I-924, Application For Regional Center Designation Under the Immigrant Investor Program
- Ask USCIS to be designated as a regional center under the Immigrant Investor Program; or
- Request an amendment to a previously designated regional center. As detailed below, an amendment is required for certain changes to a designated regional center and is optional for other changes.
Applicants and designated regional centers must file an amendment request to:
- Seek approval for any changes to the regional center’s name, ownership, or organizational structure, or any changes to the regional center’s administration that affect its oversight and reporting responsibilities, or to add or remove any of the regional center’s principals, immediately following the changed circumstances; or
- Change the geographic area of a regional center.
- For geographic area expansion requests, we must approve the Form I-924 amendment before a Form I-526 petitioner may demonstrate eligibility at the time of filing their petition based on an investment in the expanded area.
Applicants and designated regional centers may file an amendment request to:
- Change the industries of focus of the regional center;
- Add a new commercial enterprise associated with the regional center and/or seek a preliminary determination of EB-5 compliance for an exemplar Form I-526, Immigrant Petition by Alien Investor, for that new commercial enterprise; or
- Notify USCIS of changes in the name, organizational structure or administration, capital investment instruments, or offering memoranda (including changes in the economic analysis and underlying business plan used to estimate job creation) for a previously added new commercial enterprise associated with the regional center.
- An I-924 amendment is not required to report changes of address, contact information, a change of duties among the regional center principals, changes to non-principal managing companies, contracting agents or similar changes, or information described above. The regional center must notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of such changes. We will review any changes submitted by email and may require or recommend, as appropriate, the regional center to file a Form I-924 Amendment.
