EB-5 FAQ’s

  • 1. What are the requirements regarding the funds used for EB-5 investments?
    To receive a conditional green card, investors must prove that they legally obtained all funds used for an EB-5 investment. Funds may come from legal business, salary, investments, property sales, inheritance, gifts, loans, or other lawful means.
  • 2. Are investors required to speak English?
    No. There are no language requirements for investors or their family members. In order to read our offering documents and marketing materials, it may be necessary for investors to hire a professional translator. Please contact our office for more information.
  • 3. Do investors need to have business experience or education?
    No. While business experience and education may be beneficial, they are not required.
  • 4. Are there any fees in addition to the investment?
    Additional fees include an administrative fee to the Regional Center, fees charged by immigration attorney, and fees charged by the USCIS.
  • 5. Where should investors send the funds for their investment?
    Investors wire funds directly into an escrow account. By placing them in the account, the investor agrees to release the funds once the petition is filed, if and when the developer needs the funds for construction.
  • 6. If an investor’s I-526 petition or visa is denied, will funds be returned?
    We make the best effort to refund the full investment amount as quickly as possible. EB5 Capital maintains a refund policy. Please request a copy at the time of investment review.
  • 7. Are EB-5 investments guaranteed?
    No. USCIS forbids redemptions or guarantees for EB-5 investors. The investment must be “at risk”, as described in our offering memorandum.
  • 8. What are the investor’s financial risks?
    The risks vary depending on the project. In general, EB-5 investor risks include:
    Fluctuations of economic conditions
    Risks inherent in the real estate market
    Statutory changes
    Risks associated with a private offering
  • 9. How is the limited partnership structured?
    Every investment “fund” is a new commercial enterprise, and the investor is a member. An affiliate of Woodmont Regional Center serves as the General Partner and manages the everyday affairs of the limited partnership.
