This month, Charlie Oppenheim from the Department of State indicated that in April 2018, there will likely be a cut-off date in the EB-5 visa category for Vietnamese nationals. The cut-off date will match the cut-off date for China which is currently at July 22, 2014.
On October 1, 2018, at the beginning of the new fiscal year, a new set of visas will be allocated to the EB-5 program. At that time, we expect the cut-off date for Vietnamese nationals to move forward.
Due to the recent popularity of EB-5 visas, if you and your family are interested in applying for the EB-5 visa, we would recommend that you speak with an SKT attorney soon. SKT will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates.Read More
