EB-5 Update

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announces the launch of an EB-5 Regional Center Compliance Audit Program

Regional center compliance audits are an additional way to enhance EB-5 program integrity and verify information in regional center applications and annual certifications. Under this program, USCIS will collect case-specific data as part of a compliance audit.

It also verifies compliance with applicable laws and authorities to ensure continued eligibility for the regional center designation.
