Under the EB5 rules, the immigrant’s capital can come from many different legal sources. For example, the funds can come from business ownership, sale of property, inheritance, gift, loan, or other sources.

Because there are some many ways to document lawful source of funds, there is no one specific formula or check list. Rather, the immigrant and his EB5 visa lawyer will simply use common sense when considering how best to document the lawful source of funds. Where funds are inherited, a will or trust forms are instructive. Where funds are earned from income on an investment, stock certificates, dividend letters, and account statements are vital. Where funds were earned from income on a previous business investment, the corporate tax returns for the business, complete with evidence of payouts to the owners, should be included.
