What Questions Should I Ask an EB-5 Regional Center Before I Invest?
We always stress to our clients to keep in mind that the EB-5 Visa is an employment based visa and typically should not be looked at for a high return on investment.
It is very important that for the foreign investor to receive USCIS approval of their petition that the project you invest into create a minimum of 10 jobs as a result of your investment within the EB-5 Regional Center. With this being said, we consider that one of the MOST important question to ask a Regional Center is how the project plans to create the required permanent jobs.
While this is of course not the only question that must be asked we feel it is critical to get a clear understanding of how the jobs will be created by the project and how realistic the expectations of the business will be as far as operations, success and in the return of your investment capital. With the success of working with more than 160 individuals from 23 different countries and more than 30 Regional Center projects the professionals at Exclusive Visas have the experience that will benefit you as a prospective EB-5 applicant in being able to get past the “sales pitch” of the Regional Center representative and make a more informed business decision on what EB-5 project will possibly be more suitable for you and your family.
Learning details about the experience of the project developer, budgets and cost of the business opportunity, capital contributions from the General Partners and possible government funding are all important questions that should be asked by you and your advisers prior to investment and need to also be independently verified.
Exclusive Visas has reviewed many details and offering documents on dozens of active EB-5 Projects in the market and our experienced team of attorneys, accountants, economists, financial professionals make it part of our regular practice to regularly visit the job sites of EB-5 projects and the Regional Centers that are responsible for these opportunities. One of our recent clients said it best, when they thanked us for “doing their homework for them”.
