EB5 Process

Easiest and Fastest way to get your American green card and citizenship.

India is a fast-growing market for EB5 applicants, seeking to migrate to the United States for educational, business and career opportunities not only for themselves but their families and children too.

Following their graduation from US colleges, many students prefer to gain work experience in the U.S.A and become residents too. This is where the EB5 program can open up a vista of opportunities that students would not otherwise have.

The EB5 visa can be the key to setting up your child in the U.S.A before or after they have studied there as it not only helps in employment after but can also save you thousands of dollars in educational fee and opens up many opportunities whilst in college such as seeking valuable internships etc.

The EB5 Project Selection Process begins by reviewing Universal EB5 USA Services closed and current EB-5 Projects with one of our professionals.

Each EB5 Project is unique with different returns and different risks. The type of investment may be in the form of Senior Debt, Junior Debt, Preferred Equity or Common Equity. The level of projected risks and return will differ depending on which type of investment is chosen.

Most EB5 Projects will require investments of $500,000 per participant, while some may require investments of $1,000,000. The higher amount might be required for EB5 Projects that have higher projected returns or greater safety.

The location of the Project does not matter for Immigration purposes. As an EB5 Participant, you can live anywhere in the United States.

Once you have selected an EB5 Project, Universal EB5 USA Services experts will work with you to complete a Subscription Booklet. We can assist in English, Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu, Turkish, Russian, French or in your native language.

After this, you will wire your funds to the Escrow Bank where the funds are held until your I-526 Visa Application is filed with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services and other conditions required by the EB5 Project’s documents are satisfied.
