EB-5投资移民项目新法案将于2019年11月21日生效

Original English version 美国公民及移民服务局(USCIS)宣布新的EB-5投资移民法案将在2019年7月24日正式公布,并于2019年11月21日开始生效。这是自1990年美国国会创立此法案以来的第一次重大变革。我们公司将会尽快提供更多该法案的细节,但新政策主要包括: 新投资额:最低投资额为1,800,000美金。位于目标就业地区(TEAs)的项目最低投资额为900,000美金。但是目标就业地区认定过程的可能使该目标区域的大多数项目难以获得TEA认证。 更新的目标就业地区(TEAs)认定:目标就业地区(TEA)的认定将由美国公民及移民服务局(USCIS)决定,并且由于对连续人口普查的聚集和合并区域的限制,可能认定范围将会越来越窄。如果投资项目仅限于单个或者“直接相邻”人口普查区域,则可能导致大多数项目的投资额达到1,800,000美金。 优先日期保留的新规定: 如果投资申请人以后必须提交新的I-526申请,他们将能够保留其先前被批准的I-526申请的优先日期。这种灵活性可以保护投资人已经获得了1-526申请的批准,但是由于他们无法控制的情况(例如区域中心终止)可能会使其资格收到损害的情况。这种灵活性还允许在提交投资计划中的一些创意的转换,而不会危及到优先日期。不会将主申请人或投资人的优先日期赠送或者转移给衍生受益人。 I-829灵活性: 如果投资人自己的I-829申请中没有包含其衍生家庭成员,那么衍生家庭成员必须在I-829阶段提交他们自己的申请。 重要的是了解这项新法案将于2019年11月21日生效,即自联邦公报发布之日起的120天。根据现行的EB-5规定,在此之前 “适当提交请愿书” 将被裁定。(备注:请注意,鉴于法案生效前有120天的空档期, EB-5投资计划可能会被重新授权(在2019年9月30日之前),新的改革可能会是从美国公民及移民服务局通过一项新的重新授权的法规。 在新法案生效前,我们有120天的时间。我们专业的EB-5团队在过去两年的时间里已经递交了数千份EB-5投资申请,并与我们的合作伙伴/客户密切合作,在满足不同时限的要求下,成功地为他们提交了EB-5的申请。我们建议现有的合作伙伴和客户立即与我们联系,以确保在新法案于2019年11月21日生效之前正确的提交所有案例。   电话: +1-949-383-5358              电子邮件: info@hirson.com       网站: www.Hirson.com
