The fact that the EB-5 project is a production company is not the problem. Our law firm has successfully represented several clients with production company EB-5 projects. For these projects to be EB-5 compliant and marketable they must have the correct legal and financial infrastructures.
From an Immigration standpoint only, investors may be concerned that the project may not create the required amount of jobs necessary to allow them to obtain an approval of the I-526 or the I-829 to remove conditions on their permanent residency. Investors may also be concerned with the history of the project principals, favoring projects helmed by people familiar and experienced with the particular business over new entries. From an investment standpoint, we would lead a team of professionals that could assist the project with marketability and EB-5 compliance.
