AIIA has filed a FOIA request with USCIS. The goal of the FOIA request is to inform AIIA members about:

  • Staffing allocation at IPO on three different form types – I526, I829 and I924.
  • USCIS policy and decision-making criteria on holding the pending EB-5 regional center applications in abeyance during the statutory lapse of the RC program.
  • Provide visibility on pending form inventory as of Sept, 2021 organized by country of chargeability. 
  • USCIS processing volumes since program lapse.


The responses to the FOIA request will be available to AIIA members only. This filing is one more step AIIA has taken to put the interests of immigrant-investors first.
