When will the U.S. open their consulates in China again for EB-5 processing?

When is your best guess for when the US Consulate will open in Beijing? Is there any other way to get an EB-5 application processed?

    The Beijing does not do EB-5 interviews, they are all done in Guangzhou. We received numerous appointments for EB-5 in August, but unfortunately, with the temporary lapse of the program, we have to wait for reauthorization - which I expect we will hear about in the next 1-2 months.

    I have no idea. Best is to monitor the U.S. consulate''s website there.

    No one really knows. Consular processing has been nightmarish. We are all doing our best to get applicants prepared.

    A residence application can be processed in the US by filing of the adjustment of status application.

    Immigrant visas in China are only processed in Guangzhou consulate. If your project is a regional center project, you will have to wait until the program is re-authorized. If your project is a direct project, it is still being processed.
