EB-5 Quarterly Stakeholder Meeting Announced
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ Office of Public Engagement and Service Center Operations Directorate issued a public invitation (PDF) for participants in the upcoming “stakeholder engagement” to discuss the EB-5 immigrant investor program. The next engagement will take place via teleconference on June 30, 2011, at 1 p.m. (Eastern Time), and the deadline to submit agenda items is May 27. The engagement after that will take place on September 15, 2011, via teleconference and also in person in Washington, DC, and the deadline to submit agenda items for the latter meeting is August 15, 2011.
Each engagement will be an opportunity for USCIS to share information on the EB-5 program and address stakeholder’s related topics of interest. USCIS noted that there will be an open forum for questions and answers at each of these engagements, but the agency will not address case-specific inquiries.
