Instructions for Form I-956K,  
Registration for Direct and Third-Party Promoters  
Form I-956K  
OMB No. 1615-0159  
Expires 07/31/2025  
Department of Homeland Security  
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services  
What Is the Purpose of Form I-956K?  
The Form I-956K, Registration for Direct and Third-Party Promoters, must be completed by each person acting as a  
direct or third-party promoter (including migration agents) of a regional center, any new commercial enterprise (NCE),  
an affiliated job-creating entity (JCE), or an issuer of securities intended to be offered to alien investors in connection  
with a particular capital investment project and is participating in the Regional Center Program. This includes subagents  
or employees of entities with agreements in place to promote a regional center, any new commercial enterprise, an  
affiliated job-creating entity, or an issuer of securities intended to be offered to alien investors that are promoting the  
regional center, new commercial enterprise, affiliated job-creating entity, or issuer of securities to alien investors.  
Regional centers, new commercial enterprises and job-creating entities do not need to separately file a Form I-956K if  
they are involved solely in the promotion of any offering of securities associated with such entities in a related filing  
such as Form I-956F.  
When Must the Form I-956K Be Filed?  
A promoter should submit Form I-956K before operating on behalf of any of the specified entities or promoting any  
offering under the EB-5 Regional Center Program. The promoter must submit Form I-956K separate from the Form  
I-956F, Application for Approval of an Investment in a Commercial Enterprise, to seek approval of an investment in a  
commercial enterprise.  
Any promoter employed to work as a promoter or otherwise engaged as a promoter on behalf of another promoter  
(including an entity) must submit Form I-956K and complete Part 2. about themselves and Part 3. to indicate the  
individual or entity employing them as a promoter. Part 2., Item Number 20., provides an area for these types of  
promoters to provide the necessary information for registration and provide USCIS information about the entity or  
individual that employs them.  
A promoter must file an amendment if the list of entities identified in Part 3., Item Number 2. on the promoter's initial  
Form I-956K registration changes, either by the promoter entering into, terminating, or amending an agreement with an  
entity. The amendment must identify all entities the promoter currently operates on behalf of and not just the entity(ies)  
added or removed.  
General Instructions  
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) provides forms free of charge through the USCIS website. To view,  
print, or fill out our forms, you should use the latest version of Adobe Reader, which you can download for free at  
http://get.adobe.com/reader/. If you do not have internet access, you may call the USCIS Contact Center at  
1-800-375-5283 (TTY 1-800-767-1833) and ask that we mail a form to you. The USCIS Contact Center provides  
information in English and Spanish.  
Signature. Each form must be properly signed and filed. For all signatures on this form, USCIS will not accept a  
stamped or typewritten name in place of a signature. If you are under 14 years of age, your parent or legal guardian may  
sign the form on your behalf. A legal guardian may also sign for a mentally incompetent person. If the form is not signed  
or if the requisite signature on the form is not valid, USCIS will reject the form. See 8 CFR 103.2(a)(7)(ii)(A). If USCIS  
accepts a form for registration and determines that it has a deficient signature, USCIS will reject the underlying  
Form I-956K Instructions 07/24/23  
Validity of Signatures. USCIS will consider a photocopied, faxed, or scanned copy of the original handwritten signature  
valid for filing purposes. The photocopy, fax, or scan must be of the original document containing the handwritten ink  
Filing Fee. Each form must be accompanied by the appropriate filing fee. (See the What Is the Filing Fee section of  
these Instructions.)  
Evidence. At the time of filing, you must submit all evidence and supporting documents listed in the Specific  
Instructions section of these Instructions.  
Biometric Services Appointment. USCIS may require that you appear for an interview or provide biometrics  
(fingerprints, photograph, and/or signature) at any time to verify your identity, obtain additional information, and conduct  
background and security checks. After USCIS receives your form and ensures it is complete, we will inform you if you  
need to attend a biometric services appointment. If an appointment is necessary, the notice will provide you the location  
of your local or designated USCIS Application Support Center (ASC) and the date and time of your appointment or, if  
you are currently overseas, instruct you to contact a U.S. Embassy, U.S. Consulate, or USCIS office outside the United  
States to set up an appointment. USCIS may use your biometrics to obtain the criminal history records of the Federal  
Bureau of Investigation (FBI), for identity verification, to determine eligibility, to create immigration documents (for  
example, Permanent Resident Card, Employment Authorization Document), or any purpose authorized by the  
Immigration and Nationality Act. You may obtain a copy of your own FBI record using the procedures outlined at 28  
CFR 16.32. For information, please visit: https://www.fbi.gov/services/cjis/identity-history-summary-checks. For  
Copies. You should submit legible photocopies of documents requested, unless the Instructions specifically state that you  
must submit an original document. USCIS may request an original document at the time of filing or at any time during  
processing of a registration, application, form, or petition. If USCIS requests an original document from you, it will be  
returned to you after USCIS determines it no longer needs your original.  
NOTE: If you submit original documents when not required or requested by USCIS, your original documents may be  
immediately destroyed after we receive them.  
Translations. If you submit a document with information in a foreign language, you must also submit a full English  
translation. The translator must sign a certification that the English language translation is complete and accurate, and that  
he or she is competent to translate from the foreign language into English. The certification must include the translator's  
signature, printed name, the signature date, and the translator's contact information.  
How to Fill Out Form I-956K

Form I-956K Instructions 07/24/23  
4. USCIS Online Account Number. Providing the registrant's unique USCIS Online Account Number (OAN) helps  
them manage their online account. Registrants have an Online Account Number if they previously filed a registration,  
application, petition, or request online or by mail and were issued a receipt number that begins with IOE. If the  
registrant filed a form online, they can find their OAN in their USCIS Online Account profile. If they mailed their  
form, they can find their OAN at the top of the USCIS Account Access Notice we sent them. The OAN is not the  
same as an A-Number. If the registrant does not have a receipt number beginning with IOE, they do not have an OAN.  
Specific Instructions  
Part 1. Type of Registration  
Item Number 1. Select the type of registration. If this is an initial registration, identify the type of promoter being  
registered (select all that apply).  
Item Number 2. If this is an amendment to a previously filed registration, include the registration number of the  
promoter and complete all remaining parts of the form.  
Item Number 3. Amendment Type. If the Form I-956K you are filing is an amendment, select the appropriate box to  
indicate the type of changes being requested by your amendment. NOTE: Your amendment must continue to provide  
the names and information of all entities with which you currently maintain a written agreement in the table in Part 3.,  
Item Number 2. at the time of filing the amendment.

3. You must confirm the existence of any written agreement required by the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA)  
section 203(b)(5)(K)(iii) by describing such agreement in the relevant part and submitting a copy of such agreement  
with this form. If you are an employee of a promoter engaging in promotional activities on its behalf and your  
employer has submitted its own Form I-956K along with copies of relevant written agreements, you may reference that  
filing and any relevant agreements without submitting a copy of such agreements. If you are not an employee of a  
promoter but have otherwise been engaged to conduct promotional activities on its behalf, such as a subagent, and the  
primary promoter has submitted its own Form I-956K along with copies of relevant written agreements, you may  
reference that filing and any relevant agreements without submitting a copy of such agreements but you must also  
describe and include any written agreements you have entered into with the primary promoter and/or regional center,  
new commercial enterprise, and affiliated job-creating entity in accordance with INA section 203(b)(5)(K)(iii).
