Fredrick W VoigtmannImmigration Attorney
You must provide evidence that it is more likely than not your invested capital was lawfully obtained. If you do not have primary evidence (official documentation), then you will need to provide secondary evidence such as affidavits, bank statements, or other specific information about the inheritance. A bank letter verifying your high balance will not be sufficient because it does not identify the actual source of your funds. Also, keep in mind that the new rule that becomes effective 11/21/2019 requires a $900,000 minimum investment (and placed new requirements and restrictions on TEA designations), so if you are planning on making an EB-5 investment under the existing rules, you should act quickly.
