Group 13 Investors Have Received EAD Cards & Advance Paroles

Many ARCFE investors (including Group 13 38th Ave/Thomson Project) and their families who filed concurrently has successfully received their EAD cards and Advance Parole documents. EB-5 concurrent filing is a process within the EB-5 investment immigration program that allows investors and their dependents to simultaneously submit their Form I-526E (“Immigrant Petition by Regional Center Investor”) and Form I-485 application along with Form I-765 and Form I-131. This streamlined approached enables investors and their dependents to legally live, study, work in the U.S., and re-enter the U.S. without having to apply for additional visas, while waiting for their I-526E petition to be approved. Concurrent filing provides a more efficient route towards obtaining a green card in the U.S.
