    No, the full minimum capital amount must be made available to the project for project development activities.

    Attorney fees are not considered to be part of the investment amount needed for an EB-5 visa.

    No. Attorney fees and any regional center administration fees paid by the investor do not count towards their EB-5 investment total.

    The foreign national must invest the minimum EB-5 investment amount in a "new commercial enterprise" as defined in the pertinent federal regulations. As a result, attorney''s fees paid by the foreign national cannot be counted toward the minimum investment amount.
