EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program, also known as the Employment-Based Fifth Preference Visa, is an opportunity not only to invest money in United States capital projects, but most importantly, to obtain a green card (permanent residency) for you and your family. Applying for permanent residency through the EB-5 Program provides great benefits because there are no country limits or sponsor requirements. Furthermore, for Chinese and Indian nationals, the processing time is significantly less than other immigration applications and categories.
Whether your parents are living in the United States or abroad, there are ways to sponsor your mother and father for a Green Card (also known as legal permanent residency). Parents are considered "Immediate Relatives," which is a preferred category according to United States immigration agencies. In other words, the processing times for a parent's Green Card application is significantly faster than other preference categories such as a sibling's application.
