How will a difference in EB-5 jobs created affect my removal of conditions?

I am getting ready to file my I-829. When I filed my I-526 years ago, I stated that through my investment I would create 26 qualified U.S. jobs. However, my investment ended up only generating 18 qualified U.S. jobs instead of the original 26. Will this difference be a problem? Do I risk not getting the condition removed because I created fewer qualified U.S. jobs than I originally proposed BUT MORE than the 10 that are required?

    It appears you will be able to show 10 jobs. Unless the business activities changed dramatically, this situation may not be an issue.

    So long as you create 10 jobs and are otherwise qualified, your case should still be approvable. Any job creation count over 10 does not help or harm your petition but may affect other investors if they are relying on the buffer.

    As long as you create at least 10 jobs for U.S. workers, the fact that you did not create 26 should not be a problem.

    There should not be any problem since you clearly met the required 10 jobs and surpassed it.

    As long as you created 10 full-time jobs, your case should be approved. You do not need to create more than that for the green card purposes.

    It appears you had a very large cushion, so as long as you created 10 new jobs as a result of your investment, you should be fine.

    As long as you were the only investor and the jobs you created were more than 10, you will be fine. The requirement to meet is 10+ jobs created for each investor.

    As long as the minimum requisite qualifying jobs have been created (at least 10), your I-829 filing should not be affected. You should still also work with your attorney to prepare a detailed explanation for the discrepancy in jobs created, but that in and of itself is not a reason for denial of the I-829.

    It should not affect you obtaining your I-829 approval.
