Removal of Conditions

Under the EB-5 provisions, an investor and his family dependents are initially granted LPR status on a conditional basis. During the three-month window prior to the second anniversary of becoming a conditional resident, the investor will need to file a Form I-829, Petition to Remove Conditions. Documents submitted with the I-829 petition must show that the required capital was invested as planned, the investment was maintained throughout the two years, and the enterprise has satisfied the job-creation requirements of the law. I-829 adjudication times typically run from six months to one year.
