How can I use money earned in the U.S. toward an EB-5 investment? I am in the United States on an H1-B visa and am considering applying for a visa through the EB-5 investment program. Do the funds need to come from my country of origin or can i use the money I have earned in U.S. to fund my application or project? What steps can I take or actions should I avoid if I want to use these funds for an EB-5 investment? I have tax records for the past four years.
The EB-5 regulations state clearly that the EB-5 investment has to be from personal funds regardless of where the funds were derived. That is, the personal investment funds can be derived from an authentic source in the home country or the U.S.
