The EB-5 application process can be divided into three main stages:

1st Stage

You should submit the I-526 Petition form for an Alien Entrepreneur at US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

2nd Stage

After your approval by (USCIS), you must either

a) file an I-485 application to adjust your status to a lawful permanent resident if you are already in the USA. You and your family members should receive a Conditional Lawful Permanent Residence Visa (CLPR) which is valid for two years.

b) or apply for an immigrant visa at a US consulate or embassy outside of the United States.

3rd Stage

90 days before your CLPR expires, you must file an I-829 Petition by Entrepreneur to Remove Conditions of your application. Along with the I-829 form, you should provide evidence that you met the EB-5 conditions, such as investment in the enterprise and the creation of 10 full-time jobs as a result of your investment.

If all of the EB-5 Visa obligations have been met, you and your family dependants will receive unconditional Green Card visas, and will be allowed to permanently live and work in the United States.

60 months after you receive the Conditional Lawful Permanent Residence Visa (CLPR), you will be eligible for American Citizenship.
