EB-5 Investor Concurrent Filing and Adjustment of Status for H-1B / F-1 / E-2 Holders: Should I Adjust? What are the Pros/Cons?

Event Dates: March 17, 2022
Services: EB-5

One of the most significant changes brought by the March 14, 2022, EB-5 Reform Bill is the ability to file Form I-526 and Form I-485 at the same time (“EB-5 Concurrent Filing”). EB-5 Concurrent Filing allows EB-5 investors living in the United States on non-immigrant visas to apply for adjustment of status when filing their I-526 petitions. We expect that investors who filed their I-526 petitions before the EB-5 Reform Bill was enacted may also apply for adjustment of status prior to the adjudication of Form I-526.

What Is Adjustment of Status?

Form I-485 allows foreign nationals temporarily living in the United States to switch from one legal status to another. In the case of EB-5 Concurrent Filing, investors are expected to enjoy the benefits of lawful permanent resident status.
