In a dynamic start to 2024, the EB-5 Program is undergoing significant shifts. Investors are now eyeing countries like Greece and Hungary alongside traditional favorites, reflecting a changing preference in the investment migration sector. Surprisingly, rural projects within the EB-5 Program are attracting more attention due to quicker processing and lower investment requirements, indicating a strategic pivot.

However, challenges loom with the anticipated increase in USCIS fees, which could reshape the financial aspects of the EB-5 process. The Chinese EB-5 market, despite recent hurdles, is expected to continue its growth trajectory. At the same time, introducing the EB-5 Integrity Fund fees presents new financial burdens for regional centers.

The industry is also grappling with increased USCIS scrutiny, leading to a rise in REFs, NOIDs, and denials, though hopes for improvement rest on hiring more skilled adjudicators. Delays and backlogs, particularly for investors from China and India, remain a pressing concern with no immediate resolution.

The Eagle Act, aiming to eliminate the per-country cap, faces an uncertain future, potentially impacting the sector's dynamics. Finally, a possible Supreme Court decision on the Chevron deference could open the door for more legal challenges against USCIS rulings, adding another layer of complexity to the EB-5 process.

As the EB-5 landscape evolves, these developments suggest a year filled with opportunities and challenges, requiring adaptability and resilience from investors and stakeholders alike.
