[HOT] Our take on EB-5 area as of May 18, 2014
With over 450 designated RCs trying to capture less than 3,500 EB-5 cases per year, the EB-5 has become a very competitive area. There are currently more SEC restrictions than most RCs are aware or can reasonably follow, and it appears most EB-5 clients are retained outside the United States intentionally.
While the demand has increased and the outlines of the EB-5 law has been clarified, the processing times for I-526 and I-829 cases have not improved all that much.
We would say around ten RCs still capture over 80% of the EB-5 cases out there, 85% of which are from China. Without Chinese EB-5 cases, the EB-5 area would be dead, and USCIS would have to lay-off most of its trained EB-5 staffs.
