Can E-2 Enterprise investment count toward EB5 capital investment requirement

Asked over 1 year ago - Dallas, TX

I would like to know if an E-2 enterprise capital investment would count towards EB5 capital investment requirement. If an E-2 visa holder already in the US decide to apply for EB5, would the initial capital investment in an E-2 enterprise count toward the $500K investment requirement for EB5. The scenario here is that the E-2 qualifying enterprise is not located in low unemployment target area. Thanks in advance for your contribution.
