How can a direct EB-5 project utilize indirect/induced job creation?

If someone wishes to invest directly into a running 100 bed hotel, will he be entitled to indirect and/or induced job creation? When can a direct EB-5 project utilize indirect or induced job creation?

    Only projects affiliated with regional centers can take advantage of indirect or induced job creation. We assist projects with finding regional center sponsorship for this exact reason.

    It is not allowed. Indirectly created jobs cannot be counted in a direct investment.

    If the project is affiliated with a regional center, then they can use indirect and/or induced job creation methodologies.

    The only way to utilize indirect/induced jobs is if the project is sponsored by a regional center.

    Induced and indirect jobs can only be created with a regional center. Direct projects must create direct jobs to count for EB-5 purposes.

    No, a direct EB-5 project cannot utilize indirect/induced job creation unless it works with an existing EB-5 regional center.

    If the project is run by a regional center, indirect jobs will be counted; also it depends on when you make the investment. However, in the case of a direct investment, only direct jobs will be counted that have been created by your investment. Pre-existing jobs in the business will not count towards your investment.

    Unfortunately, direct EB-5 cannot utilize indirect and induced jobs. Direct EB-5 can only rely on the jobs reflected on the payroll records.

    No, a direct investment in an EB-5 project where there is not a regional center can only count direct job creation to meet the requisite minimum job creation requirement.

    Indirect is only for investments in Targeted Employment Areas.
