Russian investors do not differ from any other foreign investor applying for EB-5. The source of funds must be documented in a reliable and comprehensive manner. The investor must be able to prove that the source of the investment funds are from lawful activities.

The regulations require that all EB-5 capital must be lawfully obtained. The regulations also include some examples of the types of documents that can be submitted to show the lawful source of the funds. For investors from certain countries, however, these documents are either not available or not reliable. An experienced EB-5 immigration attorney can help you with alternative and secondary pieces of evidence to meet this requirement. You should consult with such an attorney to advise you on the requirements for the source and path of the invested funds.

Source of funds is extremely important. We tell all our clients that we need to be able to document where the money came from. If there are restrictions on how much money can be transferred out of any country, you generally need to deal with authorities in their respective countries to ensure that you are able to transfer the money.

Russians must prove the same source of funds as everyone else. The tax system is not as easy but it is possible for Russians to use the EB-5 program.

I tell them the same thing I tell of my other EB-5 clients - you must document where the money is coming from. Lately, Russian EB-5 cases have become easier to document (as more and more people are now paying taxes and can demonstrate legitimate sources of funds). I am happy to talk to you in greater detail.
