    Depending on the professionals you engage and the amount of work involved, expect an expense tab between $150k and $200k in organizing a regional center. Advisably, right from the planning stage, engage an EB-5 immigration attorney to help you assemble your team of professionals.

    Costs can vary depending on whether you file a hypothetical project or an exemplar. Generally speaking, exemplar filings are more expensive and pose a higher burden on the RC applicant. A good rule of thumb is to expect to spend roughly $90k - $160k. This may or may not include costs associated with gathering supporting documents from 3rd parties (e.g. market studies). It also does not include the filing fee check.

    The most efficient and effective way to determine the cost of setting up a regional center is to seek the advice of an experienced and credible EB-5 attorney.

    Around $100,000 for the project filing, which will require an immigration attorney and a securities attorney. This does not include costs for marketing your project.

    These fees can vary, but are well worth it to obtain an approval with as few delays as possible. For an entire team of professionals like you describe, including a market analyst as well, the fees may be approximately $100,000. However, please note that many regional centers require investors to pay an administration fee in addition to their EB-5 investment to cover regional center administration costs.

    You should, depending on the nature of your project, expect to have $250,000 to $500,000 available.

    It is difficult to discuss fees because each case is different. It really depends upon how much work is needed and the scope of legal services. For a regional center application for designation, you should contact an experienced EB-5 immigration attorney directly to give you a quote for your particular situation.
