Free EB-5 Evaluation

If an EB-5 investor exits a direct investment project after I-829 approval, how might this affect the job creation calculation for the project’s other EB-5 investors?

In direct investment projects with more than one EB-5 investor, each investor is responsible for the creation of 10 permanent, full-time job positions. In other words, each investor must be able to demonstrate the connection between his/her investment and the jobs that were created. If an investor exits the project and withdraws his/her principal investment after receiving I-829 approval, the effect on the business’s job creation could be substantial. This highlights the importance of a carefully constructed exit strategy that protects all investors. An experienced EB-5 immigration attorney would likely be needed to advise the remaining investors on how to best proceed.
