EB-5 Investor Based Immigration Conference
Audio program! (check our CLE Programs page for live versions)
Congress may make major changes to the EB-5 Immigrant Investment Visa program in September 2018. Purchase this audio program to see how it affects your clients and your options. Learn all about EB-5, the changes, the process, the opportunities.
The federal EB-5 Investor Based Immigration Program is a way for a foreign investor to obtain a visa faster than most other options. Under this program, foreign investors and entrepreneurs (and their spouses and unmarried children under 21) are eligible to apply for a green card (permanent residence) if they:
- Make the necessary investment in a commercial enterprise in the United States; and
- Plan to create or preserve 10 permanent full-time jobs for qualified U.S. workers.
Congress created the EB-5 Program in 1990 to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by foreign investors.
57,981 EB-5 petitions were filed in the 5 years from 2012-2017, representing nearly $30 billion in capital.
This translates to a simple fact: EB-5 program is terrific source of business for a variety of types of attorneys such as Immigration, SEC and Real Estate attorneys, as well as other professionals, such as accountants, commercial real estate agents, and economists.
It is an excellent source of capital for projects and it is also something that cities and county development departments should explore when thinking about their community’s development and growth.
For example, in Los Angeles the Dream Hotel, the Waldorf Hotel, the Edition Hotel and in Miami the Four Seasons Condos have all been funded by EB-5 investments.
With some of the most well known professionals in the field speaking, you will learn all about the EB-5 program, the latest changes and complications, and the opportunities it presents your clients.
Over the course of two days, we held seventeen intensive educational sessions featuring industry leaders who will delve into the intricacies of EB-5 for various audiences – attorneys, developers, real estate professionals, investors and others.
The audio for day one kicks-off one with the basics, for those who need a better understanding of EB-5 or need a refresher. This includes a discussion of EB-5, what to expect, the main criteria and types of EB-5 projects. The next few sessions review issues related to representing investors & creating successful I-526 Filings.
We’ll move on to several break-out sessions, designed for those with specific interests – including a focus on forms (of which there are many), the EB-5 deal structure and an in-depth discussion of Direct EB-5s.
Next you’ll learn about source and path of funds and then due diligence.
Our audio for the second day kicks off with critical security law considerations, a potential trouble area.
Quotas and per country limits will be explained as will the process and requirements for documenting job creation and the I-829 petition.
Day Two continues with a detailed discussion of Reginal Center reporting requirements, site visits, audits and compliance, as well as the critical issue of redeployment.
And the program would not be complete without a discussion of waivers under the Trump administration and the future of Iran, China, Vietnam, India, Brazil, South Korea, Taiwan in the EB-5 realm.
We give the latest updates on any changes to legislation, expected at the end of September 2018.
Day Two ends with the penultimate discussion – what do you do when things go wrong.
You can purchase the recording for either day or the full conference.
This program was recorded live on October 4-5, 2018. The Home Study Package includes seminar materials, PowerPoints and the audio recording.
