What is meant by “construction jobs lasting over two years” in regards to EB-5 job creation?
I am an EB-5 construction project developer in the process of calculating cost and job creation predictions. I have read that construction jobs extending beyond two years can somehow be counted towards the job creation requirement. What is meant by “construction jobs lasting over two years?” Why is the requirement different for construction jobs versus other types of jobs created under EB-5?
In a Direct EB-5 project you can count direct construction jobs lasting more than two years. While,in a Regional Center EB-5 project indirect construction jobs can satisfy the job requirements even when the construction is less than two years.
