While checking the track record and success history of an EB5 Regional Center is important, what matters most is making sure the specific project the EB5 investor is investing in has the capacity to pay back the capital and create the jobs for permanent residency. It is essential to bear in mind that it is the EB5 project which is paying back and creating the jobs, NOT the Regional Center. Similarly, the Regional Center’s team of advisors is worth looking into. EB5 investors should make sure the project documents were completed by reputable attorneys and economists in the field that are familiar with USCIS and the requirements of the EB5 program.

So how important is an EB5 Regional Center track record?   Not as important as you would think.
