EB-5 and Investment Issues

Important Considerations for Selection of EB-5 Program

The EB-5 program selection requires the investor to stay with the EB-5 investment for a period of five (5) years. The most important aspect of the EB-5 program is the job creation mechanism that requires the EB-5 developer to follow through on its promise to create the 10 jobs per investor. In reviewing the EB-5 program, the Investor should carefully consider the following major aspects of the EB-5 project:

  • The Developer’s business plan
  • The Methodology used for job creation
  • Whether or not the program creates required number of jobs
  • The Developer’s prior track record
  • The Geographic Area of the EB-5 investment
  • The USCIS regulations which provide that the Developer may not materially change the business plan that was initially submitted in order to receive approval for regional center designation

The EB-5 Investor should carefully select immigration counsel and an investment advisor in order to review the EB-5 regional program offering
