EB-5 Visa Program in India

 

Many Indian nationals are looking to obtain their U.S. Green Card but with the current administration’s recent crackdown on H-1B visas as well as the lengthy waiting lists for EB-2 and EB-3 visas, many Indians have had to look for an alternative green card to allow them to live the American Dream and work in the United States.

Because of this, the largely popular EB-5 Visa program has now become of extreme interest to Indian nationals. The number of Indians applying for the EB-5 Program is expected to more than double this year.

The growing demand for EB-5 has spread throughout India with many Indian citizens looking to invest with U.S. Immigration Fund from Hyderabad, Chandigarh, Punjab, Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Bengaluru and more.

What is EB-5?

The EB-5 Program was created in 1990 by the U.S. Congress to allow foreign investors the opportunity to obtain their U.S. Green Card by investing in a U.S. business that will create jobs for Americans and benefit the economy.

The EB-5 Investor Visa Program enables residents of India to obtain their U.S. green card by investing a minimum of US $500,000 into a new commercial enterprise through a Regional Center, like U.S. Immigration Fund.

The EB-5 Program is one of the easiest and fastest ways to immigrate to the United States and many consider it the best alternative to the H-1B Visa for Indians.

Although a fast path to American citizenship, the process can still seem confusing for some Indian investors. Working with an experienced team like U.S. Immigration Fund gives the investor piece of mind.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the EB-5 process take?

Our estimates at present indicate that the entire EB-5 process should take approximately 5 years for Indian citizens to complete. Based on current processing times by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”), an Indian citizen should receive an I-526 approval in approximately 18 months.  It will then take approximately 4-6 months for the Investor and his/her family to complete consular processing at a U.S. consulate in India or complete adjustment of status in the United States. After one year and nine months of holding conditional lawful permanent resident status, an Investor may file form I-829 to remove the conditions on his/her lawful permanent residence.  The form I-829 petition must be filed with USCIS no later than the 2nd anniversary of the investor’s conditional lawful permanent resident status (this date appears on the conditional green card).  Based on current processing times, an Indian citizen should receive an I-829 approval and unconditional green card within 18 to 24 months. USCIS anticipates processing times to improve as they hire additional adjudicators this year.

Is there a visa waiting list for Indian investors?

No. Unlike investors born in the People’s Republic of China, who have to wait approximately 3.5 years before receiving their conditional green card after an I-526 approval, Indian citizens are currently not subject to a visa waiting list.

As an EB-5 Investor, what benefits are available to my family, including my parents?

Under the EB-5 visa program, an individual investor’s spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21 are allowed to receive green cards and accompany the investor to the U.S. as derivative beneficiaries. Each family member does not need to make a qualifying investment.

Under U.S. immigration law, parents of the EB-5 investor are not considered immediate relatives and therefore cannot accompany the investor to the United States as part of the investor’s family unit under one EB-5 visa process.  Should the EB-5 investor choose to apply for U.S. citizenship after 5 years of holding permanent resident status, the investor could sponsor his/her parents for a family based green card as a U.S. citizen.

As a U.S. Lawful Permanent Resident, would global income be taxable in both India and the USA?

Generally, under U.S. tax laws, persons who become U.S. green card holders (lawful permanent residents), and people who spend at least one-half of each calendar year physically present in the U.S., are likely considered residents of the U.S. for tax purposes. The general rule of the U.S. tax system is that a person who is a U.S. tax resident is taxed on their worldwide income. Assets are not usually taxed unless income is generated on the asset or the asset is sold and a taxable financial gain results. The U.S. and India have entered into a Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement which seeks to minimize situations where people and companies are taxed both in the U.S. and India. Our law firm strongly recommends potential EB-5 investors to seek professional tax advice to address their individual tax situation and enable proper tax planning. Our law firm does not advise on U.S. taxation issues.

How much time do I have to spend in the United States as a U.S. Lawful Permanent Resident?

Lawful permanent resident (“LPR”) status is a residency permit that is intended to allow people to live in the United States on a long-term basis. It is not a tourist or visitor visa that is intended for short and sporadic visits to the United States.  If a person holding LPR status spends significant amounts of time outside the United States, returning only for brief visits, it likely that they could encounter detailed questions when then seek to re-enter the U.S. from officers of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) to determine whether the person is complying with their status as a LPR.  Generally, persons who hold LPR status should not engage in one trip lasting more than 6 months outside the United States.

If a person holding LPR status expects to travel for longer than 6 months outside the United States without returning, then many of our clients find it best to apply for a reentry permit from USCIS. The reentry permit is the strongest proof of one’s intention to remain an LPR in light of extended travel outside of the U.S. A reentry permit can be applied for prior to the LPR’s departure from the United States. Upon approval, the LPR holder obtains a passportstyle travel document issued by USCIS. Even if the LPR does not intend to be outside of the U.S. for a full year, our firm recommends that an LPR obtain a reentry permit if he/she intends to spend significant time outside of the U.S., e.g. more than 6 months per year.
