As predicted, the latest USCIS statistics prove that delays look certain and there won't be any retrogression in the EB-5 visa program.

I had a look at the USCIS website for processing times and it seems that as I'd predicted last year, there are only going to be processing delays for the EB-5 visa and no retrogression due to the increased scrutiny from the USCIS. It's sad some attorneys with big mouths and a shortage of brains fail to see the big picture and just go around crying "Wolf", in an attempt to drum up more business.

The delay is quite pronounced in the case of regional centers due to the fact that regional center sponsored EB-5 visa petitions are now being extensively scrutinized due to fraud, securities law violations and money laundering concerns. The other reason why retrogression is highly unlikely (if not impossible) is due to the fact that regional centers will be shut out of the EB-5 visa program from October 2015 onwards, and that means everyone who applied for an EB-5 visa through regional centers will need to apply again for Direct Investments.

EB-5 visa investors need to remember that the ONLY safe way to get approved is through Genuine Direct Investment Businesses.

Here are some of the critical reasons that EB-5 visa investors should ALWAYS choose Genuine Direct Investment Businesses and avoid regional centers:
·         In a Genuine Direct Investment Business, it is quite unusual to encounter fraud or conflict of interest. This alone is THE biggest reason why EB-5 visa investors usually experience capital loss if they opt for regional centers or unsafe Direct Investments (such as Voodoo or Marcos Pizza), while those who opt for Genuine Direct Investment Businesses usually NEVER experience capital loss.
·         EB-5 visa investors who choose Genuine Direct Investment Businesses usually earn annual ROI of 15% to 40%, while those who select regional centers usually earn 0-2% annual ROI.
Genuine Direct Investment Businesses offer easy exit strategies to EB-5 visa investors while those who invest in regional centers experience TERRIBLE exit strategies. 
·         Regional Centers usually commit securities fraud and securities law violations while this is usually unheard of in Genuine Direct Investment Businesses. 
·         EB-5 visa investors usually get capital gains if they invest in a Genuine Direct Investment Business and almost NEVER get capital gains if they invest in a regional center. 
·         EB-5 visa investors in Genuine Direct Investment Businesses usually see faster processing and approval of their petitions, while it takes much longer for EB-5 visa investors to get their immigrant visa through regional centers. 
·         EB-5 visa investors in Genuine Direct Investment Businesses have a higher chance of getting their permanent green card, while those who opt for regional centers have a lower chance of getting their green card.
