The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Regional Center Program expired at the end of the day on Dec. 21, 2018, due to a lapse in congressional authorization to continue the program. All regional center applications and individual petitions are affected. USCIS will not accept new Forms I-924, Application for Regional Center Designation Under the Immigrant Investor Program, as of Dec. 21, 2018. Any pending Forms I-924 as of Dec. 21, 2018, will be put on hold until further notice.  

Regional centers should continue to submit Form I-924A, Annual Certification of Regional Center, for fiscal year 2018. 

We will continue to receive regional center-affiliated Forms I-526, Immigrant Petition by Alien Entrepreneur, and Forms I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, after the close of business on Dec. 22, 2018. As of Dec. 22, 2018, we will put unadjudicated regional center-affiliated Forms I-526 and I-485 (whether filed before or after the expiration date) on hold for an undetermined length of time.

All Forms I-829, Petition by Entrepreneur to Remove Conditions on Permanent Resident Status, filed before or after the expiration date, will not be affected by the expiration of the program.

USCIS will provide further guidance to the public if legislation is enacted to reauthorize, extend, or amend the regional center program.

As of Jan. 7, 2019, there are 887 approved regional centers.

The following is a list of current EB-5 (immigrant investor) regional centers by state. The list will be periodically updated.

USCIS approval of an EB-5 regional center application does not in any way:

  • Constitute USCIS endorsement of the activities of that regional center;
  • Guarantee compliance with U.S. securities laws; or
  • Minimize or eliminate risk to the investor.

Potential investors are encouraged to seek professional advice when making any investment decisions.

USCIS is reviewing inquiries regarding the previously posted Form I-526 and Form I-829 approval and denial statistics by regional center. To provide feedback on that data, please e-mail USCIS.ImmigrantInvestorProgram@uscis.dhs.gov.

Regional centers that have been terminated are listed on the regional center terminations page.
