At the IIUSA EB-5 forum, Visa Control Office Chief Charles Oppenheim spoke about EB-5 Visa availability and recent trends: Dropping sharply from FY 2017, Chinese visa use has steadied the past two years; India overtook Vietnam as in FY 2019 as the second-highest user, with South Korea making a big push as well; top 10 countries use almost 85% of visas (China uses 45.7%). Potential waits if an I-526 is filed today: India, 6.7 years; Vietnam, 7.1 years; South Korea, 3 years; Brazil, 1.4 years.
