What is Form I-924?

Form I-924, also known as Initial Application for Regional Center is required by the United States Customs and Immigration Service (USCIS) so a foreigner can invest through a regional center. Under the Immigrant Investor Pilot Program, USCIS must approve Form I-924 in order for the regional center to operate legally.

Form I-924 is also used to request an update to an already-filed and recognized regional center request.
