When can I apply for US citizenship?

An EB-5 investor can apply for U.S. citizenship after being a Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) for at least five years, with the 2-year Conditional Permanent Residency (CPR) period counting towards this requirement. In other words, five years since receiving your Conditional Green Card.


To be eligible for naturalization, the investor must be at least 18 years old, have continuous residence and physical presence in the U.S., and be able to read, write, and speak basic English. They must also demonstrate good moral character, knowledge of U.S. history and government, adherence to the principles of the U.S. Constitution, and willingness to take the Oath of Allegiance.


EB-5 investors should generally avoid staying outside the U.S. for more than 180 days in any year without prior legal consultation. Meeting these naturalization requirements can vary based on individual circumstances, so it’s advisable for EB-5 investors to seek legal advice from an immigration lawyer.
