Why affiliate your EB-5 project in Virginia Beach with the EB5AN State of Virginia EB-5 regional center?

Affiliating with our EB-5 regional center allows you to…

1. Immediately raise EB-5 capital for your project in Virginia Beach.

If you have an EB-5 project in Virginia Beach, affiliating with EB5AN will enable you to immediately raise EB-5 investment funds anywhere within Virginia Beach, since our EB5AN State of Virginia regional center covers the entire state of Virginia. EB5AN has received official approval from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for numerous Immigrant Investor Regional Centers, all of which are listed on the USCIS website.

2. Use indirect job creation to meet the EB-5 investment requirement of 10 jobs per EB-5 investor.

EB-5 projects that affiliate with any of our regional centers can count both direct and indirect job creation, leading to higher job creation figures and allowing project developers to raise significantly more EB-5 capital. EB-5 projects that do not affiliate with a regional center can rely only on actual payroll employees, who must be employed for at least 24 months.

Does Virginia Beach qualify as a targeted employment area?

Because targeted employment area (TEA) designation holds numerous benefits for EB-5 projects in Virginia Beach and other cities, it is important to understand both the benefits of and the USCIS process for TEA designation. To determine whether your EB-5 project location falls within a TEA, please consult our free EB-5 TEA map, which includes data for the entire United States. All you need to do is to enter the project address—the rest of the process is automated.

The EB5AN TEA map relies on the most recently published versions of two data sets, namely American Community Survey (ACS) five-year data and Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data. It assesses TEA eligibility based on four calculation methodologies USCIS accepts—three related to calculating unemployment rates and one related to qualification as a rural TEA. Unemployment rates are calculated using (1) American Community Survey (ACS) five-year unemployment data by census tract, (2) the census-share methodology, which is based on a combination of ACS data and county-level BLS data, and (3) BLS county-level data for TEA determination on a county-wide level. To determine rural qualification, population and geographical data are considered. To qualify as a TEA, a project site needs to qualify under only one calculation method.

A TEA can also be created by combining directly adjacent census tracts and considering the weighted average unemployment rate. The EB5AN TEA map performs this function automatically.
