Processing EB-5 Petitions at NVC

Last Updated: June 21, 2018

Email Processing required for EB-5 Petitions

As of June, 2018, all applicants filing an I-526 petition (EB-5) are required to process their visa petition electronically. NVC will need an email address for all applicants in order to communicate and receive applicable case information. To submit documents (supporting civil documents with translations and financial forms with accompanying evidence) to NVC, all visa applicants in the EB-5 category should scan and save them as a PDF file.   They should then submit their financial, civil, and supporting documents to NVC as attachments in one email package to Public Inquiry Form. Please type your case number in the subject line of the email. You can attach multiple PDFs to a single email, but each PDF can be no more than 5 MB (megabytes) in size. If you have more than one case number, use a different email message for each case. For more information, review our Document Scanning FAQs.

Customers with questions related to an approved I-526 petition should correspond with the National Visa Center (NVC) using the e-mail address: Public Inquiry Form.  

NVC will documentarily qualify the immigrant visa case and schedule an interview overseas.
