Roseville, CA 95678

(Located in the Rabobank Building near Highway 65 and Pleasant Grove Blvd.)





A key provision of EB-5 Immigrant Investor legislation, the Regional Center provision, is set to expire on September 30.  The Regional Center provision softens the job creation requirement by allowing a tally of indirect jobs created by businesses related to, but not owned by, an investment project to count towards the ten workers requirement.

A Regional Center is defined as an “economic entity. . . involved with the promotion of economic growth, improved regional productivity, job creation, and increased domestic capital investment.”  Under the program, EB-5 investors pool capital to finance projects intended to improve the local economy where the project is located.  The Regional Center program has been popular among foreign investors, with nearly 240 approved by USCIS nationwide.

Stay tuned for further developments.

The Department of Homeland Security has announced that eligible citizens and nationals of Nepal may apply for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) with USCIS for a 180-day period between June 24, 2015 and December 21, 2015.  This temporary TPS designation is due to the devastating effects within the country of the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck on April 25, and subsequent aftershocks.

TPS status allows eligible Nepalese (and those without Nepalese nationality but who last habitually resided in Nepal) to stay in the United States for 18 months without fear of removal for immigration violations, and provides employment authorization.  Further information about TPS status can be found here.

Contact us today if you are a citizen or national of Nepal and wish to apply for, or better understand, Temporary Protected Status in the United States.
