Bombshell: USCIS proposes to increase EB5 investment amount

The USCIS will publish new rules called "EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program Modernization" tomorrow that among other things, dramatically increase the minimum investment amount from $500,000 to $1,350,000(TEA) and from $1,000,000 to $1,800,000 (none TEA).

The public will have 3 months to make comments about the new rules and after that the USCIS has about 2 months to finalize and publish the new rules.

Therefore, the higher amount rule may take effect sometime after June, 2017.

This 5-6 months period may be the last chance to invest in EB-5 program at the current lower amount.
