At GCF we simplify the investment process.
Step 2: Complete our easy online Investor Questionnaire.
Step 3: Once qualified, GCF will provide you with detailed offering materials that outline the immigrant investor program, our regional center, and our current project opportunities.
Step 4: Contact us regarding our projects, questions you may have, or to arrange a meeting. Meetings are informal question and answer sessions where you can learn more about Green Card Fund’s projects as well the EB-5 process in general and the particulars of your specific immigration case.
Step 5: Seek professional investment advice (if applicable) and enlist the help of experienced immigration counsel.
Step 6: Once you select a qualifying investment, you will sign a subscription agreement to enter into a limited partnership specific to your chosen project. According to USCIS policy, your EB-5 visa application may not be submitted until your investment is fully funded. To expedite your immigration process and enable your I-526 petition to be prepared and submitted - investors must deposit the investment capital ($500,000 or $1,000,000) and administrative fee with the escrow agent outlined in the project offering documents. Investment amounts will be released to the designated limited partnership upon the approval of your immigration application or directly back to you in the event your immigration application is denied.
If you wish to secure your place as an EB-5 investor in a specific property you may do so with a deposit of the $55,000 administrative fee. This will secure your place for up to 90 days, during which time you must fund the balance of investment capital in order to file your EB-5 application with the USCIS.
The General Partner (GCF) will give priority to qualifying investors in the order that their respective investments are received. Capital investments will be returned in the event of an over-subscription.
Accredited Investor Requirements
An accredited investor is a term defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that describes investors permitted to invest in certain types of higher-risk investments, limited partnerships and private placements.
In the U.S. an individual is considered to be an accredited investor if he or she has a net worth of at least $1 million USD or has made at least $200,000 USD each year for the last two years ($300,000 with spouse if married) and has the expectation to make the same amount in the current year.
