EB5 Investment Based Green Card

How long does it take to get a green card through the EB5 program? As long as I make the required investment, the visa is guaranteed, right? I also read that the EB5 program will end soon, is that true?

Current processing times are about 4-6 months for both Form I-526 and Form I-829. According to USCIS figures, there were 692 EB5 cases filed from October 2008 through May 2009 and 608 were approved so your chances are good but not guaranteed. There are many factors which can lead to a denial so you must be sure to prepare your application very thoroughly. The EB5 program is scheduled to sunset in September but it is widely expected that the program will be extended but because applications are taking 4-6 months to get approved.
