What is the minimum cost to start an EB-5 regional center?

I am interested in starting an EB-5 regional center. Using the hypothetical model route, what is the estimated combined cost for all the attorneys that are needed to apply for regional center status? Other than the filing costs and attorney fees, does USCIS require the principals applying for a regional center to put up any more of their funds or to qualify financially before being approved?

    Cost may vary but, in general, it is around up to $100,000 for professional fees and costs in connection with the application for a regional center designation.

    You may be looking at up to $100,000 in professional fees and costs in applying for regional center designation. Financial support of the regional center entity itself is not required (as the designation is more like a license to participate in the program), but if you have any financial stake in any of the projects, that will need to be disclosed.

    Usually the entire package, including all costs, is about $85,000 to $100,000. To be done right.
