Can I get a loan to invest for EB5 visa

I am Indian, doomed because of the ridiculous wait time for EB2 visa.

Seems like going for EB5 is my only option for green card (don’t wanna take the marriage route). I don’t have the money though.

I have like 250k, is it possible to get a loan for the remaining amount ?

It may sound ridiculous, but just wondering 🤣

    You are doomed because of the way you think and not because of the immigration laws. Even I am on H1b and waiting on EB2 but won't complain as we must abide by the rules of the land where we live. Don't like the rules? Many other countries will welcome with open hands. :)

      India. Got my GC in early 90s. Back then they’d give you a green card if you could spell UNIX.
      I cannot even fathom what you guys are going through and generally urge my younger relatives not to even bother coming here.

      You don’t need an office home boy. Get a good Internet connection. Visit the office for a week every month.
      Remaining 3 weeks/month work out of your home and bang hot senoritas during time off.

      During the process of getting my GC I also managed to date my immigration lawyer. Hot milfy chick. Never got further than second base though unfortunately.

    EB5 still too slow. I think the wait for Chinese is like 10+ years, not sure about Indians. Not worth 500K IMO.

    Become a manager and get EB1 is your only chance.

    Or just buy a house and enjoy life and forget about that BS.

    I believe loans are no longer allowed funding sources. It used to be the case before but not in recent years.

    If someone could "give" you that money though, that's something which may work

    Go to Canada for a year as a manager, come back and apply eb1c. Faster you make this happen the better. Cause this option is gaining steam and soon there might be huge backlog there too. Plus you can port eb2 priority date into eb1c.

      Well my priority date is locked with EB2, so I can use it anytime I guess
      Mar 20
    • Amazon antman
      Yes you can. Eb1c has also started getting backlogged. So if you don’t do it now, story will just repeat

      OP
      The thing is backlog won’t really affect me with EB1 as my priority date is in 2015.

      And India’s EB1 is already current for 2016.

      So there’s no need to hurry

      You can make another 250k in 2.5 years I guess

      The wait time is growing exponentially for India

      So in 3 years, it will be the same as EB2

      Canada is too cold, salaries are much lower, it’s more expensive to live there, real estate is super expensive due to Chinese investors

      Otherwise, I would have moved their happily

    • Hit the nail on the head. Lot of people go to Canada thinking it’s a magical welcoming place. Read between the lines!

    Why don't you take your money and invest in India instead. I can imagine 250k would get you 10 developers easily for 2 years.
