How the EB5 Visa Program Works:
Step 1: Getting Started
The first step is to contact us! Talk to Houston EB5 about your situation and see if you qualify for the EB5 Program. Before participating in a Regional Center EB-5 investment program, each investor independently petitions USCIS for an EB-5 visa.
Step 2: Conditional Green Card
Qualified investors investing through a Regional Center receive a conditional green card valid for two years. Upon receipt of conditional permanent resident status, the investor and immediate family are entitled to the same benefits as other lawful permanent residents.
Step 3: Apply for Your Permanent Green Card
Simply file your I-829 application to remove your conditional status and receive your permanent green card. At this point, the Regional Center is required to provide proof of job creation on your – the investor’s – behalf.
Step 4: Get Your Permanent Green Card
Once the conditions are removed at the end of the 24-month period, the investor and his immediate family members become permanent green card holders and can later apply to become U.S. citizens.
The EB-5 visa program is one of the most flexible paths to a green card available. The immigrant investor is not required to manage the business’ day-to-day operations, can invest in an existing business or a new business, and the investor is not required to live in the region where the investment is made.
Additionally, funds may come from any legal foreign or US source; including gifts, loans, and divorce settlements. Borrowed investment funds qualify as long as the assets of the target US business do not secure the loan.
