19 Aug USCIS Online Webinar on Annual Certifications by EB-5 Regional Centers
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced an online webinar to take place on Thursday, August 24, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time) to discuss Form I-924A, Annual Certification of Regional Center. This webinar will specifically discuss certain changes to the Dec. 23, 2016 edition of Form I-924A and the accompanying instructions.
EB-5 Regional Centers that receive USCIS approval before September 30, 2017 are required to file Form I-924A, between September 30, 2017 and December 29, 2017. Supporting documents as set out in Form I-924A must be submitted with the form, with specific attention paid to:
Changes to the Regional Center,
Identity of job creating entities,
I-526 and I-829 petition reporting, and
Job creation in-progress.
For the first time, USCIS is charging a filing fee for Form I-924A filings of $3,035 per form. Each reporting Regional Center must file its own separate Form I-924A.
Failure to timely file Form I-924A has been cited by USCIS as cause for termination of an approved Regional Center.
