EB-5 Policy Update with Ron Klasko: Congress Letter to DHS, Pending Litigation, Form I-956, Visa Set Aside, Direct EB-5

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, May 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The EB-5 regional center program is in a state of flux. Although the program was reauthorized by Congress in March 2022, USCIS has taken the position that all EB-5 regional centers must now be redesignated prior to accepting new EB-5 investment. A letter from select Congressional leaders, pending litigation, a new Form I-956 for regional center redesignation, new visa set asides, and the unchanged direct EB-5 program have created ambiguity in the near-term for EB-5 investors and EB-5 regional center operators.
