The EB-5 investor does not have to be physically present in the United States to apply for an EB-5 Visa. Instead, you can apply from your home country and then enter the United States as a permanent resident after your application is approved.

It will be initially valid for two years and then you must file another application to remove its conditional status at least 90 days before it expires.
