Background: The EB-5 Program and Its Benefits
In 1990, the U.S. government created the EB-5 immigrant investor visa category (“Green
Card”) as part of the Immigration Act. This new category was created in the hopes of
attracting foreign immigrant investment to the U.S. and, in the process, creating new jobs for
American workers. One of the application requirements to obtain an EB-5 visa, is that an
immigrant invest $500,000 in a “Federally Designated Regional Center”. One such center is
the “Victorville Regional Center” located in Southern California.
The benefits of the EB-5 program are as follows:

All legal Green Card holders under the EB-5 Investor Program enjoy the same benefits as
every other United States resident.

The U.S. is a safe harbor for the investor, the investor’s family as well as the investor’s
business investments. Any qualifying member of the investor’s family with an “EB-5 Visa”
can enter the U.S. at any time and stay as long as he or she wishes.
Investors may come to the United States for personal or business purposes any time.

EB-5 Green Card holders can travel to the U.S. without the need for applying for a visa at a
US Consulate or Embassy. They may work, live, or own their property or businesses
anywhere in the United States.

The U.S. has internationally recognized colleges and universities, graduate or post-graduate.
As a Green Card holder, the investor may benefit from lower tuition costs.

The cost of living in the U.S. is less than most large industrial nations. Housing costs are
significantly lower, and consumer goods and services are generally less expensive than
comparable services and goods in many other western countries.

Students may work in the U.S. while attending college and university, and continuing
graduate and postgraduate studies.

The U.S. provides public schools, health and medical attention, social security, and other
social programs.

The EB-5 Investor has the ability to bring other qualified family members to the U.S. after
proper application, and can obtain U.S. Citizenship after 5 years.

The EB-5 Application Process

1. The investor chooses the Victorville Regional Center program and signs the Subscription
Agreement, the Limited Partnership Agreement, the Escrow agreement, and deposits US
$550,000 into the escrow account.

2. Legal Counsel submits Immigrant Petition (I-526).

3. Upon approval of I-526, the Department of State issues an Investment Packet for
Immigration Visa Application which contains information and forms for investor completion
prior to scheduling a visa interview.

4. The investor is notified of U.S. Consulate Interview date and receives Appointment
Package for Immigration Visa Applicants. Medical examination is required.

5. U. S. Consulate Interview. Conditional Visa is granted usually at the time of the interview.

6. Immigrants enter the U.S. within 180 days after visa approval.

7. 21-24 months after U.S. entry, legal counsel files application for removal of conditions on
visa (I-829).

8. The conditional status of the visa is removed and permanent residency is granted.

The Victorville Regional Center EB-5 Program
The Victorville Regional Center was carefully designed by Paul W. Virtue to meet the EB-5
Visa requirements under the Immigration Act and Regulations. Mr. Virtue is a partner at
Hogan & Hartson, Wash. D.C., and is a former Executive Associate Commissioner, Office of
Program, and General Counsel, to the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (USINS).
All funds invested are reinvested with government agencies and as a result, the government
agencies are the responsible parties to repay the investment. Nearly all the government
agencies are joint power authorities with the City of Victorville as participants. They have the
power to issue bonds and receive tax increment financing, making the Victorville Regional
Center a very attractive investment.
Inland Development Group I, Inc. serves as the General Partner of the investment
partnership. Under the Advisory Agreement, the General Partner reviews and analyzes all
investment projects in the Victorville Regional Center to determine if they meet the tough
criteria and stated objectives for its investments.
The Subscription Price is $550,000 (including a syndication fee of $50,000); $500,000 will
be loaned to governmental entities for 5 years with interest at 5% per year.
Half of the annually paid interest will be distributed to the investor with the remaining half
allocated to the General Partner.
The loan will be made on an individually Ear-Marked basis, which means that the investor
can start the Five Year Term Loan without having to wait for other investors who may need
more time to file the I-526 petitions for conditional green cards. After the completion of the
investor’s Five Year Term Loan, the City will repay the
loan, and the investor may redeem the investment with the repaid money, again without
having to wait for other investors who might need additional time for the I-829 petitions to
remove the conditions or to change status.
The investor must decide to make any EB-5 Visa Program investment with the full
knowledge that there is “No Guarantee” that its EB-5 Visa card application will be approved
by USCIS, and that there is “No Guarantee” that the invested money will be returned in full
or even in part. It is required to be “Investment at Risk.” Further, the investment must remain
"At Risk" throughout the EB-5 Green Card process and thereafter. If the investor borrows the
investment principle, it may not use its partnership interest as security for the loan. The investor
can, however, use other assets as security or guarantors unrelated to the investment.
If, with full knowledge of this risk, the investor still decides to make the $500,000 investment
in the Victorville Regional Center then, the United States government will give the investor
an opportunity to apply for and obtain a Green Card, again without any guarantee. We feel
that this is an outstanding opportunity for investors such as your clients who are interested in
obtaining residency in the United States.
We hope that this letter is useful to you in your efforts abroad. Should you need any further
information, we stand prepared to assist you in any way we can.
William Buck Johns, President
Inland Development Group I, Inc.
