Vietnam eb-5 Final action date

The May 2018 US Dept. of State Travel Bulletin has published that Vietnam now has a Final Action Date of July 22 2014, same as China.This means, Approved I-526 Vietnamese petitioners will have to wait to be current again before they can be eligible for the green card. As of now, an approved I-526 petitioner from countries other than China & Vietnam can immediately apply for the green card interview.

India will have retrogression by June 2019

Charlie Oppenheim, Chief of the Visa Controls Office at the US Department of State has predicted on April 23 2018 at the IIUSA Conference in Washington, D.C that due to the big increase of I-526 petitions from Indian born petitioners,  Indian petitioners will also be subject to a Final Action Date by June 2019.

Further delays for China

All these Final action dates will only result in Chinese green card applications pending further down the years. Already Chinese citizens have to wait close to 4-5 years (Current Chinese Priority date is 2014).
