New EB-5 Regulations Are Published and Will Be Effective On November 21, 2019

As you know, several changes to the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program will go into effect very soon.

Increased minimum investments:

  • The minimum investment in a TEA (Targeted Employment Area or Rural Area) increases to $900,000 (from $500,000).
  • The standard minimum investment amount in a Non-TEA or Non-Rural Area increases to $1.8 million (from $1 million).

Targeted employment area (TEA) designations:

  • DHS (U.S. Department of Homeland Security) will now directly review and determine the designation of high-unemployment TEAs; they will no longer rely on TEA designations made by each state government.
  • Specially designated high-unemployment TEAs will be more restrictive than the present TEA calculation. Therefore, on November 21st, most TEA locations today will not be TEAs. This will result in most current EB-5 Regional Center Projects requiring US$1.8 million as the EB-5 investment amount.
