EB-5 minimum investment lowered back to $1M

On June 22, 2021, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California vacated the Final Rule of the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program Modernization, which, among other terms, sought to increase the minimum investment amounts for the EB-5 program to account for inflation. In processing I-526 applications, the USCIS considers the Behring Regional Center decision, and will still accept filings using the Form I-526 April 15, 2019 version, which is the only updated DHS form that was part of the vacated rule.
