By law, each source of funds is supposed to be documented and traceable particularly to avoid a violation of the law regarding money laundering. Also, make sure all transactions from Argentina did not violate Argentine laws, otherwise, the USCIS may deny the application and treat the funds as being from unlawful source(s). Advisably, consult an EB-5 attorney to ensure all legal procedures are followed before proceeding with your EB-5 investment plan.

USCIS will need evidence of the transfer of the funds, even when using intermediaries. Bank statements or transfer confirmations may be enough. Please consider retaining an EB-5 attorney with experience in complex source of funds matters.

Even if the country has exchange limitation, the transfer to third party should be tracked through family and friends accounts instead of using these so-called money agents as USCIS has intimated that this is illegal activity.
