Comment: India EB5 Market Changing Dynamics

Investment Voice Travels!
The Changing Dynamics Of The Indian EB-5 Market

India has been one of the top markets for EB investment for some years now. Post RIA and post COVID, does this statement still hold true? Investment Voice Travels explores this theme with ILW’s Sam Udani: 

EB-5 Investment Voice asks Sam Udani from Immigration Law Worldwide ("ILW") to walk us through his most recent travels across India:

India’s post-Covid subcontinental surge to EB-5 makes its mark on the investment immigration market. Despite an increase in the minimum investment – $800,000 – after Covid-19, the EB-5 Program reopened and the demand for visas spiked amongst Indian investors. 

Sam gives us his unique perspective on the current climate of India’s EB-5 ecosystem after having traveled across the country and speaking to dozens of investment immigration agents himself.

Sam reveals the market trends and their surprising driving factors. Which begs the question, what exactly is driving this EB-5 market surge? New legislation passed by US Congress, the influence of immigration agents, or the wants of the investors themselves?

Within Episode 184, Mona and Sam discussed China’s dominance in the EB-5 market which has continued to exist in American investment immigration to date. In this episode, Mona, Rebecca, and Sam cover India’s new surge in the EB-5 market, what caused it, and if this development will last.

Notwithstanding the fact that the topic of EB-5 cannot be discussed without first addressing the Reform and Integrity Act ("RIA") and the impact it has had, and will continue to have, for Indian investors attempting to navigate the whirlwind of changes within this investment landscape.
