March 2021 Visa Bulletin: 3-Week Advancement for Vietnam EB-5 Dates; No Movement for China Dates

The U.S. Department of State has published the monthly Visa Bulletin for March 2021, unveiling the new EB-5 cut-off dates for visa applicants from backlogged countries.

EB-5 FINAL ACTION DATES (CHART A)

The March Visa Bulletin revealed the following final action dates for EB-5 visa applicants:

  • Mainland China: August 15, 2015
  • Vietnam: October 22, 2017
  • All Other Countries: Current
    • EB-5 visa applicants not from China or Vietnam continue to be able to receive their EB-5 visa number in March 2021 and can file an immigration visa application or adjustment of status application immediately after the approval of their I-526 petition without any delay.

USCIS announced on its website that, in March 2021, the agency will still not accept dates for filing for adjustment of status applications of the employment-based categories. That means, qualified EB-5 applicants must continue to “use the Final Action Dates chart (Chart A) in the Department of State Visa Bulletin for March 2021” to file their adjustment of status application.
