    There are different options in regard to the preparation and filing of an Application for Regional Center designation. Some options are faster than others.An estimation of time for adjudication of the Application may be from 4 to 7 months.Please note there may be further time delays caused by new EB5 policies. Please seek an experienced immigration attorney to assist in the preparation and filing of the I-924 Application.

    The current processing times for an initial regional center designation application filed with USCIS is 9 months. Amendments to already approved regional center designations are currently taking 10 months to process. At its May 1, 2012, EB-5 Stakeholders meeting, the USCIS stated that their target processing time for these petitions is 4 months. Unfortunately, the Agency did not indicate how long it would take them to achieve their goal of reducing the lengthy adjudication times.
