I-829 EB-5 Immigrant Investor Application to Remove Conditional Status (Formal Green Card)

When the US embassy or consulate issues an immigrant visa or the immigration bureau approves the application for adjustment of status, the main applicant for investment immigration, his spouse, and children get a Conditional Resident Card, commonly known as a “temporary green card”. Within 90 days before the expiration of the temporary green card, that is, the conditional resident status, the main applicant for investment immigration, his spouse, and children must submit an application for removal of the conditional status, so as to obtain a formal permanent resident card (Permanent Resident Card), that is, the “permanent green card”. Typically, failure to file on time can result in loss of temporary green card status and deportation. When a conditional resident fails to submit an application in time due to uncontrollable factors, the USCIS will still accept late applications if there are reasonable reasons.

For decades, our Tsang & Associates law firm (Tsang & Associates) has provided investment immigration services to remove conditional status for many Kinmen embroidered clients, helping them obtain official permanent green cards.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Does investing in rural areas only require an investment of 900,000 US dollars to carry out investment immigration?

Yes, rural areas (referring to metropolises or areas other than towns with a population of more than 20,000), or areas with an unemployment rate of at least 150% of the national average unemployment rate are designated employment areas, and only need to invest $900,000.

When submitting an investment application, must the investment be completed?

no. When submitting an application, it is possible to apply even if the required investment amount is not reached, but at the time of the interview, it is necessary to prove that the required funds have been invested.

Do I need to prove that 10 jobs have been created when applying for investment immigration?

Instead of proving that 10 jobs have been created, 10 jobs will be created for U.S. citizens or permanent residents within two years.

Can I become a formal permanent resident after the investor immigration application is approved?

There is also a consulate interview (the investor is outside the United States) or a step of adjusting status (the investor is in the United States). This step is only to get a conditional green card, which must be completed within 90 days before the two-year conditional status expires. Apply to remove the conditional form in order to become an official permanent resident.

When several people invest together, do they only need to add up to 1.8 million?

No, each investor who wants to apply for investment immigration must contribute 1.8 million (or invest 900,000 in a specific employment area) US dollars.
