In 1991 the U.S. The U.S. Congress created the fifth employment-based preference (EB-5) immigrant visa category, and Regional Centers came about soon after in 1993. The initial development of the program resulted in frequent fraudulent investment ventures from those applying for the program.

12. IF I AM CURRENTLY LIVING IN THE UNITED STATES WITH AN OUT-OF-STATE STATUS, I.E. HAVE A TEMPORARY GREEN CARD, CAN I STILL APPLY?

People with out-of-state status are not able to apply for permanent residency status while in the United States. When a foreigner has out-of-state status, the individual is only permitted to stay within United States boundaries for their allotted time. Visas must be valid when the foreigner needs to at the time of entry to the U.S. If the person desires and extension on the 1-94, they can use the Form 1-94.
