USCIS administers the federal EB-5 program, which allows a foreign investor to obtain a Green Card, or Conditional Permanent Residence, for an investment of $500,000 into an approved project that creates and sustains at least 10 jobs. Depending on the project and its terms, EB-5 investors can make this a loan-based passive investment and opt to receive their funds returned within 5 years with a small annual interest. EB-5 is a three-step procedure and the usual waiting period for application approval is 24-30 months.
Nysa has been appointed as the global representative for an EB-5 USCIS project with expedited processing. It is the only company in India to introduce a project that has received federal expedited status. People who have filed the application for EB-5 visa under this project, till date, have received application approval in less than 90 days. The last EB-5 family was approved in only 42 days. The Nysa project request for expedited processing was approved as this specific project has been determined by USCIS to be in the National Interest. There have only been a handful of EB-5 projects who have obtained this special status since the beginning of the program in 1990, and it will be offered to EB-5 investors for a limited time only. Expedited processing may well be the last opportunity for Indians to receive approval before expected retrogression comes into effect published as likely no later than July 2019.
