How will over-staying a visa many years ago affect my chances to participate in the EB5 program?
I am a Mexican citizen, and about 26 years ago when I was 32, I over-stayed my visa and used the name of a friend, who is a U.S. citizen, to get a license to drive. I have heard that my EB-5 application would be denied for my actions all those years ago because that would be seen as impersonating a U.S. citizen,, which would be grounds for denial of my EB-5 application. How will my actions all those years ago impact my ability to participate in the EB-5 program? What options may be available to help me participate in the EB 5 program?
The first step would be to retain an experienced EB-5 and immigration attorney. Based on the facts you present you would not be granted US permanent residency. You may with the correct documentation apply for a temporary entry into the US but not permanent.
