因为疫情,今年美国职业移民有望额外获得5万多个绿卡名额


一句话介绍:因为疫情导致美国大使馆停止办公,今年估计会有5万多个家庭移民绿卡名额用不完,这些名额有希望被转给职业移民(EB1/EB2/EB3)

透露这个消息的人,是Charles Oppenheim,他多年来掌管美国移民排期,近日参加一个会议时公开发言说的。

消息在网上也有,有家律师事务所,Wolfsdorf Rosenthal LLP,老板Bernard Wolfsdorf是美国移民律师协会(AILA)前主席。律所网站的消息转载如下。

标题:

Approximately 60,000 Additional Employment Visas Available for Fiscal Year 2021 (Starting October 1, 2020)

全文:

Charles Oppenheim, Chief of the Visa Control and Reporting Division at the U.S. Department of State, when addressing the EB-5 trade association IIUSA on June 15, 2020, estimated that the “FY 2021 Employment limit [could be] at least 200,000 [as opposed to the regular 140,000].”

This is because he “currently expects that there will be a significant amount of unused FY 2020 family numbers …” after the shutdown of consulates due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

While qualifying that things, “could always change between now and September, and impact that estimate,” this is good news for all the employment categories, especially the EB-5 employment category where the unavailability of visas, together with the increase in the maximum investment, has caused a slump in EB-5 filings.

However, the EB-1, 2 and 3 visa categories would benefit most with an estimated 51,480 visas going to these three categories collectively.

Mr. Oppenheim also confirmed that the annual deduction of 700 EB-5 and 300 EB-3 visas as a result of the Chinese Student Protection Act will be completely satisfied in FY2020. Therefore, not only will China receive its full annual quota in FY2021 (starting October 1, 2020), but it will also benefit from this unused family visa spillover.

EB-4 and EB-5 each get 7.1% of the allocation of an additional 4,260 visas, approximately.  EB-1,2 and 3 each get 28.6% of the quota so each category would likely get an additional 17,160 visas, approximately.
