On April 12, the Department of State-Bureau of Consular Affairs released its Visa Bulletin for the month of May. All EB-5 Regional Center categories have gone to “U” meaning unauthorized.
Authorization for the EB-5 Regional Center Program is scheduled to expire on April 28th, 2017, meaning that visa numbers are not currently authorized for issuance after that date. If there is legislative action reauthorizing the EB-5 Regional Center Program then the final action dates would immediately become “Current” for May for all countries except Mainland-China born applicants who would be subject to a June 1, 2014 final action date.
EB-5 Visas may be issued until close of business on April 28, 2017, and may be issued for the full validity period. No visas may be issued overseas, or final action taken on adjustment of status cases, after April 28, 2017.
