EB-5 Q&A: When does an EB-5 investor become a U.S. taxpayer


After the I-526 petition has been approved, the US Consulate will notify you of the date and time to come for an interview. Assuming approval at the interview, the US Consulate will have an EB-5 immigrant visa placed in your passport. Usually, the visa will be valid for six months during which period of time you may enter the US as a conditional lawful permanent resident. Upon entering, you must comply with all applicable tax requirements including, but not limited to, income tax.
