China’s EB-5 final action date progresses in May visa bulletin Staff

The May 2023 visa bulletin has been released, detailing the final action date for EB-5 investors from different countries.

For most countries, the final action date, which is the date at which EB-5 investors are eligible to apply for green cards, is current, which indicates no backlogs and means EB-5 investors on a current final action date can go ahead and apply for a green card.

For mainland China investors, the biggest nationality of EB-5 investors in 2022, the final action date is now set at September 8, 2015, which is a two-month progression from the April final action date which fell on July 8, 2015.

The final action date for Indian EB-5 investors remains unchanged from April, at June 1, 2018.

The final action date, however, may not be that final. EB-5 investors from both countries could still manage to apply for a green card. “When USCIS determines that there are more immigrant visas available for the fiscal year than there are known applicants for such visas, USCIS will state on its website that applicants may instead use the “Dates for Filing Visa Applications” charts in this Bulletin,” reads the May 2023 visa bulletin.

As for set-aside categories, the final action dates for all countries, including China and India, is current – see chart above.
