EB-5 Immigration: Preparing for the Changes on the Horizon
The future of the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program remains uncertain as Congress still fails to pass a long-term extension, and continues to delay the expiration date. Although this is a welcome development, short-term extensions cause the EB-5 immigration community to reflect on the potential changes including revisions to the definition of targeted employment area, increased investment amount, and separate categories of reserved visas that may be brought by future legislation. Modifications and augmentations to EB-5 requirements are also one of their top concerns.
In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of the fundamentals as well as updates regarding the latest and significant issues surrounding the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program. Speakers will also offer best compliance practices in this evolving legislative landscape.
