WordPress tells me that not many people clicked on my link from last post to USCIS’s published Q&A from the 2/26/2014 EB-5 Stakeholder Meeting. So here’s another chance. This is really a good Q&A, with substantive responses on hot button issues including Regional Center sales, redemption agreements, deference, asset purchase, Census Tract aggregation, evidence at I-829 of model direct jobs, for-profit activities, guest expenditure jobs, bridge financing, hypothetical plan content, and geographic range of a Regional Center. I learned more from this written Q&A than I learned from listening to the meeting itself. I’m also bookmarking the page for the 9/10/2014 EB-5 Stakeholder Meeting, which will eventually also be updated with USCIS’s meeting notes.  In the meantime, Robert Divine and Melanie Walker have the best summary so far of key issues from the 9/10 meeting.

And USCIS has updated its Regional Center list.

    Hi, Thks for information updates on EB5 .Please check I526 Processing Time Frame Page on USCIS SITE as they mention ; generally cases are processed in order they (USCIS) Receive ;. But it seems there has been more cases pending to process I526 application above processing time mentioned (uscis site) for IMMIGRANT applicant’s STAYING abroad than off Adjustment of status applicant . Why ?? Please can you help to get monthly list of I526 pending application status.
