The USCIS California Service Center (CSC), which processes EB-5 Immigrant Investor Petitions, has released processing times:
Last week Charlie W. Oppenheim, Chief of Immigrant Control & Reporting of the State Department, indicated that the EB-5 employment-based visa category would remain current for the foreseeable future. This comes after speculation that EB-5 China might retrogress due to heavy demand in the EB-5 China category. Mr. Oppenheim further indicated that EB-5 availability might be affected in the June or July 2014 Visa Bulletin and that he would try to provide notice one or two months ahead of any retrogression.
