Free EB-5 Project Evaluation Is an approved I-526 Petition the same as an exemplar petition?

No, an I-526 Petition submitted by another investor and approved by USCIS does not count as an exemplar petition, which is submitted by the regional center as part of its I-924 Petition to gain regional center status. If, however, USCIS has approved another investor’s I-526 Petition, this means that the project’s business documents have been examined and approved by USCIS, and so the project’s other EB-5 investors can expect I-526 approval as long as their source of funds documents are accepted.
