Can I get my investment back after getting an EB-5 visa?

I am waiting for my I-526 petition to get approved. It has been three years since I have transferred my money to the regional center. The jobs have already been created for more than 10 persons and been maintained for these three years. If I am granted a EB-5 visa, should I wait for another two years before getting my money back? The contract with the reginal center states than I can get the money back after three years from the date of investment.

    Check your subscription agreement and specifically the conditions related to exit strategies. In most cases, the preference and even more common process is that the investment fund is not usually returned until after the I-829 has been approved.
