[Q] Do all Regional Centers require that the investment fund be deposited into an escrow, and when is the release date?


[Q] Do all regional centers require that the investment amount be deposited into a designated escrow account, and when is the release date of such fund to the new commercial enterprise entity?

Probably yes, because this is designed to protection to EB-5 investors and at the same time hold the funds in a designated escrow account until it has been demonstrated to be of lawful source through I-526 petition approval.

The release date may vary according to regional centers. Most require the release after the approval of I-526 petition, to be safe, because this date is a balance between the need to wire the money as soon as possible to help the EB-5 project, and also to make sure that EB-5 investor will be protected.
