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 each EB-5 investment on your own.
With news stories of failed projects coming out almost weekly, you might feel overwhelmed or unsure of how to properly review and select an EB-5 investment. There is no need to feel like this. You deserve independent and transparent analysis to help you make an informed investment decision.

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, which is reduced to $900,000 if the new commercial enterprise (NCE) being invested in is located in a Targeted Employment Area (TEA).
First, you choose an EB-5 investment. Real estate projects have historically been preferred by investors, but that appears to be changing as investors seek higher returns and as growth companies enter the EB-5 market.
After making the investment, you will file Form I-526 with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) with the help of an experienced EB-5 immigration lawyer.
Once your I-526 petition is approved, you and your family will be interviewed at the U.S. Consulate and, after approval, given Green Cards. If you are already in the U.S., you'll file Form I-485 to adjust your status. You are then conditional permanent U.S. residents for the next two years.
One year and nine months after entering the U.S., you'll be asked to 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” during this period, and that no material changes to your investment occurred.
Upon approval, you and your family become permanent U.S. residents.
