EB-5 Visa Stats as of 03/2012

The State Department Visa Office has still not released its report for 2011 (and about time, too, since its FY2011 ended last September), but IIUSA has obtained a report on EB-5 visa usage up to 03/2012. IIUSA thoughtfully provides charts that illustrate the increase in visa usage by year and track trends by country. I’m interested to note that Iran and Venezuela have moved into the top five countries by visa usage, and that Chinese nationals continue to dominate the list (accounting for nearly 70% of EB-5 visas issued in 2011 and 2012 to date).

  2. Hi Suzanne, the government fiscal year commences on October 1, correct? Is the 2,405 figure for the fiscal year, through 3/31/12, or for the first three months of the calendar year 2012? Apples/oranges? Thanks – Michael

  3. Yes, you are correct. I’ll modify that point.
