EB-5 Visa Application Funding Source
It's not simple to complete an EB-5 visa application, and even gathering the necessary paperwork might be difficult. You require an experienced lawyer who can assist you at every stage of the process because of this. Documentation of the source of your finances, which the government requires to confirm that your funds come from a legal source, is one particularly difficult stage. Depending on your source of funding, the documentation we initially advise you to provide is shown below.
