[Q] Is regional center program limited to only 3,000 IV numbers per annum?


USCIS interprets the set aside of visas to ensure that a minimum of 3,000 visas are available for regional center based applicants. We do not see the set aside as limiting the number of visas that can be granted to regional center based applicants.

This is a good news for regional center program; therefore, up to 10,000 IV numbers per annum is available to regional center cases. Assuming an average family number of 4 members per 1 family, this means a maximum of 2,500 families per annum can obtain immigrant visas via regional center EB-5 program.
