It sounds like you should arrange a consultation with our law firm to discuss your EB-5 interest and options! Briefly, you will have to organize your business to comply with USCIS regulations, create compliant and required documentation, and also consider the marketability of the project to foreign investors. EB-5 funding often comes with a lower interest rate and the foreign investors are not as “active” as other investors can be. Having your own regional center can allow you to use your project and have other projects pay you for using your Regional Center designation. Buying one may be expensive but you will not have to wait for initial designation from USCIS, instead just an amendment for the change in ownership. Renting one may cost you but if you’re just looking to fund one project you can get started more quickly.
To begin, you first must retain the services of an experienced EB-5 Attorney. If you have your own Regional Center you will not have to pay rental fees per investor. Because of the long time delays in obtaining designation as a RC it may be more cost effective to rent a Regional Center and associate an actual project for immediate EB-5 funding.
