What immigration actions could bar me from obtaining EB-5?

I visited the USA in 2009 and I was there for 30 days longer than I was permitted. I returned to Brazil and now have fully economic conditions to apply for an EB-5 visa. Does the fact that I exceeded the period in 2009 make me unable to obtain the EB-5?

A thirty day overstay will not bar you from receiving an EB-5 visa.

If you did not exceed your status by 180 days or more, or work illegally, you should be eligible to apply for an EB-5 visa.

Your overstay should not bar you from receiving EB-5, provided you were not deported or in any other immigration proceedings.

You are ok. A 30 day overstay will not bar your EB-5 application.

A 30 day overstay will not create a problem for the EB-5 investment. I will be happy to discus further.

No, a 30 day overstay is not considered unlawful presence and would not require a waiver.

Your overstay for 30 days will not be a problem.

It does not appear that you accrued more than 180 days of unlawful presence in the United States. Therefore, would not be subject to a reentry bar. As long as you did not make any material misrepresentations, which does not appear to be the case, you should be eligible for an EB-5 immigrant visa. The only consequences to your 30-day overstay in 2009 is that the visa you used to enter the U.S. was void as of the date of the overstay and cannot be used for reentry to the United States. You must apply for a new visa in your home country. Therefore, it seems like you are eligible for EB-5 classification.

The answer to your question is NO. The fact you overstayed for 30 days may have required you to obtain a new non-immigrant vid to return to the U.S. However now you are filing an investors petition and upon approval you will be applying for a conditional permanent residency visa at the U.S. consulate; it will be approvable. If you had overstayed for more than 6 months then you would be stopped from coming back into the U.S. for 3 years, but this not the case here.

No, as long as you do not have other immigration violations and your overstay was less than 180 days.

30 days overstay a few years ago will not be a reason to deny an EB-5 classification now.

No, the fact that you overstayed 30 days beyond your visa status does not trigger any bar. Just make sure you inform your attorney of this fact so that proper disclosure can be made.

You may have problems getting a visa from the consulate depending on other facts. It doesn''t sound like you were subject to the 3 year bar for your overstay and in case the 3 year time period is past already. Consult with an Immigration Attorney before acting on this information.

If you only overstayed your visa by 30 days, you should be OK to apply for EB-5.

Unlawful presence is an issue, but if it was less than six months (you mention 30 days) you should be fine. Even if it had exceeded three months, but less than one year you would have a three-year bar to admission, which would have expired in 2012. You should be fine applying for EB-5, but make sure that you are truthful with regards to the overstay.

No. You can apply for a waiver of inadmissibility.
