IMMIGRANT INVESTOR REGIONAL CENTERS
A regional center is an economic development agency devoted to new job creation in a specific geographic region. These agencies or organizations must apply for this status and be approved by the U.S. government. Individuals seeking an EB-5 visa can select to invest in a regional center rather than a new business.
Currently, there are 75 regional centers throughout more than 20 states. At Jonathan A. Bartell, Attorney with Margaret W. Wong & Associates, we have extensive experience providing legal advice and guidance to treaty investors. We have a detailed knowledge of immigrant investor regional centers and can provide valuable insight to our clients regarding the process, requirements and obstacles.

EB-5 Regional Center Investment
Regional centers can invest in a wide range of local organizations and businesses, including health care facilities, manufacturing plants, shopping centers and office development. The process of regional center investment tends to be less challenging than the standard treaty investor process. There tends to be fewer obstacles and less of a time commitment. A skilled attorney can answer complex questions and explain how the EB-5 regional center investment process can work in your situation.
Regional center investment benefits can include lower investment levels, flexible job creation measures and less day-to-day business involvement. These benefits can be attractive to busy international investors. Do not hesitate to contact our office to learn more about your options for regional center investment.
