How can I speed up my second consular interview for my EB-5 visa?

My I-526 form for my EB-5 visa was approved in July 2017. The consulate interview was in February 2019 and the case went into AP. In February 2020, I received an email from the Mumbai consulate to schedule the second consular interview, which was scheduled for April 2020. Unfortunately, my case got stuck due to Covid and later on the wait for the regional center authorization. The reply to my query was: “Your case is currently under review. We will contact you via Visa Application Center once the same is complete. No further action is required from you, at this time.” It has been almost 6 weeks since this reply. What should I do next?

Six weeks is not a long time. Try and be patient. After a few months, if they are non-responsive, maybe consider a mandamus action.

All you can do is inquire on a regular basis or perhaps get your Congressperson to make a call.

More facts would be needed how your interview went that might shed light on why the case possibly went into administrative processing. Have your attorney inquire on your case.

The best option is to continue to contact the US Consulate through email, seeking status updates.
