On May 4, 2015, our offices received an approval notice of I-526 petition for an EB-5 client through Regional Center, invested in the Four Season Hotel Project. The petition was filed on November 6, 2014, and was duly approved on May 4, 2015.
The I-526 approval was granted promptly within merely 6 months, comparing to the current processing time of 14 months.
On August 23, 2014, at the AILA EB-5 Conference in Chicago, Charles Oppenheim, Chief of the Department of State Immigrant Visa Control and Reporting Division, announced that effective immediately, the EB-5 preference category had become “unavailable” for Chinese applicants.
