conditions of the EB-5 program.
