EB-5 Q&A:What does USCIS look for when examining project documents


To establish an EB-5 project, there are two essential requirements to be satisfied. One is whether the investor substantially meets the capital investment requirement. Another is whether the investment meets the 10-full time job creation requirement. USCIS closely exams the submission to determine that the required capital has been invested or is actively in the processing of being invested. Caution - - funds “in the process of being invested” may not derive from the project in which the investment is made. USCIS also closely examines whether the need for not fewer than 10 full-time jobs will result due to the nature and projected size of the project. Caution - - A comprehensive business plan is a must.; Be specific in identifying the tasks each job will perform.
