What are the Key Requirements for obtaining an EB-5 green card?

EB-5 KEY REQUIREMENTS

In general, EB-5 "eligible individuals" include those:

VISA BULLETIN summarizing availability of immigrant (green card) numbers during January 2007

The State Department's Visa Bulletin for January 2007 summarizes the availability of immigrant (green card) numbers during January 2007 for citizens of all countries, for immigration purposes. Because many categories for green cards are backlogged, it is important to check the current availability of immigrant numbers since you can not apply for adjustment of status or consular processing until your category is current (although you may be able to file the underlying petition, and you may be able to file for labor certification, etc., at any time).

Note that you are normally "CHARGEABLE" to the country in which you were born, although there are certain exceptions to that general rule. See our chargeability page. It is advisable to consult an immigration attorney regarding chargeability exceptions. An immigration lawyer can advise you on whether you meet a specific exception, and which country would be best to use for chargeability.
