Quite simply, the EB-5 is an Immigrant Investor Visa Program known as EB-5 Visa created by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (“USCIS”) which is authorized to issue up to ten thousand (10,000) EB-5 US Permanent Residency Visas annually to qualified foreign investors and their families.
The EB-5 Visa Program was established to offer immigrant investors and their families the opportunity to obtain a US Green Card (Permanent Residence Status) in a short period of time, receiving priority immigrant visa processing by making a commercial investment in the United States of America.
The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program requires that foreign clients adhere to a three-step process to be completed when seeking their US Green Card: -1- The first step requires that an Immigrant Petition be prepared for the investor and their family members. -2- Secondly, it must be approved by the USCIS, and then the immigrant investor and their family will obtain their conditional US Green Cards. -3- Finally, we file the immigrant investor’s Petition to Remove Conditions and they will become legal permanent residents of the United States of America (US Green Card holders).
