Free EB-5 Project Evaluation How long does it take for USCIS to adjudicate an investor’s I-526 Petition after the project receives exemplar status?

It is impossible to know how long USCIS will take to adjudicate any given petition; this remains true even if a project obtains exemplar status. If an investor’s I-526 Petition has been pending longer than the current average processing time, the investor’s attorney should ask for a status update and, if applicable, indicate that the project has received exemplar status. An investor living in the U.S. on a nonimmigrant visa should not make plans based on a hoped-for adjudication date since there are no guarantees of when a petition will be adjudicated.
