Latest Chinese EB-5 Visa Availability Projection: Bernard P. Wolfsdorf

"Bernard Wolfsdorf has engaged in a discussion with the State Department clarifying the State Department’s recent visa availability projections in Item E of the March 2014 Visa Bulletin. The State Department has indicated that the EB-5 category will be “Current” for the foreseeable future, and there is no mention of “retrogression.”

Charlie W. Oppenheim, Chief of Immigrant Control & Reporting of the State Department, has advised that EB-5 demand was “manageable,” which means that visa availability will stay “Current” for the foreseeable future. Mr. Oppenheim stated he will most likely provide the next “availability” update in the June or July 2014 bulletin, and that he will try to provide notice about the potential for retrogression/unavailability one to two months in advance." - Bernard P. Wolfsdorf, Mar. 6, 2014.
