Under current law the only dependents that can benefit from your EB-5 application is a spouse and unmarried child or children under age 21. If you are unmarried under age 21, one of your parents may be the principal EB-5 investor and include you as a derivative beneficiary but not the other way around.
It is not possible. They need to either do their own EB-5 investment or once you become a U.S. citizen (five years after becoming an LPR you may petition for them as immediate relatives unless Congress ends this category per Trump''s request.
You cannot add your parents as dependents on your EB-5 visa petition. If you are unmarried and under the age of 21, your parent can add you and his or her spouse. Once you acquire your Lawful Permanent Residency on a conditional basis, 5 years later you are eligible for U.S. citizenship and then you could sponsor your parents and they could immigrate as immediate relatives of a U.S. citizen visa free. However, President Trump has proposed the elimination of the basis upon which a U.S. citizen may petition for their parents. At this time, Congress is not likely to enact such a proposal, but it could be part of a larger package of proposals.
Unfortunately, parents are not included as dependents on the EB-5 petition. As a petitioner, you can include your spouse and any unmarried children under the age of 21. If you are under 21, your parents can apply with you as a dependent.
Sorry, but parents cannot be dependents in an EB-5 petition. They could file their own EB-5 case. Or they can wait until you become a US citizen and you can then petition for your parents.
Only immediate relatives (spouse, your children under 21) qualify as derivative dependents. If you are under 21, then one of your parents can serve as the EB-5 investor and include you as the derivative dependent.
You can only list your spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21 as dependents on your EB-5 application. However, once you become a citizen of the United States, you can sponsor your parents for green cards to come to the United States.
The immigration benefit for dependents are for Spouse and children under 21 years of age. You cannot include your parents as derivatives. However, you may do a family-sponsorship once you obtain your citizenship after EB-5, if such category will remain after Trump and Congress revamps immigration.
If you are the primary petitioner, you can not. Under EB-5 rules, a petitioner may be accompanied by his or her spouse and unmarried children under 21. If you are single and under 21, the only option would be for you to withdraw your petition and let one of your parents re-submit as the petitioner and have your company as a child derivative. However, the viability of this option will depend on your current age and your parents' birth country. People born in China, for example, must currently wait several years before they can get their conditional green cards. If you are very close to turning 21, you may age out before you can get your conditional green card. I urge you to consult with an EB-5 attorney before you take any action with respect to your pending petition.
Unfortunately, you can only include your spouse and children under the age of 21 as dependents on your EB-5 application. Your parents could make a separate investment and file their own EB-5 application to qualify.
