On November 17, 2015, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released updated processing times for three forms associated with the EB5 Immigrant Investor Program.1 The chart shows the average processing times for the Form I-526, Form I-829, and Form I-924 as of September 30, 2015. While the chart provides the average processing time for each form, some cases may take longer for USCIS to process. I have included the chart below for your convenience.
