Reno is the county seat of Washoe County, Nevada. Reno is the third-largest city in the state after Las Vegas and Henderson, and the largest outside of Clark County. Reno is about 26 miles north of the Nevada state capital, Carson City, and 2.0 miles northeast of Lake Tahoe.
Reno, known as “The Biggest Little City in the World”, is famous for its casinos, and is the birthplace of the gaming corporation Harrah’s Entertainment.
Carson City is the capital of the State of Nevada. Since Nevada became a state in 1864, Carson City was confirmed as the permanent capital. Carson City’s development was no longer dependent on the mining industry and instead became a thriving commercial center. The Virginia & Truckee Railroad was built between Virginia City and Carson City. The current capitol building was constructed from 1870-1871.
In 1991, the city adopted a downtown master plan, specifying that no building within 500 feet of the capital is allowed to pass it in height, which prohibits future high-rise development in the center of downtown.
What is a Regional Center
A Regional Center is the entity, organization or agency that focuses on a specific geographic area within the United States in order to promote economic growth. Most Regional Centers are in Targeted Employment Areas (TEA’s), that have an unemployment rate that is at least 1.5 times higher than the national average.
The number of people obtaining lawful permanent residency or “Green Cards” through the employment-based fifth (EB-5) preference category is increasing rapidly. Most EB-5 Green Cards are filled through Regional Centers. These Regional Centers are designated by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to attract immigrant investors in specific geographic areas. These Regional Centers do not guarantee profit or the return of an investor’s principal investment.
For foreign investors looking for freedom and flexibility to live and work in the United States in a way accommodating to their lifestyles, the EB-5 investor category can provide an excellent opportunity to accomplish this goal through the obtaining of Green Cards.
The EB-5 Regional Center Program allows a person and his or her immediate family members to obtain a Green Card (i.e. live permanently in the U.S.) by investing US $500,000 into a Regional Center investment project located in a Targeted Employment Area (TEA), for the purpose of creating and or saving jobs.

- Step 2: If interested in investing in the project, the investor signs the Subscription Agreement and other requested documents and provides financial and background information to the NREDC for review. The investor also deposits US$500,000 in a secure escrow account with Citibank and pays an administrative fee to the NREDC.
- Step 3: The investor’s attorney prepares and files the I-526 Petition with the USCIS.
- Step 4: If the I-526 Petition is approved, the US$500,000 in the secure escrow account is unconditionally released and invested in the project. If the application is denied by USCIS, the full US$500,000 investment is promptly refunded to the investor from the secure Citibank escrow account.
- Step 5: Following approval of the I-526 Petition, the investor will be given a U.S. Consular Interview in the investor’s home country or if the investor resides in the U.S., receive an adjustment of status.
