    It really depends on Regional Center by Regional Center. This is NOT a general question to answer. You need to talk to your attorney and the answer could be provided after you select your Regional Center. Usually, there is no return on $500,000. If you want control of your investment and want to make return on it you would need to invest $1,000,000.

    Most Regional Centers have an exit strategy in place. This strategy generally allows for the return of the investment on or about 5 years from the investment date. It is important to note that these investments are at-risk investments and the return of the investment is not a guarantee.

    Depending on the project, there usually is a return on the investment; it is usually smaller; your money is "at risk" which means you may not receive your entire principal back at the end of the process; your money would have to be invested in a given Regional Project for a minimum of five years. I''ll be happy to further discuss this with you and may be reached directly at my phone number.

    Assuming you''re talking about investing in a regional center, these issues are completely dependent upon the regional center you choose. Generally funds are returned in 4-6 years, give or take a bit. As for the return being offered, that varies too. Most centers pay in the range of 0.5-1.0% per annum, although some projects pay more (maybe 3-5%). However, those are usually structured differently with the investor bearing a bit more risk in return for the higher rate. All of these are reasons why your choice of a regional center is very critical for a successful EB-5 investment.

    Not all investments get a return and those that do get a minimal return. There are however some that give a reasonable return. By US law the investment must be at "risk" There is always a possibility of losing all or a part of the capital invested. By doing due diligence you will decrease the chances of investing in a project that may fail.

    Most of the good Regional centers have a low investment returns, usually 1-2%. Some other less reputable ones brag higher return. However, the EB-5 investment program requires that the investment must be at risk. Thus, no regional center could guarantee any specific return on investment nor guarantee that the principal amount be returned at specific time. Nevertheless, good regional centers with proven track record should give you an idea of how much the annual interest income could be and if they had returned any investments to their investors.

    Most EB-5 regional center projects plan to give the foreign national investor an annual distribution. Also, many EB-5 regional center projects allow an exit strategy for the foreign national investor in which the foreign national investor would receive the $500,000 back often in 3.5 years to 6 years depending on the specific circumstances.

    Most Regional Center projects envision a five-year return of capital, the terms of which are general elucidated in their offering documents.

    Thank you for your question. Depending how the regional center does, you may get some ROI. However, no regional center is allowed to guarantee you any ROI or the return of the investment itself. It is precisely for that risk of losing your money that you will be (hopefully) getting your permanent resident status. Invest wisely.
