Topic: On April 13, 2015, at IIUSA’s EB-5 Advocacy Conference in Washington D.C., the U.S. Department of State reported that the EB-5 visa category will retrogress for Chinese applicants beginning May 1, 2015. A cutoff date of May 1, 2013 has been imposed, which
means that as of May 1, 2015 only investors who filed their I-526 before May 1, 2013 can move
forward to the next step (immigrant visa via the National Visa Center and U.S. consulates
abroad, or adjustment of status in the U.S.).
The onset of retrogression and procedural changes to the issuance of visas will have widespread implications for investors, investment entities and for the USCIS policies that govern how the EB-5 Program functions.
Join our expert panel on April 30th for a webinar to explore what the EB-5 visa retrogression means for your clients and your business.
