No, speaking English is not a requirement for any potential foreign investor interested in applying for the EB-5 Visa Category program. Those interested in applying, however, should consult an English speaking legal counsel who specializes in immigration law before contacting USCIS. This counsel can help translate all requirements and needs of the EB-5 program. This counsel can also help translate all documentation to English, one of the EB-5 program requirements. When the investor is going through the application process, USCIS will provided translation services if the applicant does not have one available.
