How much valuables can an EB-5 investor bring to the United States?

Is there a limit on how much precious stones, hard cash in the form of USD, and other valuables an EB-5 investor can bring from his country when arriving in the United States for conditional permanent residency after I-526 approval? If so, how much?

    There is no limit to what you can bring with you to settle in the United States. However, be aware that there is a need to avoid any presumption of money laundering from the country you are coming from.

    While it is best to discuss with a customs lawyer, my understanding is there is no restriction on how much cash or precious stones a permanent resident can bring; however, the person MUST fully disclose this on Form 6059B, and they will be sent to secondary inspection to explain why and where the money came from.

    There is no limitation on the amount of valuables, be it jewelry or cash, that you can bring to the United States. However, you must declare any amount greater than $10,000.

    There is no limit to the funds or personal property which can be brought into the United States. However, it is important that it be declared accurately to Customs and Border Protection.

    I am not aware of any such limit. However, your country of origin may indeed limit what you can remove.
