EB-5 Visa: To pool or not to pool

The EB-5 Visa now allows investors to pool their money together in order to receive U.S. Immigration Permanent Visa benefits.

On July 12, 2022, USCIS posted an updated revision for Form I-526, Immigrant Petition by Alien Entrepreneur, accommodates the mandates contained in the recently passed EB-5 Reform and Integrity Act of 2022 (RIA). The new forms are each tailored to accommodate the different eligibility requirements of the two different types of EB-5 visa programs: EB-5 Standalone Investor Cases and EB-5 Regional Center Investor Cases.

New I-526 Petition for EB-5 Standalone Investor Cases

The new Form I-526, Immigrant Petition by Standalone Investor, must be used by standalone immigrant investors who are not seeking to pool their investment with additional investors seeking EB-5 classification.  It is very important to have an attorney guide you through the benefits and drawbacks of pooling your investment with other foreign investors versus the stand alone EB-5 visa where one investor retains all control making it easier to get the conditions released of your 2 year conditional resident Green Card.
