DHS/USCIS RIN: 1615-AC07 Publication ID: Spring 2016 
Title: Improvement of the Employment Creation (EB-5) Immigrant Regulations 
Abstract:

DHS is proposing to update its EB-5 regulations to improve clarity by having two distinct regulatory sections - one for individual investors and one for combined investors in a designated regional center investment. DHS is also proposing to amend its regulations in response to statutory amendments that require that some portions of the regulation be updated. For example, the statute was revised to eliminate the requirement involving "increased export sales," yet this requirement is still listed in the regulations. Unique EB-5 program issues which will be addressed in the updated regulation are: the designation of Targeted Employment Areas; indirect job creation; the required investment amount; material changes effect on conditional residency; the regional center designation process; and monitoring for regional center compliance.
