What is the Sustainment Period?

On October 11, 2023, the US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) provided their long-awaited guidance about the EB-5 investment timeframe in EB-5 Reform and Integrity Act of 2022 (RIA) to satisfy the “at risk” requisite of the EB-5 visa. For pre-RIA investors, the sustainment period is the two years of their Conditional Residence. For post-RIA investors is “two years from investing” However, the start of this two-year clock is ambiguous, needs further clarification, and expectations to receive EB-5 capital back in two years is unrealistic as this depends on the terms of the Partnership Documents and when the Project gets liquidity. Also, their interpretation is non-binding, is not yet in the USCIS Policy Manual and is likely to be challenged in courts.
