1) Yes. You need to file Form 5472.
2) The tax return shows the balance sheet of the company. The Form 5472 is on the percentage of ownership and related parties for ownership.
The balance sheet of the company shows the equity of the owner, the foreign corporation.
Shareholder by definition investment money in the corporation. The form 5472 serves the purpose.
When you use Form 5472, the size of equity on the balance sheet shows the investment.
Money coming to the U.S. is much welcomed. The money going overseas is much more restricted in its reporting requirement in general.
There is nothing wrong with the E visa obtained by the investor. If they have E Visas, the U.S. government know about them and their role of investment already. The more the merrier from the U.S. government's viewpoint.
The IRS has a program to welcome international visitors coming here for investment purpose.
