How can we as EB-5 investors use the address of a friend or relative for a re-entry permit application?

I am an EB-5 investor who recently got a conditional green card. Due to personal circumstances, I have not yet been able to re-locate to the U.S. I would like to apply for a re-entry permit to save myself any hassles from CBP. Am I allowed to use a friend’s or relative’s address in my re-entry permit form?

    You must be inside the U.S. on the day when USCIS receives your Reentry Permit application. On the form, it allows you to have them send it to a specific address.

    The short answer is yes. You must be physically present in the United States when you apply for the reentry permit and you must complete any required biometrics (also in the United States).

    Yes, use your name c/o friend''s name and make sure friend advises the postman to leave your mail there.

    It does not help that you do not have ties here but if you put a care of address, they will likely accept.
