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

It’s very difficult to effectively evaluate the risks associated with EB-5 regional center investments on your own. And with regular news stories of failed EB-5 projects, its easy to feel unsure about whether an EB-5 investment will get you what you expect: Green Cards for your family and the full return of your capital.

You deserve independent and transparent analysis, presented in a simple to understand fashion, so that you can make an informed investment decision.

The EB-5 Process

EB-5 is fundamentally an economic development program, with permanent U.S. residency (Green Cards) offered as an incentive to encourage wealthy individuals to invest a minimum of $900,000 into a new commercial enterprise, and create 10 new jobs for Americans.

Choose an appropriate EB-5 investment

Third-party due diligence helps ensure that the investment you select is highly likely to meet the immigration program requirements and to return your capital in full.

File Form I-526

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

Your petition will demonstrate your lawful source of funds, and a business plan that meets program requirements.

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 Form DS-260.

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 the EB-5 project occurred.

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

“EB5 Diligence can help investors navigate the complex EB-5 program. They understand the proper relationships between immigration and securities law and economic job creation models to properly advise their clients.” 

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.”
