After you have been part of the EB-5 green card program for two years – and after you have successfully invested your money in a United States business, regional center, or project – you may file for permanent residency. When you move from having a conditional green card to being a permanent resident, many restrictions are lifted, and your freedom to work, live, and travel increases.
In order to secure permanent residency, you must file Form I-829 (Petition by Entrepreneur to Remove Conditions) with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services within 90 days of your two-year Eb-5 immigration visa anniversary. This three-page form should be filed with the USCIS California Service Center and comes with a fee of $3,835 – read the four pages of instructions carefully. In addition, a biometrics services fee of $85 is due for each dependent staying with you.
Do you need assistance with your EB-5 investment immigration plan, or help removing the conditions from your residency status after two years of having a conditional green card? The Investment Immigration lawyers at the Law Offices of Vaughan de Kirby can help guide you and your family through the process and to permanent, unconditional residency in the United States.
