Free EB-5 Evaluation

Can a foreign national borrow money from a U.S. bank to fund an EB-5 investment?

It is possible to use loaned funds for an EB-5 investment as long as the loan is secured by the investor’s personal assets other than his/her primary residence; the EB-5 project cannot be used as collateral. The location of the lender is not necessarily restricted—the main concern is that the funds can be traced to a lawful source —and so investors may secure loans from U.S. institutions.
