  • Jan 30 - The EB-5 China Cap And CIR

    Comment: The EB-5 China Cap And CIR
    Last year, China accounted for over 60% of all EB-5 visas worldwide, and was the main reason that the EB-5 10,000 visa cap was reached for the first year ever. The rumor for 2013 is that EB-5 numbers for China will cease to be current in the visa bulletin in Q3 (i.e. April, May, June), thus ensuring that the China percentage of EB-5 usage perhaps drops under 60%. If this indeed turns out to be the case, then China may be on its way down to perhaps 40% of the worldwide EB-5 - still #1, but no longer as dominant as it had once been. The rising countries will very likely be S. Korea and Iran, with the biggest growth coming from countries such as Brazil, Russia, and India.

    To the best of our knowledge, none of the immigration reform proposals currently on the table make any mention of increasing the EB-5 quota, despite massive Congressional past support of the EB-5 program. Perhaps those who advocate for EB-5 matters on the Hill will strive to incorporate EB5-specific language into the various huge immigration bills currently being drafted there.
