How are EB-5 investors notified when their I-526 applications are approved?

I applied for EB-5 over two years ago and I am expecting to get a result soon. For work-related reasons, I need to travel to another country for a couple of months and might have limited access to my phone and email. I am afraid I might miss the notification from USCIS when I am away. How does USCIS usually notify EB-5 investors of the adjudication results? Do they contact investors or their attorneys?

Both the investor and investor&#39s attorney are notified on Form I-797, which is mailed to the address on record.

They will usually contact both. Plus, you can check the status of your case online with a receipt number.

If there is a G-28 entered by the attorney, USCIS usually notifies with a courtesy copy to the attorney as well as a notice to investor/applicant.

You will both be notified. If you are going to be away and have not arranged for email or text notification, you should be in touch with your attorney while you are away.

USCIS will mail the notice of action (approval notice, RFE notice, NOID or denial notice) to the address on file and/or to the attorney of record if the petitioner is represented by legal counsel.

Your attorney will receive a copy as well. Make sure you stay in touch with your attorney so if she/he receives a notice from the USCIS, he can reach you for further actions if necessary.

The attorney will be mailed an approval notice, and you will be mailed an approval notice at the address they have on file. If you moved, you can go to the USCIS website to update your address (which you should be doing as soon as you make the move anyway). You can also get electronic case updates at the USCIS website with your receipt number.

You can check case status online. Also, the petitioner and petitioner&#39s attorney both get copies of the I-526 approval notice.

Both you and your attorney will receive the notice in the mail. You can also monitor the case&#39s status online.

USCIS sends approval notices to the attorneys and usually the investors too. You can regularly check online as well, although their online system is not always up to date.

When your I-526 petition is approved, USCIS sends an approval notice to you and your attorney of record. You may also sign up for email or text notifications regarding your case status online at uscis.gov. If USCIS issues a request for additional evidence before it makes a decision on your case, then it sends RFE to your attorney of record. Your attorney should notify you when a status of your case changes.

Typically, USCIS will mail an approval notice to both the EB-5 investor and their attorney.
