The primary things to know about starting the investment process revolves around the completion of the initial investor qualification documents, paying any deposits, and completing the required USCIS documents. Assuming a non-US person investor meets all the initial investor qualification requirements a prospective non-US investor must pay an application fee to reserve their position in the investment and submit a completed Questionnaire. Upon acceptance of the Questionnaire an Offering Memorandum, Limited Partnership Agreement and Business Plan will then be provided to the investor, upon receipt of the initial deposit for respective project they are choosing to invest into. There is a period as stated in the Offering Memorandum allowed for due diligence. Additionally, during this period an investor must prepare and submit all the necessary documents as required by the USCIS. If the investor chooses to terminate the agreement within this review period, then the initial deposit may be FULLY refundable. The actual amount of the Initial Deposit is specific to each project Offering Memorandum, but is normally USD $50,000. A portion of the Application Fee and possibly a portion of the interest payment to the single purpose entity the investor is invested in may be reserved and used directly to maintain the operation of the Regional Center.
Qualified non-US investors will have the full details for each investment, time tables, fee structure, etc. provided within the Offering Memorandum, Limited Partnership Agreement and Business Plan. Please refer to these document and your independent financial and legal advisors before considering or making any investment. All investments are fully "at-risk", as required by the USCIS regulations.
