An EB-5 Success Story
The EB5 Investor Visa Program provides the quickest, and safest path to US Green Cards for you and your family. At US Freedom Capital our trusted advisors guide you through every step of the process to make sure that the investment, and immigration process are seamless.
How long does it take to get the Green Card once I have invested the required $500,000 amount?
The green card process starts only when the investment is made. Once the money is invested in the ESCROW account, your EB-5 application will be filed (i.e. is the I526 Petition). Now the application will be reviewed at two levels: first, the applicant has to be approved by the US immigration which takes around 7-8 months and second, the project has to be approved which takes around 14-15 months. The stated duration is the maximum amount of time that may elapse, however, some projects get
approved in 6 months.
This delay is caused due to limitations in the number of economists who have to review the entire project. The staff is being rammed up by US immigration and this should speedup as we go along the years. Once the project is approved, all the investors in that project get approved. It’s the backlog of pending projects submitted for approval that takes time. Both the approvals i.e. person and project are essential. Once these two approvals happen from different department’s simultaneously, the applicant gets an email from the US immigration stating that you have been approved subject to a consulate interview. After this letter it takes about a month to get an interview with the US Embassy or Consulate, after which you get the permission to enter US. The day you enter US your green card is activated. So, it can take anywhere from 18-24 months depending on how soon the investor invests the money and how soon the documents are submitted, post this, it’s up to the US immigration (USCIS).
How long will it take for me to get my investment back?
Five years is the term loan written in the agreement, beyond this there is a 90-180-day grace period given to the developer of the project in case there are some exceptional delays. If the delay is caused by negligence, 5 years is the maximum time given, beyond which a penalty clause gets activated and interest is calculated with penalties. Hence the developer will have to return the money along with the penalties attached. There are certain indirect collaterals available, in case the developer defaults, USFC can take over the collaterals and start paying the EB-5 investors. This is only in an exceptional case. In most cases, the investor will start receiving his money between 4-5 years. 4 years being the minimum period of getting the investment and 5 years being the maximum.
