Grounds of Inadmissibility
Like all prospective immigrants to the United States, EB-5 immigrants, when applying for an immigrant visa or adjustment of status, must answer a list of questions bearing on the numerous grounds of inadmissibility under U.S. law and undergo background checks and a medical examination.

Grounds of inadmissibility include certain conduct that may pose a risk to the public or violate the law such as:
- Certain criminal convictions for crimes against property or persons
- Health concerns, including lack of vaccinations or the presence of a certain communicable disease
- Visa status violations, including misrepresentations or overstays
- Membership in certain political organizations
Please see the U.S. Department of State’s Foreign Affairs Manual for detailed information regarding each ground of inadmissibility and the potential discretionary waivers that may be available.
