    Current USCIS processing times for the I-526 petition are listed at 9.7 months. Of course, this number is just an average, so any particular petition may take less time or more time.

    USCIS processing times posted online currently note that I-526 petitions filed on or before March 16, 2012 are being adjudicated. However, the posted times are averages and some petitions may be taking longer due to a variety of reasons tied to the EB-5 project and Regional Center, in generally the average appears to be at 9-12 months.

    Thank you for inquiring on the processing times for the I-526 petition. The processing times vary. Last year the processing times were getting expedited, 2-3 months. However, we have noticed a delay of 7 months since September. They fluctuate according to the economic resources of USCIS, how many adjudicators, overtime allowances, number of applications, etc. We are available if you need further information.

    The current processing time for the I-526 petition is about 9-10 months. As of 12/31/2012, USCIS California Service Center was working on the I-526 petitions received before March 16, 2012 according to its published report. However, the processing time is subject to change on a monthly basis depending on the volume of cases the Service receives each month.

    The processing time according to USCIS for I-526 applications is 4-6 months, but as in most ranges, there have been applications that take shorter or longer to adjudicate.

    There is tremendous time variations on government response to such applications mostly due to complexity of case submitted or familiarity of officer with a prereviewed regional center.

    Great Question.There is inconsistency in regard to the time for an adjudication as some I526''s relate to projects which have current EB-5 issues,e.g.tenant occupancy.and they may take longer to adjudicate.
