Investors in the application of I-526 and EB-5 are concerned that the changes affect visa applications. They wonder if it is possible to obtain reservations for visas. They ask how applicants are chosen to benefit from other issues related to the future of visa reservations. Under the current legislation, the priority reserve date for EB-5 visas is not yet feasible, it is not clear if this will change. The Grassley / Leahy project did not make changes in this regard, therefore they do not know if it is necessary to resubmit the application.
In general, negotiations in the Senate have given hope to hundreds of investors from mainland China who were waiting for the opportunity to submit applications for EB-5 visas not subject to the 7/10 year wait. Even if the proposal is approved, more travel will be needed. All these aspects may remain unclear until immigration from the United States is involved. Particularly for investors from mainland China who are trying to predict future regulations. Investors should consult well qualified immigration legal advisors before continuing with their processes.
