NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, July 23, 2021 / -- EB5 Affiliate Network (EB5AN), a leading EB-5 consultancy, regional center operator, and fund manager, will host a free webinar, “Direct EB-5 Investment at $500K with Top Immigration Attorneys – What EB-5 Investors Should Know for Direct EB-5 Investment” with guest panelists David Hirson, Esq., founder of David Hirson & Partners, a global immigration law firm, and Christian Triantaphyllis, Esq., partner at Jackson Walker, LLP on a webinar to get answers to the below questions and more, on Thursday, July 29, 2021, at 2:00 PM EDT.

Join our webinar to learn about how to make an direct EB-5 investment today at $500K. With the recent EB-5 rule change, the minimum investment amount has been temporarily reduced from $900K to $500K for an unknown period of time. Top EB-5 immigration attorneys, David Hirson, Esq., and Christian Triantaphyllis, Esq., will explain the immigration process for a direct EB-5 investor to obtain green cards for all family members as well as the immediate next steps that must be taken to begin the application process prior to a change in the minimum investment amount.

A direct EB-5 investment requires a minimum investment of $500,000 in a targeted employment area (TEA) or $1.0 million if not located in a TEA. Investors may use funds from a variety of sources, but the sources and flow of funds must be fully documented. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) applies considerable scrutiny to EB-5 green card applications, and the most common reason for EB-5 visa denials is unacceptable or inadequate source-of-funds documentation.


The following questions will be covered on the webinar:

• What are the key steps in the EB-5 direct investment process?
• What documents are required to prove that my funds have been legally earned?
• What is the total cost of making an EB-5 investment, including all fees?
• How long will it take for me and my family to receive green cards?
• As a citizen from the middle east, am I eligible for an EB-5 visa?
• What is the job requirement? How does a direct EB-5 project show 10 jobs?

Sam Silverman, managing partner of EB5AN, urges prospective EB-5 investors to consider a direct EB-5 investment given the temporary reduction back to $500K. “Given the recent Federal Court decision which reversed the past rule change increasing the minimum investment amount back down from $900K, the direct EB-5 investment has been temporarily reduced back to $500K and as a result we are seeing incredibly strong demand for investment given the significant price reduction.”

David Hirson, Esq., managing partner of David Hirson & Partners, has advised potential EB-5 investors to “Make sure to understand all of the requirements for proving lawful source of funds and assemble the required documentation in advance to filing an EB-5 direct investment application.”

Christian Triantaphyllis, Esq., partner at Jackson Walker, LLP, said “The recent reduction in the minimum investment amount from $900K to $500K has put the EB-5 direct investment option within reach for thousands of potential families seeking to relocate to the United States for business and personal reasons.”

Created by the U.S. Congress in 1990, the EB-5 program provides a clear pathway to permanent residency and citizenship. Tens of thousands of families from nearly every country have successfully immigrated by making qualifying investments in U.S. projects and business enterprises. The EB-5 visa is popular among people currently living abroad as well as those already working in the U.S. on nonimmigrant visas.
