Why should I care about the EB-5 visa if I’m already on a H1B/B1/L1/F1 or if my employer has sponsored me for the EB-2?While those visa options can usually result in a faster entry to the United States, they are all nonimmigrant visas and require renewals every few years, which may require additional investment or documentation from the applicant. In comparison, the EB-5 visa is an immigrant visa which helps Indian investors get a conditional green card within 2-3 years after investing. EB-5 investors are eligible to get their permanent green cards and their money back after completing the 2 years of conditional residency. The total process takes about 5 years.As most H-1B holders are well aware, the EB-2 preference category is severely backlogged for Indian applicants, as are many of the other employment-based categories. For many H-1B visa holders with EB-2 employer sponsorship, the EB-5 preference category may present a faster option as there is currently no backlog for Indian applicants. However, due to the increasing popularity of the program, this category will likely become backlogged in the future.
