Sadly not. If you didn’t apply for a $500,000 EB5 Green Card before the pricing increases that took effect on March 15, 2022, you’re out of luck.
To apply for an EB5 in 2024, you’ll need to invest either $800,000, or $1,050,000, as per the below table:
|Petition Filing Date||Direct EB5 Investment||Targeted Employment Area (TEA)* Investment||High-Employment Area Investment Amount|
|Before March 15, 2022||$1,000,000||$500,000||$1,000,000|
|On or After March 15, 2022||$1,050,000||$800,000 (includes infrastructure projects)||N/A|
*Meaning either rural or high unemployment areas
There are, however, some real estate projects in Targeted Employment Areas offering EB5 investor financing options in 2024.
These financed EB5 programs allow EB5 applicants to invest as little as $500,000 of their own capital, whilst obtaining a loan for the remaining $300,000. Please note that these tend to be limited-availability options.
