Stop wrestling with visa renewals, sponsorship, and lotteries!  

 

According to Migration Policy Institute, the United States has long been the top receiving 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.

 

International students are facing rising costs of US higher education, high numbers of visa delays and denials and instabilities due to political environment for immigrants. To avoid such instability, individuals increasingly seek a more permanent route to living and working in the US. A direct route to the green card is to obtain one of the employment-based, or EB, visas.  

 

The EB-5 program is 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.

File a concurrent adjustment of status and avoid OPT application process

International students who applied to the EB-5 program can file a concurrent adjustment of status and don’t need to go through the OPT application process. In addition, the EB-5 Reform and Integrity Act 2022 allows EB-5 applicants who live in the US with a current valid visa to apply for file for Concurrent Adjustment of Status, being able to remain in the United States and obtain an Employment Authorization Document (EAD). This means that H-1B visa holders can apply for a work permit, allowing them 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 by making an investment in the US that creates jobs. By investing $800,000 over 5-7 years, applicants can ask for a work permit while waiting for their conditional green cards (on average, within 24 to 36 months of the EB-5 visa application).

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.
