Navigate Through the
STEP America Application Process

The EB-5 Process At a Glance

STEP will assist in certifying the documentation necessary for an EB-5 petition. The lawful source of investment funds needs to be clearly substantiated with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Office, and in many cases, is the pivotal issue that could determine whether an application is approved or denied. To ensure the success of the entire process, STEP also works with its foreign national clients on filing the application for conditional permanent residency, preparing clients for the consular interview and adjustment of status upon approval, the condition removal petition, and ultimately, where requested, an application for naturalization for U.S. Citizenship.
