EB-5 Regulation To Be Published, Effective Nov. 21, 2019

Matthew Galati

Tomorrow, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will publish the EB-5 Modernization Rule in the Federal Register. 
 
The finalized regulation will raise minimum investment amounts to $900,000 (TEA) and $1.8 million (non-TEA). Furthermore, the TEA designation rules are significantly curtailed.
 
We will update our readers once we have had opportunity to fully review the regulation. Contact us today if you are interested in filing an EB-5 petition prior to the effective date.
