Can I use money from an inheritance to fund my EB-5 investment?

Yes, but it will require filing a few additional documents. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service allows investments to be made with capital from an inheritance, but in order to do this, you will have to provide the following forms of evidence along with your EB-5 immigration application:

  • A copy of the benefactor’s death certificate 
  • A document clarifying the relationship between the investor and the deceased
  • A receipt outlining the total amount of the investor’s inheritance
  • A record of the transmission of inherited funds from the deceased to the investor
  • Proof of payment of any inheritance tax

In some cases, such as if the deceased and the investor were not directly related, it can be difficult to explain the nature of the inheritance. In these instances, Immigration Services may ask you to provide an additional statement to thoroughly clarify your relationship with the deceased and the circumstances surrounding the inheritance.

At the Law Offices of Vaughan de Kirby, our trusted EB-5 green card lawyers can help you prepare your application and answer any questions you may have about the investment process, improving your chances of getting your application approved.
