Investor visa application process
EB-5 Visa: As a part of the application process, you need to first submit Form I-526. Further, your application needs to be backed up by relevant documents presenting that you’ve invested or are in the process of investing your capital into the enterprise. Once done, you need to transfer the sum to an escrow account from where the release of funds is conditional on I-526 adjustment and approval of status or visa issuance. Evidence of mere intent to invest at a later date is insufficient.
E2 Visa: To file for an E2 visa, you need to fill the Form I-129, backed by relevant proof to present that you have or are looking forward to investing in a business.
However, to be an applicant under the E2 visa category, you need to be a national of a country that has an E2 treaty with the United States.
Your E2 business must be an active, for-profit business, with investments secured via lawful sources.
Investor Parole: Entrepreneurs applying for the Investor Parole visa program need to have their Form I-941 Application for Entrepreneur Parole duly filed with USCIS. Once their application is approved, they can then obtain the necessary travel documents from their foreign consulate.
