EB5 Regional Center Questions and Answers

Question: Is it possible that my regional center application may be fast-tracked by the USCIS in exchange for an elevated processing fee?

Attorney Lei Jiang: Not at this time, unfortunately.

Question: I have heard that sales or transfers of Regional Centers have been rejected or have gotten RFEs. I guess that the USCIS may be schizophrenic in their decision making. Has anyone done a deal like this recently? If so, would your firm be open to doing a sale or transfer?

Attorney Lei Jiang : USCIS will want to see that the buyer has the credibility in running a successfully RC. RFEs will likely to be issued.  To structure the sale, some ways are better than others. Please feel free to contact us.

Question: Hello. I currently have F1 visa and am studying at a university here in USA. I am seeking EB-5 through regional center projects. I do not have money myself and my parents will gift to me the whole amount. I am from China. But the question is I don’t know how they gonna prove lawful source of funds. My parents have a small factory and just doing a little business. Most of the money are saved from the profits of the business. They have stock as well, but the deposit money are coming from the business, too, but they have never filed taxes. Does this mean my parents money could be unlawful for EB5? I also find somebody saying about get a loan from the property could be a source, too. My parents have some property that they purchased 10 years ago, but they are saying it was too long ago and may not be able to. I hope I’ve asked my question clearly enough. Thank you.

Attorney Lei Jiang: There are other legitimate ways to produce required documents.  Also the money can come from bank loan using real properties as collateral.
