Free EB-5 Project Evaluation What kind of return on investment (ROI) can an EB-5 investor expect?

The rate of return will depend entirely on the specific details of the investment. While ROI cannot be guaranteed, investors in EB-5 projects that employ a loan-based model might earn 1–2%, while equity investors’ earnings will vary based upon the profitability of the enterprise. Because the primary purpose of an EB-5 investment is obtaining a Green Card, not making a profit, the main consideration of any EB-5 investor should be the immigration risk of a project, not its earning potential. A low-earning project that is safe from an immigration perspective is generally better than a project with a higher rate of return but greater immigration risk.
