Register on the GCFRC web site by completing the Verify Your Eligibility Form. All potential investors are also encouraged to visit the development site and inspect the project first hand.
Upon approval of the Registration Form, a confidential private placement memorandum will be sent to accredited investors who are non-U.S. persons. It provides important information about the potential investment. For a place on the prospective investors list, the investor will be required to review, sign and deliver specified subscription documents described in the applicable confidential private placement memorandum and make an initial refundable deposit of US$60,000, as well as meet other criteria we may establish from time to time.
If the subscription is accepted, the remaining $800,000 is due within 15 days.
Once the remaining $800,000 is received, we will proceed with the investor’s I-526E petition. We will send the Investor Questionnaire and Investor Document Binder, allowing him/her to begin collecting the necessary paperwork. The investor will provide legal counsel with all requested documents, including completed Investor Questionnaire, Source of Funds, Tax Returns, and Certificates. The investor must retain independent legal counsel to act on his/her behalf, but project documents filed with the USCIS, other relevant documentation and the application process will be filed by the Regional Center’s designated legal counsel unless otherwise requested by the investor.
Once all documentation is received, counsel will file Form I-526E Petition for Immigrant Investor with the USCIS. The petition will request the USCIS certify the applicant as eligible for EB-5 status. The application process detailed above is for general information and guidance only. Actual procedures will vary according to individual circumstances. Eligible applicants who are lawfully present in the United States may be able to concurrently file green card applications (Applications for Adjustment of Status).
Upon approval of the I-526 Petition, applicants outside the U.S must file visa applications and await notification from the U.S. Consulate in his/her home country and prepare documents for the visa interview. The purpose of the consular interview is to verify the applicant’s identity and confirm he/she has not committed any criminal acts or misconduct or is otherwise legally ineligible to come to the U.S. The application process detailed above is for general information and guidance only. Actual procedures will vary according to individual circumstances
