Το USCIS ενημερώνει τον τρέχοντα κατάλογο τερματισμένων περιφερειακών κέντρων
On January 9, 2015, the USCIS updated its list of terminated EB-5 Regional Centers. Regional centers can be terminated or revoked for a variety of reasons, such as failing to file an annual report (called the I-924A), failing to promote economic grown (which may be because the regional center is dormant is unable to fund projects as it desired), or other ineligibility reasons such as fraud, misapplication of law, or other violations. As an attorney licensed in the State of Florida, it is always interesting to see a Florida-based regional center on this list (including one which was highly promoted in the past).
More regional centers will undoubtedly be terminated in the future. Being able to anticipate which center may be in dire straits can be difficult to predict if the regional center is not required to make its annual I-924A filings public. With this in mind, I hope to have more information in the near future about all regional centers in order to provide better guidance to EB-5 investors who need to know more about a potential regional center. While investors should consult financial advisers, immigration attorneys need to also be part of the analysis to review an investor’s desired regional center for compliance with USCIS EB-5 rules and regulations.
Here’s the current list of terminated or revoked regional centers:
