EB-5 Investment Visas

If you are interested in making an investment to secure a green card, Mintz Levin’s Immigration attorneys can take you through the process from wherever you are located. As a leading firm for EB-5 investors, we have a track record of success helping individuals whose home countries have complicated currency export laws. 

Our attorneys are prepared to guide you, no matter how complex your case is. In addition to preparing your EB-5 petition, Mintz Levin can provide you with close guidance when securing an immigrant visa at a consulate or embassy abroad. We also assist immigrant investors with petitions to remove conditions on their US immigration status. If you are from a country subject to sanctions or currency controls, we can help you obtain a clearance for your EB-5 investment from the Office of Foreign Assets Control.
