What should an EB-5 applicant expect when applying for an EB-5 Visa?
First, investors should expect at least five years to complete the EB-5 visa application. This is due to many factors throughout the EB-5 visa process. Processing times vary due to heavy application submissions, the residency of the applicant, and much more. The Ashcroft Sullivan Economic Development Center makes sure our clients can support and sustain an investment of at least five years while they are completing the application process.
Second, engaging an immigration attorney. Attorneys are highly recommended and useful for the EB-5 visa application. They will assist and answer any questions an applicant might have during the visa process. We are happy to suggest an immigration attorney if you do not already have one.
Third, the paperwork. Investors should expect to complete a financial due diligence report, I-526 form, G-28 form, and DS-260 form, which consists of biographical documents, a medical exam, an interview, and an I-829 form. These are subjected to all EB-5 applicants, but some applicants might have to provide additional information as the process continues.
