[Q] I am an Iranian national residing in another country. Can I pursue EB-5 case?
There is nothing in U.S. immigration law prohibiting Iranian national from applying for EB-5 case. If there is nothing under the laws of Iran prohibiting Iranian nationals from pursuing EB-5 avenue, then it could be done. However, we would not be surprised if EB-5 cases for Iranians were more strictly scrutinized to make sure all requirements have been satisfied, including lawful source element, ㅆhe U.S. governmental agencies are pretty sensitive about EB-5 investors not using any banks on the prohibited lists, and there appears to be such a prohibited list of banks not to use for Iranian EB-5 investors.
