Stop wrestling with visa renewals, sponsorship, and lotteries!  


The United States has long been the top hosting country for international students, who historically have been drawn by the high quality of US higher education, its value on the international labor market, and access to job opportunities in the United States after graduation.


Individuals studying in the US are increasingly seeking a more permanent route to living and working in the country, as a US Green Card may avoid some challenges international students face in the US and even open doors to new opportunities as permanent residents.


The EB-5 visa may be the ideal solution for both international students and professionals living in the United States who look to have more certainty and opportunities in their path without depending on employer sponsorship.  


LCR Capital Partners is the ideal partner for individuals and families interested in permanent residency in the US. Please don't hesitate to contact us to learn more.

The EB-5 Visa allows you to receive an Employment Authorization Document (EAD)

The EB-5 Reform and Integrity Act 2022 allows EB-5 applicants who live in the US with a current valid visa to file for Concurrent Adjustment of Status, allowing them to remain in the US and obtain an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) while waiting for their EB-5 visa approval.

  • For international students, this means being able to work as soon as the EAD is received and avoiding the OPT process.
  • H-1B visa holders can have more freedom to look for the best work opportunity and not necessarily rely on employer sponsorship.

What is the EB-5 visa? 

The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program is a US federal program that allows qualified investors and their immediate families to obtain permanent residency (Green Card) by making an $800,000 investment in the US, typically over 4-7 years,  that creates jobs in the American economy.

A Green Card holder is considered a permanent resident and has many advantages over other international students and  professionals:

Higher college acceptance rates: avoid international students quotas at competitive universities
Lower tuition rates: be eligible for in-state tuition rates that are typically half on a third of full tuition rates

Access to merit-based scholarships and students loans: obtain selective scholarships that are not available to international students without a green card

Full access to on campus recruiting: professional employment opportunities (internships and full-time) are limited for students needing sponsorships

The EB-5 visa is based on an investment but this marketing presentation and event do not constitute an offer to sell securities.  If you are interested in seeing project investment documents, we ask you to contact LCR directly so we can confirm you are an accredited investor or the equivalent in your market. We can also then focus the conversation on your individual or family needs. And, while we will be discussing areas of immigration law, none of the conversation or Q&A can be considered legal advice.  You will need to reach out to an immigration attorney and enter a client-attorney relationship to receive legal advice.
