Will changing EB-5 business locations after I-526 filing be considered a material change upon I-829 filing?

A change to the business’s location will not likely constitute a material change as long as the other facts of the case remain the same. For instance, if the project is sponsored by a regional center, the new location would need to be within the regional center’s geographic scope. Also, if the project was in a targeted employment area (TEA), the new location would likewise need to be in a TEA. Job creation based on regional economic analysis would also need to remain unchanged. An immigration attorney and economist may need to be consulted to determine whether a change of location will result in any material changes to the EB-5 case.
