Hello, my name is***** & I will be the immigration attorney helping you today. I'm reviewing your question and will be with you in a few minutes.

Ask Your Own Immigration Law Question

I believe you are referring to the EB-5 investor visa. If you can invest at least $500,000 in a company in the US, there is a special green card program. You would also have to create 10 or more jobs for U.S. workers through this investment.

The only other ways that exist for a green card besides family or a company sponsor you would be:

1. applying for asylum.

You must prove that if you returned to your home country, you will be persecuted there on account of your religion, race, nationality, religion, or membership in a particular social group.

You would have to show that you would be persecuted for the reasons I listed. It has to be something that is happening only to you or a small group and not to the general population. You would have to apply for this within 1 year of entering the US.

2. The last way is through the diversity visa ( which is a lottery). Here is more information on that. http://www.uscis.gov/green-card/other-ways-get-green-card/green-card-through-diversity-immigration-visa-program/green-card-through-diversity-immigrant-visa-program

I'm sorry, I wish there were other options but I must be honest with you. Hope you can understand that I don't make the laws and I cant change them.

Good luck to you and I hope this answer has helped you.
