My EB-5 I-526 was filed on March 3, 2022. The I-485, along with I-765 and I-131, was received by USCIS on April 25. In the case of other visas, the biometrics appointment is scheduled within a few weeks, but I have been waiting for four months now. Are other EB-5 investors experiencing similar delays? What are my options to prompt USCIS to hasten the processing of my EAD and travel document?
All EADs and advance paroles have been very slow. The good news is they are improving with the EADs, but sadly, the advance parole applications remain hopelessly backlogged.
They are taken in order along with all other cases filed at that Service Center. If you fit one of the expedite criteria you can request that on one or the other. Generally, work cards are coming much quicker than the travel permits as they have not separated them.
CIS is taking over a year in all 485s to process the EAD.
Mandamus. It has been extremely effective on EAD delays lately, although past performance does not guarantee future results.
