I-526 petitions are most commonly rejected due to the applicant’s failure to demonstrate that investment funds were lawfully obtained, or for project-related issues.
Does rejection of I-526 affect the ability to apply for other types of US visas in the future?
No, it does not.
If the application is rejected, what is the procedure for a return of capital?
In the event of an unforeseen denial by USCIS, the offering documents for the investment will specify how funds are returned. These procedures are usually specified in the Limited Partnership Agreement and the Escrow Agreement.
