Can an EB-5 NCE be a limited partnership with the regional center as general partner?

We are submitting an exemplar application for a regional center. The regional center is an LLC, and we were thinking the NCE should be a L.P. with the regional center being the general partner. The EB-5 immigrant investor would become a L.P. partner with his (her) investment (put at risk), and the L.P., as an entity, would invest in distinct JCEs that would be separate LLCs. How does this sound?

    There are multiple ways to structure your entity relationships to qualify for EB-5 consideration. You should consult with an experienced EB-5 immigration attorney who can advise you on your regional center exemplar application.

    An LP may have the regional center as a GP.

    The EB-5 model you are proposing is EB-5 approvable.

    We would want to take a longer look at your proposed structure. We often see the regional center as a completely separate entity from the NCE, but would work closely with you on the legal and financial infrastructures to prepare an approvable application.
