USCIS updated its processing times for the Immigrant Investor Program Office on Feb. 11, 2015. Unfortunately, the news is not welcome. Processing times ticked up slightly to 14 months for I-526 Petitions, 11.4 months for I-829 Petitions and 11.1 months for I-924 Applications. The I-924 Application processing time has risen a full seven months from a low of four months in June 2014. However, I-526 Petition processing time has held relatively steady in the past six months, only oscillating from a low of 13.3 months in July 2014 to a high of 14.7 months in October 2014. The processing times can be accessed by anyone here.
