I just wanted to put out there that each EB5 center is authorized and licensed by the federal government and there are rules for investors and some boundaries on investment opportunities. So, in order to determine whether an EB5 Visa is right for you, I recommend that you determine that you qualify financially, consult with legal counsel to discuss the opportunity in more details. Establishing proof of funds is the first step.

Can two investors team up to make up the requisite capital investment of $500k? In addition, how long does it typically take to get a green card when participating in an EB5?

I'm not sure if you can "pool" your investment with others, but typically the processing times to get your green card varies. You should assume six months from the time your visa petition is filed with the USCIS until your Consular interview at the US Embassy, though this time is sometimes shorter.

-Processing of your I-526 petition at the California Processing Center: 3 months
-Processing at the National Visa Center, Washington DC and awaiting consulate interview: 3 months
-Total processing time to receive entry permit to collect green card: 6 months
-Assuming you emigrate four months after your Embassy interview Application for I-829 (removal of conditions) after entering the US 4 months: 21 months
-Removal of conditions processing 5 : months
-Total time after emigrating: 30 months

-Total processing time from initial application to removal of conditions: 36 months

Five years after entering the USA with your green card you and your immediate family may apply for US citizenship. You may elect to have dual citizenship.

Anyone know which EB5 centers offer loan based investments rather than the required investment based scheme?
