    The reason for the delay is simply that USCIS has too many I-924 applications and not enough staff to process the applications. The EB-5 community has been trying to fix this problem for the past 2 years and we have not been able to do so. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you.

    Government processing times and adjudications vary and are difficult to predict. with I-924 petitions, the processing times have increased and right now can take 9-12 months. USCIS review and scrutiny of these filings as increased along with the number of pending petitions all contributing to the additional processing times.

    I-924 normally takes 9 month or longer. USCIS wants to be careful and is backlogged with applications.

    Unfortunately government processing delays are becoming more prevalent in EB-5 petitions. At present, the time frame you should consider is 10 - 12 months. For further information please contact Rahbaran & Associates.

    Unfortunately, I-924 applications take up to 10 months to process these days. These are complex applications and USCIS'' processing times for these applications are not readily predictable due to many factors.

    The I-924 application takes between 9 months and 12 months for USCIS to adjudicate. This is due to a backlog of cases at USCIS.

    It''s a great question which is on the minds of us all. The EB-5 unit still needs to be directed by clear and easy to understand policies interpreting the rules and regulations in order to lead to prompt and consistent decisions on I-925 Applications.This will ensure predictability in the decision making process.

    Unfortunately the delays have resulted from a combination of over subscription and bad projects requiring excessive time for reviews.

    I-924 is the actual project to be approved for whether that particular project could really be appropriate for EB-5 investors and whether those I-526 could be approved. USCIS is taking as much as 10 months to review and approve these days.

    USCIS. As with most government agencies, timelines fluctuate.

    Thank you for your email. Processing times require much fact checking by USCIS. There are many steps involved and the government is in no hurry to award a very important benefit without doing its due diligence.

    Because there are many different types of Regional Centers proposals under review at USCIS. Some are readily approvable and others are not, which means there is a variance in processing time.

    9 months is optimistic. We have some pending 2 years. The reasons are many, including USCIS lack of regulations.
