Last week U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published updated processing times for the Immigration Investor Program Office. You can review the highlights below:
As of September 2016, the average processing time for I-526 petitions was 14.7 months, a modest 2.1% increase in a year-over-year comparison.
The average processing time for I-829 petitions increased to 22.8 months, up .9 months from the average time in August 2016. On average, it takes 8 months, or 55%, longer to adjudicate an I-829 petition than it did at this time last year.
