Recent job postings indicate that USCIS Immigrant Investor Program Office (IPO) is expanding its workforce, notes EB-5 processing expert Suzanne Lazicki. Posts for adjudicator positions suggest a commitment to improving processing efficiency. Lazicki also surmises from certain postings that USCIS aims to improve regional center compliance, records management, and inquiries. Numbers from October 2022 indicate USCIS has 40 staff members working on I-526/I-526E petitions and 35 working on I-829 petitions.
