EB5 Visa Program | Top 5 Considerations

What are the top 5 things to know about the EB5 Visa Program?

EB5 is the US citizenship investment program that requires an investment of US$ 900,000 (approximately INR 6.5 crore) into a US project. Below is a bird’s eye view on important things to know:

  • Investment of US$ 900,000 is required to be done in a Regional Centre or a direct eb5 project. This amount will not be returned back to the investor normally until a period of 6 years. Capital repayment is not guaranteed, and so is not the interest portion on that capital.
  • Application has to be done by a single individual only, although benefit of green card & citizenship is available to the whole family (family includes spouse and children under the age of 21 or less depending on retrogression). Further, parents can be sponsored for free of cost once citizenship is successfully obtained.
  • The first stage of application is called I-526 which takes 2 years to get adjudicated following which an applicant gets the conditional green card (along with his entire family members); two years after which I-829 is to be filed for removal of conditions.
  • While there are no requirements of language, age, caste, etc.; however, one must be able to prove sources of funds (i.e. how the investment amount was generated).
  • It is important to not violate FEMA & Indian laws as that will hit you back not only for the purposes of getting American green card but also with local regulatory authorities in India.
