USCIS officially updated its Policy Manual on November 21, 2019

September 22, 2020

USCIS officially updated its Policy Manual on November 21, 2019, to include new rules for the EB-5 Investor Visa Program, the biggest changes are: increased minimum investment amounts, new targeted employment area (TEA) definitions, and designating authority of TEAs is taken away from the State and the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will now be directly responsible for verifying the project is located in a qualified TEA.

First, the EB-5 investment amounts have increased from $500,000 to $900,000 if the project is located in a TEA, and from $1 million to $1.8 million for a project not located in a TEA. Since the investment amounts have not changed since the program’s inception an inflation study was conducted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) consulting with the Departments of State and Labor. The federal agencies determined that the increase will reflect the present-day dollar value of the original investment amount set in 1990 by the U.S. Congress. They have also added that every fifth year there will be an inflation correction to the dollar amount.
