What is DS-260?

DS-260 application allows an investor and their dependents to commence their residency on the Conditional EB-5 Visa Green Card. Form DS-260 is also known as “Immigrant Visa Electronic Application” and is filed online.

USA Investor Visa applicants who are not already in the United States upon approval of their I-526 form have to file the DS-260 application to obtain the conditional permanent residency status during the visa process. It can be filed by EB-5 applicants or by an Immigration Attorney at a U.S. consulate or embassy abroad. It requires an interview at the U.S. consulate or embassy. Depending upon your consulate, once NVC/consulate receives all required documents, usually NVC/Consulate will schedule an interview within 60 to 90 days, if the priority date is current.

The conditional permanent residency status is given to applicants after their DS-260 is approved. Visa applicants are required to provide biographical information on the DS-260 application. The applicant may be required to bring documentation, such as marriage certificates, long form birth certificates and passports to their DS-260 interview. Separate DS-260 applications must be filed for each family member who will accompany the EB-5 investor to the United States to become permanent residents. Here’s a sample for DS-260 application.
