Entering the United States through our EB-5 program has never been easier. Step Global will walk you through the process, crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s along the way. With immigration through investment, we’ll bring your future in the USA one step closer. For those wanting to become permanent residents of the USA, the EB-5 Regional Center Program offers a route through investment for you, your spouse and any unmarried children under the age of 21. The requirement of the programme is that you make an investment of $1.8million into an appropriate project. With the Regional Center this can be your own business venture.

After securing the investment capital your immigration attorney will file an I-526 petition with the USCIS, the I-526 takes between 30 and 52 months to process. Once processed, you’ll complete a two-year conditional resident period allowing for the completion of your investment in your chosen project. Filing a DS-260 form for those just arriving or an I-485 for those already on American soil.

You will be required to spend at least 2.5 of the 5 years on US soil and must land on US soil at least once every 6 months during the 5-year period. Once you have completed your conditional status period, you can apply for your permanent residence with an I-829 petition. When processed and cleared the USCIS will issue your green cards. Five years after the anniversary for your conditional status, you may apply to become a full citizen of the United States of America
