Back in October, IIUSA looked at the California Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) recently launched EB-5 portal to expedite the application process for certifying Targeted Employment Areas (TEAs).
Within the GO-Biz, the International Affairs and Business Development unit is charged with implementing the State of California’s EB5 foreign investor program. This program not only administers TEA designation letters, but promotes the state’s EB5 visa program to foreign investors and manages the EB-5 Regional Center information on behalf of the State of California.
As part of its mission, Go-Biz also conducts an annual survey on the state’s Regional Centers which list the Regional Center contact information, website, number of completed projects, job creation, total foreign direct investment and number of I-526/I-829 petition approvals. To view/download this spreadsheet, visit the Go-Biz EB-5 Portal here.
Any questions for the International Affairs and Business Development unit should be directed to EB5info@gov.ca.gov.
