USCIS has recently announced that they will accept adjustment of status applications based on an approved or pending Form I-526, Immigrant Petition by Alien Entrepreneur.
This guidance came after the enactment of the EB-5 Reform and Integrity Act of 2022 on March 15. Though initially speculated by those in the immigration law field, USCIS took some time to release the official guidance that concurrent adjustments would now be adjudicated.
As a reminder, the EB-5 Regional Centers have been reauthorized through September 30, 2027. All pending investor visa applications that have been stuck in a holding period since the lapse of regional center authorization will now continue to be adjudicated by USCIS.
Migration experts at Challa Law say that EB-5 investors located in the United States should apply for their file I-485 adjustment of status to continue their journey to permanent residency.
