How can a regional center legally pay foreign migration agencies?
It seems likely that an EB-5 investor will come to a regional center via a foreign migration agency. However, since the investor funds will likely be in escrow until I-526 approval, at what point in the process is it typical for the foreign migration agency to be paid? What restrictions are there on paying foreign migration agencies who subscribe EB-5 investors?
The S.E.C.regulationsgovern the legal circumstances on how and when foreign migration agents can be paid finders fees by the Issuer. The agreement between the agent and the issuer will determine when and how the finders fees will be paid.
