Earlier this year, IIUSA launched its new EB-5 Investor Markets Data Portal which provides our members with access to the association’s extensive data and industry intelligence on 94 EB-5 investor markets around the globe. Since the portal was released, more than 700 members have used this new resource and the number keeps growing.
In September 2020, we updated this members-only resource with even more comprehensive data on EB-5 investor marketplaces. Here are the top 5 updates that were just released this month:
1.Country-Specific I-526 Processing Time Data
The new data portal now features insights of country-specific I-526 processing times based on our analysis of more than 9,600 I-526 cases that were adjudicated in fiscal year (FY) 2017 Q3, FY 2018 Q3 and FY 2019 Q1. The “Data Highlights” section tells you the processing time distribution in any EB-5 market when compared to the worldwide average, while the dynamic data chart on the left visualizes the processing time trends over time.
2. Average I-526 Approval Rates by Investor Market
Based on our analysis of nearly 32,500 I-526 approvals and denials in FY 2016, FY 2017, FY 2018 and FY 2019, we added the country-specific average I-526 approval rates. The interactive chart presents the trends of I-526 approval rates for each market in comparison to the worldwide average, while “Data Highlights” summarizes the results of the analysis.
3. I-526 Filings by Quarter
Another valuable statistic that has been added to the data portal is the number of I-526 filings by quarter between FY 2014 and FY 2019 (through Q3). With such detailed I-526 filing data, you can conduct a more in-depth analysis, such as how major events (i.e. reauthorization of the EB-5 Regional Center Program) affected the filings of I-526 cases in each market.
4. A New Mini Menu Allows You to Easily View Data for Different Markets
This new mini menu makes it easy and convenient for you to switch the market of your interest and brings you comprehensive statistics and interactive data charts with just one click.
In addition to these exciting new features, the data portal also includes other country-specific intelligence for more than 90 EB-5 markets, including:
- Number of I-526 filings;
- Number of EB-5 visa usage;
- IIUSA’s professional network in each important EB-5 market;
- Upcoming EB-5 events; and
- Expert insights and research on EB-5 investor market;
