Will your EB-5 investment result in a Green Card and the full return of capital?

It’s almost impossible to effectively evaluate the risks associated with EB-5 regional center investments on your own. With news stories of failed EB-5 projects coming out regularly, you are likely to feel unsure about any EB-5 investment project. There is no need to feel like this. You deserve independent and transparent analysis to help you make an informed investment decision.

The EB-5 Process

EB-5 is fundamentally an immigration by investment program that promotes U.S. economic activity and job creation. The minimum EB-5 investment amount is $1.8m, but is reduced to $900,000 if the new commercial enterprise (NCE) invested in is located in a Targeted Employment Area (TEA).

Choose an appropriate EB-5 investment

Third-party due diligence significantly helps ensure that an EB-5 project is likely to meet program requirements and return your capital in full.

Real estate projects have historically been preferred, but USCIS policy changes have encouraged investments in non-urban areas, often with higher rates of return.

File Form I-526

After making an investment, you will file Form I-526 with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), with the help of an immigration lawyer experienced in EB-5.

This petition demonstrates your lawful source and path of funds, and a business plan that meets program requirements, including addressing the "at risk" requirement and the strategy to create of 10 full-time U.S. jobs.

Receive conditional Green Cards

Once your I-526 petition is approved, if you are already in the U.S., you'll file Form I-485 to adjust your status. If you are outside the U.S., you will file an online DS-260 petition.

Upon approval of either petition, you and your family become conditional permanent U.S. residents for the next two years.

Remove Green Card conditions

One year and nine months after entering the U.S., you'll submit Form I-829, showing evidence that your investment created the 10 full-time U.S. jobs required, proof that your investment was sustained “at-risk”, and that no material changes to your EB-5 project occurred.

Once this is approved, your conditions are removed  and your family become permanent U.S. residents.

Steve Yale-Loehr | Immigration Attorney, Professor of Immigration Studies at Cornell University Law School

“Our work with EB5 Diligence has been great. They asked all the right questions and knew exactly what they were looking for. The turn-around time on the report was quick, and we were given the opportunity to provide more documentation on certain aspects. The report was very fair and balanced.” 

Brian Ostar | President, EB5 Capital, regional center

“Professional, insightful and helpful. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Rupy at EB5 Diligence. The due diligence report was thorough and allowed me to make a well-informed decision regarding a potential EB-5 project that I was considering. I would recommend the services of EB5 Diligence to any potential, discerning EB5 investor who is willing to part with their investment capital prior to doing so. Thank you, Rupy!” 

Mitan Nana | EB-5 investor, South Africa

I contacted the team at EB5 Diligence when we were under a time deadline to file an EB-5 petition. They spent the time to review various investment options one of which was eventually selected by our client. This process allowed me and my co-counsel to focus on the legal issues relating to the EB-5 process while EB5 Diligence was advising the client on project selection. I  have no hesitation in recommending them to others.”
