AILA Requests Clarifying Guidance from IPO Regarding I-765 and I-131 Adjudications for EB-5 Investors

8/10/21 AILA Doc. No. 21081132. Business Immigration, EB-5 Investors

On 8/10/21, AILA sent a letter to the Immigrant Investor Program Office (IPO) requesting clarifying guidance for I-765 and I-131 applications filed by EB-5 regional center investors with pending regional center-affiliated Forms I-485. Specifically, AILA urged USCIS to continue accepting and adjudicating Form I-765 and I-131 applications for EB-5 investors with pending regional center-affiliated Form I-485s as such applications are eligible for adjudication and upon approval, the employment authorization document (EAD) and advance parole (AP) travel document may be issued, notwithstanding the temporary lapse in authorization of the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Regional Center Program.

Special thanks to EB-5 Committee members David Morris and Matt Galati for their contributions.
