On October 17, 2018, the Trump Administration updated the expected release of the new EB-5 Regulations to November, 2018. These proposed regulations have been expected for some time and include an increase in the EB-5 investment amount from the current $500,000 up to as high as $1,800,000. At this time it is not possible to determine if the Final Regulations will actually be issued in November 2018 or at a later date, or what the investment amount will be raised to, but the updated Final Rule date to November 2018 is important information we are providing to potential investors and the EB-5 community.
To view the proposed regulations, see the US Office of Management and Budget website at: https://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/eAgendaViewRule?pubId=201810&RIN=1615-AC07
