System Updates and Announcements
All initial registration statements must be submitted online using the new FARA eFile system. Any registrant who has registered under the new eFile registration system must continue to submit all FARA filings using the new platform. This upgraded filing system allows registrants to submit data through a self-guided, web-based questionnaire, rather than uploading PDFs.
Registrants who registered under FARA prior to September 23, 2019, will continue to submit FARA filings to the FARA Unit by uploading PDFs. In the coming months, we will update you when the next phase is complete and all FARA filings will be submitted on the new platform.
To learn more about the new eFile registration system, review the Instructions for New Registrants.
