How do I buy an Arizona EB-5 Regional Center?

I am interested in purchasing a regional center and participating in the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program. I can assist in raising funds for international investors. Are there any Regional Centers for sale in Arizona?

    There may be. There are many opportunities to meet and network with various regional center owners at events held throughout the country (including many hosted by EB5 Investors Magazine). You also need to consider the project that those investors will be investing into.

    You can contact the representative organizations of the EB-5 industry and advertise the fact your regional center is for sale. Your EB-5 attorney will perform due diligence on the principals of the regional center and determine whether the regional center has been involved in best practices.

    As far as I know, there are no EB-5 Regional Centers in Arizona that are actively for sale. The best way to go about this is to determine which Regional Centers have jurisdiction including Arizona, determine if they are active and if they are not, and to approach them as to their willingness to sell.

    They are all listed on the USCIS website so, technically, you could approach all those listed. As always, be careful in your choices because the USCIS is terminating many for non-activity.

    There is a distinct possibility. However, prior to proceeding on such course, you need address a lot of due diligence issues on whether you can buy one or not, whether the USCIS will authorize such a transfer of ownership, the corporate laws of Arizona, etc. Advisably, consider consulting with an attorney for a thorough vetting of your plan.

    If timing is a huge factor, you may want to look into renting a regional center and then applying for a regional center designation yourself later on.

    Check for a list of the regional centers there and ask them individually if they want to sell to you. Or, better yet, set up your own regional center.
