With An Expedited Project                       You Get Your Green Card Fast

Tinian Ocean View Resort will run the only ferry between Saipan and Tinian, which will significantly improve the local infrastructure and medical services. Furthermore, it will guarantee the personal safety of islanders and tourists. Due to this benefit, this project meets several requirements for expedited projects, and it has received the necessary USCIS approval for I-526 expedites. This is project is one of the extremely few EB-5 projects to receive such USCIS approval.


Expedited project advantage: Two specially designated immigration officers are fully responsible for processing our investors’ I-526 applications. It means that our immigration attorney has direct communication with USCIS should there be any issues with processing applications for our investors.

Also, it significantly shortens time to receive USCIS approval as follows:

  • Average I-526 processing time for other projects’ investors: 30 months

  • Average I-526 processing time for our investors: 6 months


Success rate as of September 30, 2018:

  • I-526: 93 investors, 22 pending (100% success rate in I-526 approval for all adjudicated I-526 petitions)

  • I-829: 93 pending (we expect 100% success rate for our I-829, but USCIS has not processed any of the petitions as of September 30, 2018)

*This timeline is for general informational purposes only. The actual time require to complete the EB-5 process will vary based on the investment selected, each individual’s case and other factors. Current, there is a EB-5 Visa availability backlog for mainland Chinese and Vietnam applicants, it may be several years between USCIS’ approval of I-526 petition and the time an EB-5 visa is available. This may require the lengthening of the duration of an applicable EB-5 investment, which could delay the investor’s possible (not guaranteed) return of investment proceeds.
