EB-5 Interactive Series: Annual Reporting Requirements for Continued Eligibility within the Regional Center Program, (Form I-924A)
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) invited you to participate in our informational series, EB-5 Interactive, on Thursday, September 17, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. (Eastern). During the call, we discussed Form I-924A, Supplement to Form I-924, Application For Regional Center Under the Immigrant Investor Pilot Program, which must be filed annually by all regional centers and when requested by USCIS. USCIS also provided helpful filing tips, and raised issues it has identified in reviewing Forms I-924A.
Why This Is Important
Approved EB-5 regional centers must submit a Form I-924A, Supplement to Form I-924 annually to demonstrate continued eligibility for the regional center designation – namely, that they continue to promote economic growth, improved regional productivity, job creation or increased domestic capital investment in the approved geographic area. See 8 CFR 204.6(m)(6) (PDF).
The form must be filed for each fiscal year (October 1 through September 30) within 90 days after the end of the fiscal year (on or before December 29).
