EB-5 Program 2022 Updates & An Introduction to the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program | USA Green Card

Welcome to the world of immigration by investment in particular, the recently reformed U.S. Immigration by investment program, otherwise known as the EB-5 program.

About EB-5 Program

In 1990 the US adopted into law the EB-5 program, which stands for the employment-based fifth category program. The EB-5 program allows foreign investors to invest into U.S. Development projects and so long as that investment creates more than 10 US jobs, the investor obtains the U.S. Green Card. This program allows investors to move themselves with their family to the United States permanently and after certain requirements are met, they can eventually choose to become citizens. This program has been a huge success over the past few decades, especially helping the United States come out of the major financial crisis of 2008 and 2009.
Tens of thousands of people have utilized the EB-5 program over the past few decades to create millions of US jobs and help hundreds of thousands of people immigrate to the United States.

EB-5 Program 2022 Changes & Updates

On June 30th, 2021, the EB-5 program was shut down as it did not pass a unanimous consent vote in Congress. This lead a complete program shut down and left congress scrambling to reauthorize it as past investor petitions were not being adjudicated. EB5 United had representatives travel to Washington DC in December of 2021 to speak with senators and representatives and vouch for reinstating the program and grandfathering investor petitions so that USCIS is forced to adjudicate all investor petitions, even if there were another program lapse in the future. On March 15, 2022, President Biden signed into law the “EB-5 Reform and Integrity Act”. This included:

  1. Program extension to September 30, 2027
  2. Grandfathering of all investor petitions submitted prior to September 30, 2026
  3. New set-aside visas. This allows investors from backlogged countries, primarily China, Vietnam, and India, to skip any potential line and obtain a visa without delay. 10% of all visas in Urban distressed projects will be set-aside and 20% of visas in rural areas will be set-aside.
  4. Rural projects will also receive Priority Processing
At EB5 United, we have raised more than 550 million dollars through the EB-5 program; Helping over 1,000 investors obtain more than 2,000 green cards for themselves and their family members.
At EB5 United, We have structured a simple philosophy to help all investors meet their primary two goals:

  1. Obtain a U.S. Green Card for themselves and their family
  2. Make a sound investment in a real estate project, that returns all of its principal to the investor.

At EB5 United We like to use a high Equity structure with very well capitalized developers to ensure security for our investors. We also like to work with projects that are already approved and have created jobs for our investors.

EB5 United’s philosophy also revolves around being a fiduciary for its investors. Many EB-5 Regional Centers in the past have raised money for their own development projects. We see this as a conflict of interest because someone is simply raising money and loaning it to themselves. At EB5 United, we are simply raising the money and loaning it to a project on your behalf and overseeing that loan. Therefore, our financial interests always aligned with our investors.

On behalf of EB-5 united. We hope that this video can be useful for you in your journey abroad.
