What should I do if I find mistakes in my EB-5 filing?

I am a South Korean EB-5 investor. Six months ago, my migration agency completed all I-526 documents. My immigration attorney in the U.S. reviewed them and submitted them to USCIS. Recently, when I reviewed my filing copies, I found some mistakes in my resume. Some information about my educational history is missing. I am afraid that I will get an RFE because of that. What should I do now?

    You will have to wait to see if an RFE is issued. Having a discrepancy in educational background for an EB-5 should not merit an RFE.

    An error in your resume should not result in an RFE unless it triggers some questioning on your source of funds. But regardless, it is always a good idea to send in a corrected resume through interfiling with USCIS.

    The items you identified below are not likely to result in an RFE unless they contradict the SOF materials. Your attorney can interfile or simply wait to see if an RFE is issued.

    Generally, you should review a petition before executing same and prior to submission to USCIS to ensure all information is accurate. Missing educational history in your resume will likely not impact your I-526 case unless your education history is relevant to your lawful source of funds. However, to be prudent, you should ask your immigration attorney in the U.S. to interfile a corrected resume with a cover letter explaining the omitted information, if it is relevant. Interfiled documents are not 100 percent guaranteed to end up in your pending case, but if they are interfiled, this reduces a chance of RFE, assuming the information is relevant to warrant an RFE.

    Send a corrected resume to your immigration attorney and he/she can interfile this with the receipt.

    Send USCIS a corrected resume.
