Following the increase to the minimum investment in a targeted employment area, from US$500,000 to US$900,000 in November 2019 [see here and here], interest in the EB-5 immigrant investor visa significantly dropped in early 2020.  Data from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) on quarterly filings indicated that only 61 investors filed I-526 Petitions from January through June 2020.

New data just released by USCIS reveals that 75 investors filed I-526 Petitions in the last quarter of 2020 (July through September 2020); more investors than in the previous two quarters combined.  This is a good sign that interest in the EB-5 program is returning.

By making a qualifying investment into a business in the U.S., the EB-5 immigrant investor visa can be one of the easiest, quickest ways for a family to immigrate to the United States.   Enterline Immigration has years of experience and represented hundreds of investors to navigate through the process.
