Direct Jobs

Generation of at least 10 fulltime direct jobs for American workers for 24 months is mandatory for EB-5 investments made to non-Regional Center projects. Jobs that are detectable and are generated directly from the commercial enterprise that is a recipient of the EB-5 investment are direct jobs. A Regional Center project or an individual investment can generate direct jobs. An identifiable job that is found within the commercial enterprise and that the key applicant of the EB-5 visa invested in, and as a result the EB-5 project has generated employment opportunities for qualified individuals, is referred to as a direct job. Direct jobs are real opportunities for employment in a business. Generation of direct jobs may count for investors in EB-5 program. Concierge employee in a hotel project is an example of a direct job.

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 in February 2022, and continues to work with international families that want to explore alternative residency options.
