Automatic Increase of EB-5 Investment and Revenue Amount Requirements (Oct. 1, 2021)

This document is scheduled to be published in the Federal Register on 09/13/2021

"ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment. SUMMARY: On January 17, 2017, DHS published a final rule with new regulatory provisions guiding the use of parole on a case-by-case basis with respect to entrepreneurs of start-up entities who can demonstrate through evidence of substantial and demonstrated potential for rapid business growth and job creation that they would provide a significant public benefit to the United States. The 2017 regulation provided that the investment and revenue amount requirements would automatically adjust every three years by the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U). DHS is issuing this rule to inform the public of the increased amounts that will take effect at the start of Fiscal Year 2022 and to revise the regulations to accurately reflect the updated investment amounts. DATES: This final rule is effective on October 1, 2021."
