Application Process Steps
In order to become an immigrant investor in the EB-5 Regional Center Program, a potential investor will take the following steps:
|Step 1||Please register your interest in the Contact Us section of this web site. Potential investors are also invited to call or send an email for a telephone consultation. They are also encouraged to visit the site and inspect the project first hand.|
|Step 2||The investor completes the preliminary Accredited Investor and Immigration Questionnaire|
|Step 3||A full prospectus will be sent to interested investors, who can then investigate the financial viability of the investment, and the track record of the Developer.|
|Step 4||The investor will be required at this point to complete the initial application documents and escrow agreement, and to submit an initial, refundable deposit of $20,000.|
|Step 5||The investor may retain independent legal counsel to act on his/her behalf. We will provide a list of qualified immigration attorneys who are familiar with our Regional Center and Project, upon request. Documents to be filed with the U.S.C.I.S. and relevant documentation and application process will be filed by the Developer’s counsel. The investor will then provide all documents requested by legal counsel, and will receive copies of offering memorandum and LLC agreement.|
|Step 6||The investor will pay balances of investment funds and administration fee ($20,000 in fees and $500,000 Capital Investment).|
|Step 7||The investor will sign all necessary application documents for U.S.C.I.S. submission.|
|Step 8||Counsel will file I-526 Petition for Alien Entrepreneur with the U.S.C.I.S. This petition requests U.S.C.I.S. to certify the applicant and the investment as eligible for EB-5 status.|
|Step 9||The Bank Escrow Agent will release the balance of investment funds pursuant to the escrow agreement to the LLC upon the approval of an investor's immigration petition application or to the investor in the event an investor's immigration petition application is denied.|
Upon approval of the Petition:
a) If the investor is in the United States, he/she may apply for Adjustment of Status to Conditional Resident status.
b) If abroad, the investor must wait for notification from the National Visa center to prepare documents for the Immigrant Visa interview at the U.S. Consulate or Embassy in his/her home country.
The purpose of the Adjustment of Status or Immigrant Visa interview is to ensure that the investor is not subject to grounds of exclusion, such as a criminal past, infectious diseases, or other grounds for exclusion by law.
|Step 11||Once issued conditional permanent resident status, the investor needs to wait 21 months to reconfirm that the full investment has been made and that 10 jobs have been or are in the process of being created.|
|Step 12||The investor will be able to file an application to remove the conditional resident status (Form I -829) between 21 to 24 months after Conditional Resident status is approved.|
|Step 13||Once conditional resident status is removed, a full Green Card is granted for indefinite permanent resident status and work permission in the United States. U.S. Citizenship is possible 5 years after conditional residency is approved, upon satisfaction of residence and other criteria.|
