USCIS Provides Guidance As EB-5 Regional Center Program Lapses on June 30, 2021

The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Regional Center Program will expire on June 30, 2021, unless Congress reauthorizes it.

A lapse in authorization does not affect EB-5 petitions filed by investors who are not seeking a visa under the Regional Center Program.

USCIS will reject Form I-924 and I-526 received on or after July 1, 2021, related to the regional center program. Further, USCIS will not act on any pending petition or application on these form types that is dependent on a lapsed statutory authority until further notice.
