  • + July 24th, 2020USCIS Policy Manual Update regarding Redeployment

    On July 24, 2020, USCIS issued an important Policy Manual update that provides long-awaited guidance affecting capital redeployment after the initial capital deployment has been returned to the new commercial enterprise (NCE). Key points to note from this update include:

    – Redeployment must be through the same NCE and Regional Center, but does not need to be through the same job creating entity (JCE)

    – Redeployment must be within the geographic area of the same Regional Center, but does not need to remain in a targeted employment area (TEA)

    – Redeployment can be into any commercial activity that is consistent with the purpose of the NCE

    – Redeployment should occur within 12 months to be considered “a reasonable amount of time to further deploy capital” but USCIS will consider evidence showing that a longer period was reasonable

    – The purchase of financial instruments traded on secondary markets generally does not satisfy USCIS requirements for initial and further deployment of capital.

    For more information, please see Volume 6, Chapter 2 of the Policy Manual.

  • + July 14th, 2020Trump’s Executive Order on Hong Kong

    On July 14, 2020, President Trump issued an Executive Order to “suspend or eliminate different and preferential treatment for Hong Kong.” The President determined that the Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong is no longer sufficiently autonomous to justify differential treatment in relation to the People’s Republic of China. It means that EB-5 investors who were born in Hong Kong are subject to the Mainland China retrogression line and need to wait for their EB-5 visas to be issued. The Executive Order goes into effect 15 days after issuance unless it is rescinded, amended, or Congress passes legislation to override this Executive Order.


    However, the latest August Visa Bulletin had not indicated that Hong Kong-born investors are treated as part of the Mainland China-born yet. As such, it appears that Hong Kong-born investors who have received their I-526 approvals may apply for consular processing or adjustment of status in August.


    Please also note that according to the website for the U.S. Consulate General Hong Kong and Macau, it has resumed limited immigrant and nonimmigrant visa services. We hope that investors from Hong Kong can schedule their interviews at the consulate before the Executive Order takes effect.

  • + June 16th, 2020IIUSA Discussion with Charlie Oppenheim – Update

    On June 16, 2020, Mr. Charlie Oppenheim, Chief, Visa Control and Reporting Division, U.S. Department of State, spoke at the IIUSA webinar and had some important updates about visa usage this fiscal year, the possibility of continuing to have forward movement for visa backlogged countries (India is now current!), and allocating at least 4200 more EB-5 visas for the next fiscal year. He also indicated that Hong Kong will continue to be treated as an independent country on the visa bulletin unless an act of legislation changes this. He also indicated that his previous projections about the time for new applicants to wait in line for a visa was wrong for India, which is the reason why India is now current, and he does not think it will be facing any visa backlog in the near future. This statement also implies that his projections about the wait times for Mainland China and Vietnamese applicants were also wrong. These are very exciting news for us and for the industry.
