Free EB-5 Evaluation

Can funds for an EB-5 investment begifted from someone outside the U.S. to someone in the U.S.?

A foreign national living in the U.S. can be gifted funds from someone outside the U.S. as long as the nation in which the benefactor lives allows such transfers. The key is that a lawful source of funds can be traced from its origin to the EB-5 investor. This means the investor must demonstrate both that the money was gained lawfully and that it was transferred into the EB-5 investor’s account lawfully.
