Facing travel bans, project disruptions, and record backlogs, what can Regional Centers and EB-5 service providers do to maintain profitability until the industry heals?
The EB-5 industry has entered a challenging new era. The huge backlog in processing I-526 petitions, stemming from strict visa caps amid a boom in applications from 2013 to 2018, had already reduced investor subscriptions before the pandemic hit. Now, with travel restricted and many pipelined projects disrupted, issuers are experiencing an accelerated decline in revenues.
But there is hope on the horizon. A reauthorization of the EB-5 program, complete with long-sought integrity measures, is expected in the coming months. And a more immigration-friendly presidential administration may, at some point, take action to increase visa supply — though this is likely still years away.
The question is: Facing a difficult period ahead, what can Regional Centers and EB-5 service providers do to bridge this chasm and emerge intact on the other side?
In this free webinar, NES Financial | JTC will host a panel of experts discussing the EB-5 program’s near future. They’ll talk through the preparations that companies need to make to comply with new integrity measures, and the ways that business models should — and perhaps must — change, if issuers are to remain successful.
