USCIS clarifies extension of EB-5 CPR status with pending Form I-829

  1. Original Date Announced

    May 2, 2018

    USCIS updates its Policy Manual to clarify how the conditional permanent resident (CPR) status of EB-5 immigrant investors is extended if their initial two-year CPR status has expired. The new section of the manual makes clear that EB-5 immigrants can maintain CPR status past the initial two years until their Form I-829 petition to remove the conditions upon their residency is resolved. By filing a Form I-829, EB-5 investors automatically extend their CPR status for one year, and opportunities for additional extensions are available until the Form I-829 is adjudicated. [ID #508]
