U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) aims “to understand challenges and pain points of the application or petition process” concerning the EB-5, and has invited attorneys, accredited representatives, regional center owners, and petitioners to provide information about their experiences filing for regional center designations under the Immigrant Investor Program (I-924), annual certifications of regional centers (I-924A), or petitions by alien entrepreneurs (I-526).
USCIS specifically wants feedback from:
- Representatives who have filed petitions or applications related to the EB-5 program in the last 12 months and work for a law firm with five or more employees;
- Regional center owners who have filed regional center applications or annual certifications in the last 12 months; and
- Petitioners who have filed a petition related to the EB-5 program in the last 12 months.
Per USCIS, those with questions or who are interested should email firstname.lastname@example.org and include the emailer’s experience with EB-5 filings and role in the submission process; case-specific information should not be included. Some may be asked to participate in a group discussion.
