What is an EB-5 Regional Center?

An EB-5 Regional Center is an entity designated by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to promote economic growth by sponsoring projects to raise EB-5 investment.

There are currently hundreds of approved regional centers, each designated to sponsor projects within a specific geographic area in the United States. USCIS designates a regional center based on an application that explains how the regional center will promote economic growth in its area. To ensure that a designated regional center remains eligible, USCIS reviews its annual reports to verify that it has continued to comply with all applicable laws and authorities.

Over 90% of EB-5 visas issued over the past decade have been for applicants who invested through the regional center program. Learn more about the "Benefits of Working with an EB-5 Regional Center".
