First, it is advisable to seek the services of an experienced EB-5 attorney and Law Firm such as ours, to assist you in the EB-5 compliance regarding the required employment creation through construction jobs. We have assisted many EB-5 clients in regard to hotel projects and the requirements for job creation. Second, it is advisable to contemplate having your EB-5 project associate with an existing EB-5 regional center so that you may show the required job creation through construction by using acceptable economic methodologies. Please note under an EB-5 Region Center hotel project you can show that the required jobs are created indirectly through acceptable economic methodologies.
Jobs to be counted for EB-5 purposes have to be full time jobs and “permanent,” which is a term with its own EB-5 definition to mean a job lasting at least 2 years. If this investment is through a regional center, you can also count indirect and induced jobs to meet the requirements. It is important to retain qualified EB5 counsel, like our law firm, work with a qualified EB5 economist and ensure compliance with the current rules and regulations.
