Scheduled Expiration of EB-4 SR and EB-5 (I5 and R5)

Reauthorization of the EB-4 Religious Workers (SR) and EB-5 (I5 and R5) categories are currently impacted by the partial government shutdown. Until these categories are reauthorized by Congress, they remain unavailable. Should these categories be reauthorized, EB-4 SR would immediately become “current” for all countries except EB-4 SR El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, which would have a Final Action Date of March 1, 2016, and EB-4 SR Mexico, which would have a Final Action Date of September 1, 2017. Similarly, EB-5 (I5 and R5) Worldwide would become “current,” with EB-5 (I5 and R5) China having a Final Action Date of September 1, 2014, and EB-5 (I5 and R5) Vietnam having a Final Action Date of June 15, 2016.
