Although, in the last few decades, the visa program lost its importance, with the introduction of the EB-5 Reform and Integrity Act (RIA) Act in 2022; the visa program has gained prominence again.

The recent changes in the Act included extending the minimum investment period to 2 years and increasing the minimum investment amount to $900,000 for Targeted Employment Area (TEA) projects and $1,800,000 for others.

The change is already seen from 2023. As per the USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) report, more than 2,350 I-526 applications from Indians have been filed for EB-5 visas. Most of the applications are at present waiting for the visa dates.
