[Q] Can a direct individual EB-5 case's new commercial enterprise make loans to businesses and create jobs?


[Q] EB-5 Investors (each with $1 million or more to invest)want to invest with me to form a new direct EB-5 investment company whose business will be to make direct loans to other businesses that will have job creation enough to reach 10 new jobs per investor. Can this new business loan company be structured as a direct investment for the EB-5 Investors?

No, you cannot, because direct, individual EB-5 cases require jobs to be created directly. Jobs that are created by making loans to job-creating business(es) are all indirect and/or induced jobs.
