American Life is the Longest Continuous Operating Regional Center Program in the U.S.

The legitimacy and experience of the regional center you select can have a huge impact on whether or not your visa is approved. That’s why we recommend all investors conduct detailed due diligence when it comes to their regional center, from checking that they are an approved regional center on the USCIS website to investigating the projects they’ve completed. 

As the longest operating regional center program in the U.S. with over 45 projects completed, you can rest assured that you are working with a legitimate partner that has your best interests in mind.

What is an EB-5 regional center?

An EB-5 regional center is a private organization pre-designated by the U.S. government for participation in the Immigrant Investor program. A regional center is authorized to pool investments from multiple EB-5 investors, and oversee its use in compliance with the EB-5 program.

How can I tell if an EB-5 regional center is legitimate?

You can head to the USCIS website https://www.uscis.gov/ and check if the regional center you are considering is listed as an approved EB-5 immigrant investor regional center. You can also see if they are a registered member with IIUSA https://iiusa.org/.

How much experience does American Life have as a regional center?

American Life operates the longest established approved regional center with USCIS https://www.uscis.gov/. With over 45 commercial real estate projects under our belt, you can feel confident that you’re getting a trustworthy and knowledgeable partner on your EB-5 journey.

How do I tell if a specific project has been registered with USCIS?

An EB-5 promoter will file an I-956F application for project approval with USCIS documenting the specifics of the actual project, including information on the regional center, job creation, and other details of the project. The EB-5 promoter should provide you a copy of the I-797 receipt for this filing.

How do I know if enough jobs will be created to support my EB-5 application?

An EB-5 project should be able to provide you with an economic study, authored by an independent professional economist with experience in EB-5, clearly documenting the U.S. jobs that will be created by the EB-5 project you are considering investing in.

What else should I ask a regional center for as I complete my due diligence?

Additional helpful items to request include evidence of previous I-526 and I-829 approvals from the regional center.
