USCIS Presentation on EB-5

USCIS prepared a useful PowerPoint presentation for the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program Stakeholder meeting in Washington, DC on June 16. Topics of interest include:

  • A concise and helpful overview of the EB-5 program and its requirements
  • EB-5 visa, Regional Center, and case processing statistics
  • Introduction to the proposed Form I-924 and I-924A (for Regional Center application and yearly reporting)
  • Updates on EB-5 Premium Processing (not to be offered), EB-5 Inquiries (webpage and email address available), EB-5 Expedite Requests (conditions explained), and Public Law 106-273 (resolution still pending)
  • Advice for the Regional Center application economic analysis and business plans
  • Definitions of and distinctions between “commercial enterprises” and “capital investment projects.”
  • Questions related to Targeted Employment Area designation, material changes after I-526 approval, job creation, and troubled businesses.

This presentation was distributed by email to meeting attendees, but has not yet been made available on the USCIS website.
