Can investors from Vietnam participate in the EB-5 visa program?

Can investors from Vietnam participate in the EB-5 visa program? We know that the U.S. does not let Vietnam citizens participate in the green card visa lottery. Has this been extended to other visa categories?

    Absolutely yes, investors from Vietnam can participate in the EB-5 program. The diversity lottery has nothing to do with other visa categories.

    Yes, the EB-5 program is open to Vietnamese nationals. Currency controls are certainly an issue for Vietnamese investors.

    USCIS does not have a restriction on the countries that can apply for the EB-5 program. Nationals from Vietnam can apply for the EB-5. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you.

    Yes, investors from Vietnam may participate. The diversity lottery program is a very specific program designed to encourage people to immigrate to the United States from countries that are traditionally under-represented among immigrant populations in the United States. There are a number of countries that do not participate in the diversity lottery. However, anyone, regardless of nationality or citizenship, may participate in the EB-5 program.

    Citizens of Vietnam are not excluded from applying for an immigrant visa through an investment under the EB-5 preference.

    We have seen no objection to Vietnamese nationals participating in the EB 5 program. The issue arises in the export of capital which is restricted from that country. The lottery is indeed restricted to certain select countries.

    Yes investors from Vietnam are able to participate in the EB5 program. The main problem citizens from this country face is the path of funds. The US immigration laws do not discriminate against any person of any nationality.

    The restrictions on countries in the visa lottery program are separate from other visa categories. There is no restriction on investors from Vietnam. If I can be of further assistance please let me know.

    For Vietnamese, EB-5 is available. EB-5 is very different from visa lottery, which is only available to certain countries which do not have a large immigration population in the US.
