What a government shutdown means to potential EB-5 investors

Hello, I’m Vaughan de Kirby. As you know I’m an Investment Immigration Attorney. And today I wanted to give you a brief update on what’s happening with EB-5.

I’d love to give you some certainty, but as I speak today, Congress is trying to hammer out a compromise with President Trump to continue running part of the government and avoid a shutdown, and at the same time continue EB-5.

Now there’re two scenarios that could occur. One hopefully they will extend the government even briefly, which would extend EB-5 to February 8th. But it is very possible that the government will in fact have a partial shutdown and that will also shut down EB-5. But you need to know what’s happened in the past: the government will reopen the sections of the government that have been closed and that will include EB-5.

EB-5 is not going to disappear permanently. It may disappear for a short period of time. If EB-5 is important to you, you should continue working with your attorney and doing your homework on EB-5, because it is going to come back and it’s going to come back for you. Thank you!

Please feel free to contact us or call 415-221-2345 if you have questions on your EB-5 application. We look forward to working with you!

EB-5 Regional Center Program Ends 9/30/19

Congress has extended the current Regional Center program to September 30th, 2019, 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.
