Ever since 2019, the EB-5 minimum investment amount has increased to $900,000 USD. This is an 80% increase over the previous limit. Not everyone is able to apply for the EB-5 by investing $900,000 in one single investment.
A few EB-5 Regional centers and projects have realized this and have now started to offer EB-5 Investments in partial lots. So, a Potential EB-5 investor can start off by investing just $100,000 into the EB-5 project and filing their I-526 petition thereby locking their Priority date immediately. While waiting for the I-526 petition to be approved, the Investor can invest the remaining balance of the $900,000 and complete their EB-5 investment.
