Regional Centers

About the Regional Center Program

In 1990, the EB-5 program originated as a “direct investment” program, but due to its overall complexity and lack of success, the Regional Center program was launched in 1993 to help formalize and popularize the program by permitting investors to pool investments in larger projects.

Regional Centers are organizations with a defined geographic boundary authorized by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), through which EB-5 investor funds are received and managed by a NCE (NCE). Regional Centers promote economic development and job creation within a specific geographic area.

Direct EB-5 Versus Regional Center EB-5

The EB-5 Visa program is a tried-and-true method of U.S. job creation that enables foreigners to seek a green card while investing significant funds into U.S. enterprises. Foreign nationals from many countries pursue the EB-5 path to U.S. residency.

The EB-5 program enables foreign investors to obtain their permanent residency (“green cards”) by investing in a U.S. business. Also referred to as the Employment-Based Immigration: Fifth Preference, EB-5 applicants are typically required to invest either $900,000 or $1.8 million dollars in order to qualify for the program. The applicant’s investment must lead to the creation of 10 fulltime U.S. jobs for a two-year period. After the program has been completed, EB-5 investors, their unmarried children under 21, and their spouse can permanently live and work in the United States.

Within the EB5 program, there are 2 options available to investors, the Direct Investment program and the Pilot Program or the Regional Center Program.
