Make Capital Investment, File I-526 Petition
If one of our investment opportunities is right for you we will execute contracts that make you an official investor. At that time you will fund your investment and American Bridge EB5 will file your I-526 Petition through one of our Immigration Law partners – the initial step toward your U.S. green card.
The USCIS approval process of an I-526 petition should take about 4 to 6 months, but current estimates range from 6-9 months due to backlogs in processing by the USCIS. Upon approval, overseas investors must interview at their local U.S. consulate or embassy.
Alternatively, immigrant investors already in the U.S. may file an I-485 petition to adjust their status to lawful residency. In either case, processing time from making the investment to issuance of the conditional green card will typically take 8 to 12 months.
Upon receiving the conditional visa, the principal applicant and family member(s) must enter the U.S. within 180 days. The two-year conditional period starts the day the applicant enters the U.S.
