An EB5 entitles investors and entrepreneurs to live and work in the US. An EB5 is usually granted for an initial period of 2 years where the applicant will receive conditional resident status in the US. Once the condition is removed, the applicant will then receive a permanent US providing lawful permanent residence status in the US. In addition, the holder’s spouse and children may be entitled to accompany or join them in the United States permanently.
US permanent residents are entitled to attend any public or private school in the US, work in the US without a visa or employment authorization document, travel outside the US with few limitations, sponsor close relatives for US permanent residence and apply for US citizenship when eligible to do so.
