Can someone with no employment history apply for an EB-5 Visa using gifted funds?

A foreign national may apply for an EB-5 Visa using gifted funds, in part or in whole, as long as the gift is accompanied by lawful source of funds documentation and a deed of gift proving the funds do, in fact, belong to the investor. Employment history and/or management experience are not required by the EB-5 Program—though for direct EB-5 investments, business experience may play an important role in meeting the program’s employment creation requirement. Also, because regional center investments generally require investors to be accredited, any EB-5 investor with no employment history whose investment is based solely on a gift may need to consult securities counsel to determine whether a regional center investment is possible.
