Direct investment

When an individual or corporation invests into a business by expanding or purchasing the business it is known as a direct investment. In terms of the EB-5, direct investment is one of two options for investments to applicants; an investment in a regional center is the other. Other than the mandatory creation of jobs, the processes involved in regional center investment and direct investment are a mirror of each other. Also, daily management of the enterprise is a requirement for an EB-5 petitioner. However, investors in regional centers are allowed to execute more inactive roles.

EB-5 Program Update:

The EB-5 Program has lapsed. The US Congress is discussing the legislation that authorizes the program while USCIS reviews the regulations and policies for filing. Because of the recent court ruling that reversed the 2019 Modernization regulations, the investment level has shifted temporarily from $900,000 back to $500,000.

If the program is reauthorized before the regulations are updated, there may be another window of opportunity to file at $500,000.

LCR expects the program to be reauthorized before October 1, and continues to work with international families that want to explore alternative residency options.
