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.

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