New York City Regional Center Reaches 4,600th Permanent Green Card Milestone1,587 I-829 petition approvals in New York City Regional Center offerings have now enabled over 4,600 individuals to achieve permanent residency in the United States

NEW YORK, Jan. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The New York City Regional Center ("NYCRC") is pleased to announce that over 4,600 individuals (EB-5 investors and family members) participating in its offerings have now achieved permanent residency in the United States.  A total of 1,587 I-829 petition approvals in NYCRC offerings to date have enabled 4,635 individuals to secure permanent green cards.  I-829 petition approvals have now been issued in the NYCRC's first nine project offerings.    

Permanent residency permits EB-5 investors to live and work anywhere in the United States and be protected by the laws of the United States.  An EB-5 investor's spouse and children under age 21 are also authorized to live, work, and attend school anywhere in the United States.

"Achieving over 4,600 permanent green cards and close to 1,600 I-829 approvals is the result of years of hard work on behalf of our investor families," said Paul Levinsohn, Managing Principal of the NYCRC.  "We know that EB-5 investors and their families put their trust in our ability to help them achieve permanent residency in the United States.  We take this responsibility seriously and are proud to announce these new milestones." 

Helping secure permanent residency in the United States for over 4,600 individuals represents the latest approval milestone for the NYCRC.  Other examples include conditional residency in the U.S. for over 5,550 EB-5 investors and family members and I-526 petition approvals for over 2,460 EB-5 investors.
