Topic: On the April 22, 2015 U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) EB-5 public engagement teleconference, the Immigrant Investor Program Office (“IPO”) articulated a new adjudications standard that precludes the EB-5 investor’s use of loan proceeds as a source of investment capital unless the investor shows that the promise to repay the loan has been secured by assets the investor owns.

When using loan proceeds as EB-5 capital, a petitioner must demonstrate first that they are personally and primarily liable for the indebtedness. That is, they must demonstrate that they bear primary responsibility under the loan documents for repaying the debt that is being used to satisfy the petitioner’s minimum required investment amount.

In addition, the petitioner must demonstrate that the indebtedness is secured by assets the petitioner owns and that the value of such collateral is sufficient to secure the amount of indebtedness that is being used to satisfy the petitioner’s minimum required investment amount. Put another way, indebtedness secured by assets owned by the petitioner qualifies as “capital” only up to the value of such collateralized assets.

Join our expert panel on May 28th for a discussion of the issue of “indebtedness” as “capital” and what this might mean for cases pending before USCIS.

Going Global: The Importance of Diversifying the EB-5 Investor Marketplace
June 11, 2015 
When analyzing U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) adjudication data, and Department of State visa usage by country, there are several growth markets in Asia, Europe and Latin America that are becoming more important for the EB-5 industry.

This panel, which includes several members of IIUSA’s Investor Markets Committee, will examine several macro-trends affecting global EB-5 investment while also taking a more nuanced look into what motivates potential investment by immigration participants more broadly from other areas of the world.

Best Practices: Working with Sales Intermediaries in an EB-5 Transaction

June 25, 2015

Since 2014, IIUSA’s Best Practices Committee has been hard at work developing recommendations around working with sales intermediaries in an EB-5 transaction due to the essential – and complex – nature of this aspect of marketing an EB-5 offering to investors overseas.

Whether the intermediary is a foreign migration intermediary, law firm or FINRA-licensed broker-dealer, it is important that the project sponsor conduct proper due diligence on their prospective partners and work constructively with that entity throughout their engagement.
