I-924A, Annual Certification of Regional Center

Alert: Statutory authorization for the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Regional Center Program ended at midnight on June 30, 2021. This sunset in authorization does not affect EB-5 petitions filed by investors who are not seeking a visa under the Regional Center Program. Due to the sunset in authorization for the Regional Center Program, we will reject the following forms received on or after July 1, 2021:

Until further notice, we will hold (that is, not act on) any pending petition or application of these form types that is dependent on the lapsed statutory authority and was filed before the end of the statutory authorization. At the end of calendar year 2021, unless there is new legislation for regional centers, we will reevaluate whether to keep this hold in place. If we wrote to you about your petition or application on or before June 30, 2021, you should review our written correspondence and respond by the due date (as applicable). Although we cannot review your response right now, we will keep your response for review if circumstances change.

We will still accept and review Form I-829, Petition by Investor to Remove Conditions on Permanent Resident Status, including those filed on or after July 1, 2021.

In addition, we will keep on hold (that is, not act on) any Form I-485 that is based on a Form I-526 for an approved regional center; the Form I-526 must have been filed before the end of the statutory authorization. At the end of calendar year 2021, unless there is new legislation for regional centers, we will reevaluate the hold. We will accept and adjudicate Forms I-765 and I-131 relating to these pending Forms I-485.

We will provide further guidance if circumstances change or further guidance becomes necessary.

Regional centers use this form to demonstrate continued eligibility for regional center designation. Regional centers that remain designated for participation in the program as of Sept. 30 of a given year must submit Form I-924A with the required supporting documentation on or before Dec. 29 of that same year.
