Julia RoussinovaImmigration Attorney
You have all the rights of a permanent resident and can live and work or establish a business anywhere in the United States - except you have to remove conditions on your conditional two-year green cards by filing an I-829 petition. An EB-5 investor and family members (spouse and unmarried children under age 21) receive a two-year green card upon approval of the investor's I-526 petition. Once the condition is removed after approval of the I-829 petition, an EB-5 investor and family receive permanent green cards. An EB-5 investor and family are eligible to apply for U.S. citizenship four years and nine months after the granting of the resident status in the United States.
