Note – You are welcome to attend this seminar on getting your Green Card fast using investment even if you are on a visa other than H-1B visa.

Dear Friend,

You are cordially invited to attend the Indian H-1B to EB-5 Seminar Dallas, June 19th from 3:30 – 7:00 pm. Find out how you can get your Green Card fast using EB-5. Get all your questions answered by many immigration attorneys and professionals. Have one-on-one interactions with immigration lawyers and professionals to understand ways of getting your Green Card fast especially as H-1Bs are under increasing attack.

Online research is not a substitute for attending this seminar in person because of US law; under American law, some information can only be shared face to face and not on a website. This seminar is a unique and rare opportunity to talk face to face with experienced immigration attorneys, and EB-5 projects to understand it thoroughly–with all your questions answered.
