JANUARY 2019 VISA BULLETIN
U.S. Department of State – Bureau of Consular Affairs has published the January 2019 Visa Bulletin. It is noted that the EB-5 Regional Center category has been listed as “U” meaning unauthorized for issuance.
House Appropriations Committee Chairman Rodney Frelinghuysen introduced H.J. Res 143 – FY 2019 making further continuing appropriations to extend the EB-5 Regional Center program until Dec. 21th 2018. As such, the EB-5 visa category is currently listed as “Unavailable” for January. In case there is legislative action extending the Program into 2019, the final action dates would immediately become “Current” for all countries except China-mainland born which would be subject to a September 1, 2014 final action date and Vietnam which would be subject to a June 1, 2016 final action date.
IIUSA staff is working hard on Capitol Hill to ensure that the EB-5 Regional Center Program receives an extension prior to the December 21, 2018 deadline.
