In 1992, Congress created the Immigrant Investor Program, also known as the Regional Center Program. This sets aside EB-5 visas for participants who invest in commercial enterprises associated with regional centers approved byRead more about EB-5 Visas: Everything you need to know[…]

No room for errors when completing EB-5 applications.
On July 27, 2018 The National Law Review published an article warning against such practice. According to the article, “effective September 11, 2018, adjudicators for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will have the authority to deny any application or petition that is incomplete or lacks sufficient evidence without first issuing a request for evidence (RFE) or notice of intent to deny (NOID). The new guidelines are a reversal of the current policy, which requires that an RFE be issued unless there is “no possibility” that the deficiency can be remedied. Depending on the vigor with which it is enforced, this policy shift may eliminate the opportunity for petitioners and applicants to correct simple errors, like missing documents, or to beef-up documentation in support of an applicant’s eligibility, before the case is denied.
What is this waterfall anyway? At the end of the day, does it really matter?

It Seems like EB-5 Investor Visa will get another clean extension until September 30, 2018!!!
As you all know, the EB-5 current investment amount is $500,000 in a targeted employment areas, but we have been experiencing quite a bit of uncertainty about this amount for well over a number of years now.
The window of opportunity to invest at the $ 500,000 level is tightening. Congress extended the current law to February 8, 2018 with no changes!
Yes! This time it really is! Trust us and act now if you don’t want to get caught up having to invest $ 1,800,000 for the same exact project. Why do we think that this time it might actually happen? For a number of reasons.
Congress passed a Continuing Resolution extending the EB-5 program to January 19, 2018.

Congress extended “again” the current law to December 22, 2017 with no changes!
Congress is currently debating a number of issues related to EB-5. Our hope is that these issues will all be clarified once the long awaited amendments are made and the new comprehensive immigration law is enacted.
Congress extended the current law to December 8, 2017 with no changes!
