How do jobs qualify for projects that are already under construction?
For the purposes of EB-5, only full-time permanent jobs count toward the job-creation requirement. Construction jobs lasting over two years count. The advantage of an EB-5 investment through a project within a USCIS-approved regional center is indirect/induced job creation.
Regional centers will supply you with a job impact/economic report that will outline and estimate job creation per each investor in a particular project. At the I-829 stage (when conditions are removed from the conditional green card) documents are submitted to attest to job creation during an investor’s conditional residency and USCIS will review whether the job creation methodology was followed.
