Obtaining legal permanent resident status using the EB-5 visa category does not require a family or employer sponsorship. Your permanent resident status would be based on the investment you make into a U.S. business that satisfies the EB-5 requirements.

No, the petition that you would file is based on your own personal investment.

No, you don''t. You just need to invest at least 1 million dollars ($ 500,000 in target employment area) into a new commercial enterprise and create 10 additional jobs within the new commercial enterprise. You can be the sole owner of the business or be a shareholder/ limited partner of the business.

No. When making the I-526 filing under the EB-5 program you are self petitioning and do not require a sponsor.

No, you do not need a sponsor for an EB-5 green card if you are referring to filing Form I-134 or I-864 by a sponsor for certain family or employment based cases.

All employment based green cards, have to be petitioned by an employer or company except the first category of EB1 for individuals of international acclaim. Therefore, an entity (investment entity) must petition for the applicant for his green card in the U. S. We are available if you have any further questions.

You are the petitioner in the I-526 immigration petition. You do not need another sponsor. Your petition is based on an investment, which can be a stand-alone project or regional center project. For more information about EB5, please visit our website. If you are in the Los Angeles area, we can schedule a meeting to discuss your immigration plan.

No, you do not need a sponsor. You do need to be able to show you have the funds to put at risk for the investment.

No need for one. But even if you needed one co-sponsor does not have to be related to you.

I am not sure what you mean by a sponsor. An EB-5 green card is based upon your investors petition showing your personal investment of funds in your own direct U.S. business or an EB-5 Regional Center project.

In filing an EB-5 petition, you (assuming you are the investor) are your own sponsor.

No; you do not need a sponsor or a Form I-134/Form I-864. As an EB-5 investor, you are the petitioner and you do not require any sponsor.

An EB-5 is not a sponsor based visa. It is an investment visa. If you are unclear; I will be happy to discuss with you.

Your EB-5 application is processed by USCIS, but you do not need a sponsor. There are other criteria that you must meet, so you should reach out to an immigration lawyer to discuss the specifics of your case.

No, you do not need a ''sponsor'' for an EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa. You as the Investor of the requisite capital (either $500,000 or $1,000,000) are Petitioning for yourself.

EB-5 is an investment immigration. If you investment $ 1 million (or $500,000 if the business or project is in TEA) on U.S. business enterprise, you are eligible to file the I-526, which is your petition. There is no other sponsor necessary.

In order to apply for an EB-5, you do not need a sponsor. All you need is invest either $1 million or $500,000.00, of your money on a new commercial enterprise or in a Regional Center approved project. The determination of which amount you will have to invest depends on where the new commercial enterprise is located. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you.
