Minimum Investments for US EB-5 Visa Increasing

The EB-5 Investor Visa is visa which allows immigrants to invest in the United States in order obtain a Green Card. The program has been controversial in the past as it allows wealthy foreign individuals a way to quickly apply for and receive a Green Card.

How Is The EB-5 Visa Investment Changing?

The President Trump’s administration, in a new rule published the 24th of July 2019,  will raise the initial investment cost. Previously, an investment of $500,000 was needed in order to qualify for an EB-5 investor visa. Under the new system, an investment of $900,000 will be needed. The investment must also be going into an area that has a need for investment. The state swill no longer be in charge of this decision but rather Homeland Security will make the assessments. The new rule also changes the rules on what is considered an area in need. This aims to prevent developers from attempting to shape their boundaries in a way that will allow affluent communities to benefit from the investment. In areas that are not in need, the investment will increase from $1 million to $1.8 million. These investment rates will be adjusted every five years in order to accommodate inflation.

This new rule will go into effect on the 21st of November 2019. The hope is that the increased investment cost will help to correct the abuses that have occurred in this visa program. Many see the program as creating a stream of immigration that is only available to the wealthy.

I got my US L1 Visa through them, pretty smooth process. We weren’t sure they’d take our case as we had some issues with retrieving some documents, but they worked with us on getting everything we needed. Recommend.

Allow me to express that our case proved to be more complex than initially anticipated. However, Aisha and Reena provided unwavering support throughout the entire process. At each juncture, they offered clear guidance on necessary actions, guiding us through the intricacies we couldn’t navigate independently. While the procedure proved more intricate than expected, our legal team maintained close communication, ensuring we were well-informed and adequately prepared. Confronted with challenges, they approached them with a positive attitude, instilling confidence through their professionalism and competence. I wholeheartedly recommend their services. While moments of stress were inevitable, their assurance and ability to convey that confidence were instrumental. Reflecting on the experience, I am certain we would not have succeeded without their assistance, or at the very least, the journey would have been significantly prolonged.
