And, continued from the previous post about the Top Five EB-5 Originating Countries, here are the EB-5 visa numbers from FY2001 (188 visas) to FY2012 (7,641 visa). What a difference ten years makes! (Click on the chart to make it bigger.)
The State Dept. numbers refer to people who are overseas and obtain their greencards through consular processing, while the USCIS numbers refer to people who are already in the United States on a non-immigrant visa (such as student visas or work visas) and adjust their status through an I-485 petition.
