Steps in Obtaining Your Green Card  

The process of obtaining a green card and permanent resident status through your investment in the SSRC can be broken down to the following 9 steps:

  • Step 1: The investor is given a Confidential Offering Memorandum describing in detail the proposed SSRC investment project.

  • Step 2: If interested in investing in the project, the investor signs the Subscription Agreement and other required documents.  The investor also deposits US$500,000 and an administrative fee into a federal government agency insured escrow account.

  • Step 3: The investor’s attorney prepares and files the I-526 Petition with USCIS.

  • Step 4: When the I-526 Petition is approved, the US$500,000 is unconditionally released from the escrow account and invested in the real estate project.

  • Step 5: Following approval of the I-526 Petition, the investor will be given a U.S. Consular Interview in the investor’s home country or if the investor resides in the U.S., receive an adjustment of status. Following the interview, the investor and family members enter the United States to receive a conditional green card.

  • Step 6: Upon receipt of the conditional green card, the investor and family are free to live anywhere in the United States with unrestricted travel and work rights.

  • Step 7: After two years, the investor’s attorney files an I-829 Petition to make the investor’s green card permanent, rather than “conditional.” The SSRC will assist the investor and his or her attorney in the preparation of the application.

  • Step 8: Upon approval of the I-829 Petition, the conditional status of the green card is removed and the investor’s green card is deemed permanent.

  • Step 9: After 5 years of issuance of the conditional green card (and maintaining the full investment in the SSRC investment project), the investor and family may apply for U.S. citizenship.
