President Trump’s Budget Deal With Congress Includes Extension of the EB-5 Regional Center Program Through December 8, 2017
The EB-5 Regional Center Program is officially extended until December 8, 2017. With this short-term extension, there are no changes to the EB-5 requirements.
The program is extended through H.R. 601 – Continuing Appropriations Act, which was passed by both the House of Representatives and Senate last week. The President signed the bill into law on September 8, 2017 in order to keep the U.S. government open and funded.

Please note: The fact that the program is extended to December 8, 2017 does not guarantee that the program will remain unchanged until that date. It’s possible that Congress could pass legislation before December that would affect the EB-5 visa category. If you are interested in obtaining an EB-5 visa, please contact the attorneys at SKT for a consultation as to how you should proceed with your case.
