I invested in a regional center and filed my EB5 case several years ago. It was approved a few months ago, so I filed my I-485 application, along with my EAD application. Will the USCIS continue to adjudicate my applications, even though the regional center program has expired?


For now, the USCIS will not adjudicate any I-485 applications filed based on an I-526 petition, where the investment was made in a regional center. Assuming Congress renews the program, the USCIS is expected to resume processing these I-485 applications.

As for the EAD application (form I-765), it appears that the USCIS will continue to process these, per normal.  (15.Jul.2021)
