How can my whole family give up our conditional EB-5 green cards?

Our whole family received our conditional green cards via the EB-5 program. Now we have decided to give up our green cards. We are residing in China and I was told that we could do this in person at the USCIS Beijing or Guangzhou Field Offices. Do my wife and my daughter (over 21) need to go to those offices in person to complete their paperwork? I am the main applicant on the application.

    Both your wife and child need to go to the Guangzhou Field office to fill out the forms and give up the green cards.

    Your information is correct. You, your wife and your daughter, should visit the USCIS Field Office, complete the interview, and sign the paperwork giving up the green card.

    The family only needs to abandon its conditional green cards by filing Form I-407. No fee is needed and you can file it at the nearest U.S. consulate or embassy to you. As the main applicant, you can file the form on behalf of the entire family.

    There is a USCIS form to record an abandonment of a green card. Please consult with immigration attorneys to assist you.

    If you want to abandon your LPR Card, you must complete the I-407 and appear at the United States consulate.

    That is the best way to do it and then, if interested, you can apply for visitor visas at the same time.

    You can do it in person in China. If you prefer, an attorney can do it without appearance. You need to ensure it is done properly.

    Your safest course of action is to contact the U.S. consulate in Beijing for instructions.

    The I-407 voluntary renunciation of residency process will require all of your family members to appear in person at the embassy or consulate.
