Can EB-5 applicants work for another company during their conditional residency?

Will I have to work at the EB-5 Regional Center after I am granted conditional permanent residency? Could I work at another company after the investment is made?

    Yes. Conditional residence gives open employment authorization. Warning: the investors legal obligations and responsibilities under EB-5 must be satisfied as well.

    Yes. Investors are free to pursue other work when they are conditional residents.

    You do not have to work at a regional center. You may work anywhere you wish.

    EB-5 applicants rarely, if ever, work for the Regional Center at any time. Once work authorization is obtained, the EB-5 applicant can work without restrictions in the US.

    After completing the first two steps of the EB-5 process, the foreign national and his or her family members become conditional U.S. permanent residents. Conditional permanent residents can work in the United States for any employer.
