USCIS Adjudication Trends

The Pivotal Role of USCIS in EB-5

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) administers the EB-5 Program, adjudicating all petitions and applications related to EB-5 investors and Regional Centers. USCIS plays an essential role in ensuring a thorough and lawful process for qualified investors and stakeholders to participate in the EB-5 Program.

IIUSA offers a variety of resources and insights to inform the EB-5 industry of the latest USCIS adjudication trends, including processing times, approval rates, backlogs, and more.
