2012/03/08 -- Operational Guidance on EB-5 Adjudications Involving Tenant Occupancy Methodology

Due to many complaints from stakeholders, USCIS today issued its Operational Guidance on Tenant Occupancy Methodology to try clarify the deference USCIS examiners should give to prior adjudications.


What if USCIS approved some I-526s for a regional center based EB-5 project, will they approve other I-526s?

How about those regional centers which were designated without going through the I-924 designation procedure?

What if the regional center application did not contain a specifically-identified project but a hypothetical or exemplar project whose parameters did not change?
