EB-5 Regional Center Program Regulations Take Effect
Thursday, November 21, 2019 - As anticipated and reported, the final rule which makes regulatory changes to the EB-5 Regional Center Program went into effect (today) after the 120 waiting period of the final rule being published.
 
The final rule, which makes several changes to the program, includes the following: 
  • Increases investment amounts from $500,000 and $1,000,000 to $900,000 and $1,800,000 respectively
  • Maintains priority date for investors who must refile for circumstances outside of their control
