EB-5 Regional Center Program Temporarily Extended!

Posted on Oct 19, 2016

The Continuing Resolution extends the EB-5 Regional Center Program temporarily through 12/09/2016. However, if you’re a migration agent, or if you’re an individual that’s interested in the concept of EB-5 and possibly obtaining a green card for yourself and your family, you need to know that although that the program is set to continue until 12/09/16, it is very possible that USCIS on its own can raise the investment amount. The director has made it very clear that it’s within the power of USCIS to make that change. In the industry, and in the justice department and USCIS, they believe the $500,000 investment that we have today is really too low for the regional center. And they were proposing to raise it to $800, 000. Therefore, if this is something that’s important to you, don’t put it off, because we honestly don’t know when USCIS may choose to step in and raise the investment amount. I hope this information is of value to you.

EB-5 Regional Center Program Ends 9/30/17

Congress has extended the current Regional Center program to September 30th, 2017, at which time it will sunset unless extended. We anticipate future legislation that will call for an increased investment amount and more stringent requirements. For this reason, we recommend to our clients that they take action under the current law if at all possible.
