IIUSA Submits Comments and Questions to USCIS Ahead of October 19 EB-5 Stakeholder Engagement

U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) announced earlier this month that it would hold an EB-5 Stakeholder Engagement on October 19, 2022. Ahead of the engagement, USCIS invited the EB-5 community to submit questions and comments for consideration to address at the event. With input from IIUSA’s Public Policy Committee and other IIUSA members, IIUSA submitted a letter to USCIS that outlines pressing issues, concerns, and questions of the EB-5 industry.

The letter can be read in full here, but some of the topics addressed include (but are not limited to):

  • Processing times
  • IPO coordination of adjudications
  • Preponderance of evidence standards
  • Program data availability
  • Redress vehicles for simple issues or improper rejections
  • Inter-filings

IIUSA is aware there are many more topics that the EB-5 industry would like addressed that may not be included in this letter. IIUSA is separately mobilizing its members to provide thoughts and guidance about implementation of the EB-5 Reform and Integrity Act of 2022. This letter does not address those issues as we wanted to not only provide questions and comments but thoughtful guidance on these very important topics to ensure the integrity measures included in the Act are effectively implemented. IIUSA believes it can be of assistance to USCIS and welcomes any and all opportunities to engage with USCIS, as the trade association for regional centers representing a broad spectrum of EB-5 stakeholders.

Thank you to IIUSA’s Public Policy Committee and the other members who contributed to the drafting of this letter. The input and engagement of our members is the most critical component to ensuring we as the EB-5 industry’s trade association, represent you, our members, in the most effective manner possible.

If you have not yet registered for the USCIS EB-5 Stakeholder Engagement, you can do so on the USCIS registration page.
