USCIS Updates Policy Manual Regarding Immigrant Investors and Investment of Loans Proceeds

7/22/21 AILA Doc. No. 21072601. Business Immigration, EB-5 Investors

USCIS updates its policy guidance in the USCIS Policy Manual to reflect that USCIS evaluates an investment of lawfully obtained loan proceeds as a contribution of cash rather than indebtedness. USCIS continues to determine whether loan proceeds were lawfully acquired and whether the investor has placed the required amount of capital at risk for the purpose of generating a return on that capital.
