Getting Started

To learn more about the investment opportunities and the guidance we provide in the EB-5 process, you will need to obtain an Introductory Package. Click here to request an Introductory Package. PLEASE NOTE: Before a package is sent to you, in order to comply with USCIS and other regulations, and to assist you better, you will be asked several brief questions regarding how you learned about the CEIC and the nature of your interest.

Welcome to the California Energy Investment Center!

Our goal at the California Energy Investment Center ("CEIC") is to make your entire EB-5 immigration and investment experience, from application through final approval, as efficient, secure and positive as possible. Here are the simple steps to follow:

  • Step 1: Contact us to receive a copy of the introductory package of materials!
  • Step 2: Please complete the Investor Questionnaire, sign it and return it! The Investor Questionnaire is an essential part of the compliance process required by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USClS). The USCIS requires that we determine you meet certain basic eligibility requirements, including that there is a proper source of your funds.
  • Step 3: Confidential Offering Information and Subscription Package! Once we receive your completed Investor Questionnaire, CEIC's authorized representative will send you full summaries on three (3) approved USCIS energy projects. The CEIC will work with you and your EB-5 Attorney through the application process. There will be clear, step-by-step Guidelines as to the required signatures, acknowledgments and where to return the documents. If you do not have an experienced EB-5 Attorney, please let us know and we can provide referrals.

We have included a one-page flowchart of the immigration process that begins with your immigration petition (I-526). As you will note from this chart, the goal is approval of the I-829 Form, which is the removal of the conditional status of your Visa.

We believe that the CEIC has many advantages, not the least of which is the many years of experience the principals bring to the center. Their involvement in the EB-5 Program since the 1990's and their knowledge of the varied requirements necessary to successfully complete this process has provided valuable assistance to many. We feel confident that we can put this experience to work for you.
