[Q] How many USCIS designated regional centers are there currently?


As of May 28, 2010, there are nearly 100 USCIS designated regional center programs in the United States, with approximately 50 more designation applications pending. This, in our opinion, is too many regional centers for the existing demand.

However, it should be noted that out of these regional centers, there are only a handful with substantial track record of having obtained I-829 conditions removals, mainly because the regional center EB-5 program has re-started in 2003. In other words, a majority of regional centers have not had sufficient time yet to rack up their track records in I-829 area.
