How to apply...
The insurance program has a two-step application process. Investors must first register their projects with OPIC before making an irrevocable commitment to invest. Once the details of the investment have been established, an application for insurance coverage is filed. OPIC charges a retainer fee after the submission of an application for insurance in order to proceed with review of the project. Registration and application forms are available on request from the Insurance Applications Officer, Overseas Private Investment Corporation, 1100 New York Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20527, or on OPIC's website: www.opic.gov.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
Insurance is issued directly to the applicant by OPIC, or through a broker if the investor so chooses.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
