Can I bring my family to the United States if I get an EB-5 visa?

If I participate in the immigrant investor program can I bring my family with me? Which members of my family? If they can come will each one have to invest the full amount?

Under the EB-5 visa program, an individual investor is allowed to also sponsor his/her immediate family based on that single investment. The immediate family is defined as the spouse and any unmarried children under the age of 21. Each family member does not need to make a qualifying investment; only the primary investor.

If you are the principal EB-5 foreign national investor,the if applicable your spouse and minor children under 21 years old can apply with you for permanent residency in the US. The first step requires the principal investor to file a I-526 petition and refer to the spouse and any minor children under 21 years old. For the whole family,the principal investor only has to invest the $500.000.00 and not each member of the family.

An EB-5 investor may be joined by his or her spouse as well as any unmarried children who are under the age of 21 (regardless of whether your children are also the children of your spouse). Any family members other than (1) current spouse; and/or (2) unmarried children under age 21 are not eligible to derive status based on an investor''s EB-5 investment, and would have to invest separately in order to apply for the immigration benefit.

EB-5 is an immigrant visa program. Thus, an investor who receives a conditional green card (temporary for 2 years) based on I-526 approval may obtain green card for his/her spouse and all of their children who are under 21 years old.

The EB5 program allows the investor to bring his/her spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21 to the U.S., provided, however, that none of these family members has any grounds of inadmissibility (such as criminal issues, prior deportations, etc). After becoming a U.S. citizen, you can file petitions for your parents or siblings.

Your spouse and unmarried children under 21 at the time of the petition filing are eligible to accompany you or follow to join as derivatives. They do not need to make their own investments.

If you apply for an EB-5 visa, your spouse and unmarried children under 21 can all accompany you under your petition. There''s no need for them to invest funds independently of you; only one investment of $500,000 (or $1,000,000) is necessary.

An approved I-526 petition of a foreign national investor allows the foreign national investor, their spouse, and children under 21 years old to seek U.S. permanent residence status under the EB-5 program. The foreign national investor must invest the minimum investment amount. Additional investments by the spouse or the children are not required.

Unmarried children under the age of 21 and spouses may join in the single investment and get the EB-5 green cards without investing any additional money. The single investment carries the case for all of the qualified family members.

An approved EB-5 immigrant visa provides an investor with the basis to apply for a green card or lawful permanent residency in the U.S. The investor’s spouse and children under 21 can also apply for the green card based on the investor’s approved EB-5 petition. Yes you can bring your spouse and children 21 years of age or younger. Only you have to invest either $500,000 or $1 million in the new commercial enterprise to receive the EB-5 benefit. Your dependents derive based on your approved I-526 (EB-5) petition.
