Indirect Jobs

In some circumstances, jobs that are created as a consequence of a business being affiliated with the local center can count towards your EB-5 jobs quota. As long as they are the result of an investment by the EB-5 local center and these jobs are defined as those generated in a profitable enterprise. Once they are linked to the local center either as a direct result of EB-5 investment or collaterally as a consequence. Employment created as a consequence of your EB-5 investment in a local center, such as, if a hotel investment results in a local airport employing a shuttle bus service, this employment counts as indirect and allocated to your EB-5 jobs quota. These jobs should be the jobs created as a direct or ancillary consequence of an investment by the main EB-5 applicant, into a local commercial enterprise. To be considered indirect employment, they must provide the NCE with goods or services. An example of indirect employment might be any contractors employed at a hotel project.

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 December, and continues to work with international families that want to explore alternative residency options.
