The “Final Action Date” priority date for Vietnamese EB-5 investors moved forward slightly in the Department of State November 2020 visa bulletin from August 15, 2017 to September 1, 2017.  The priority date indicates that any investors who filed their I-526 Petitions on or before September 1, 2017 now have visas available. If you are such an investor, you should be sure to contact the National Visa Center to begin your visa application process (if you have not already done so because of current Dates for Filing).

The Dates for Filing (Table B) remains current as has been the norm for Vietnam investors who will be classified under “All Chargeability Areas except those listed”.

Moreover, the USCIS has announced that it will allow those applicants who are in the U.S. and eligible to use the Dates for Filing table, which is current, to file adjustment of status applications in the United States. Contact us if you think you may be eligible to do so.

What do the Final Action Date and Dates for Filing Applications mean?  

If you have any questions about the visa bulletin, priority dates, the EB-5 visa or other U.S. visas, contact us at and speak with a U.S. immigration attorney based in Ho Chi Minh City, Manila and Taipei.
