Immigrant Investor Program

A report released by the General Accounting Office report provides detailed information on the immigrant investor program (EB-5 visa). The report is chock full of information, including an overview of the EB-5 application process, number of EB-5 visas issued by year, characteristics of immigrant investors who apply for the E-5 visa, and disadvantages/advantages of the EB-5 visa. This report is a worthwhile read for anyone considering whether to apply under the immigrant investor program.

Dear Editor:
Can you please enlighten me as to the process of appealing or a motion to reconsider? Am I in a better situation appealing a denied application or should I just have applied anew? Immigration law is very confusing to me, so please help me to understand.


Dear Editor:
According to the DOL website all Labor Certification applications with local office receipt dates up to the end of 2004 should have been shipped to the Backlog Processing Centers by now. Does anyone have any information about how far the Backlog Processing Centers have got in sending out 45 day notices? My concern is that if any files are misplaced or 45 Day Notices are sent to the wrong address or lost in the mail then the applicants will have no idea that there is a problem until it is too late (to reply to the 45 Day Notice). The Philadelphia Backlog Reduction Center has requested that attorneys refrain from asking for status (except in emergency cases) as this is increasing their workload. However, without any information about the progress of sending out the 45 Day Notices there is no way of telling if your application is in an 'emergency' status.
