Updated EB-5 Processing Times Announced by USCIS

Summary

USCIS recently published updated processing times for the Immigrant Investor Program Office.

July 18, 2016


Updated times are as follows:

  • I-526 Immigrant Petition by Alien Entrepreneur: 16.6 months
  • I-829 Petition by Entrepreneur to Remove Conditions: 20.1 months
  • I-924 Application for Regional Center: 9.9 months
  • Processing for I-829 petitions has increased simply due to more petitions being submitted because of investors reaching the end of two year conditional status. Please be aware that some I-924 petitioners have noted that their cases have exceeded the 9.9 months processing time period.

    Please remember that I-526 applicants can check their case status online and can also email USCIS for updates regarding petitions exceeding the above processing times.
