When EB-5 Is not Option - Consider New Reciprocal Non Immigration Visa (NIV) Laws Now Available to Chinese Nationals

The Department of State announced in 2014 that China had reached its numerical limit for the very first time. Despite the new fiscal year starting shortly thereafter (October 1, 2014), it is clear that new alternatives for U.S. business travel needs must be explored .

While an EB-5 visa confers immediate Conditional Permanent Status in the United States, Starting November 12, 2014 Non-immigrant visas (NIVs) have become more "permanent" in nature. The United States and the People's Republic of China will reciprocally increase the validity of short-term business visas and allow multiple-entry visas. Other NIV categories which also benefit from this new law include: F visas (student visas), M visas (students), J visas (exchange students).

Approved multiple entry visas for B-1/B-2 (business and tourist), along with their dependents would be valid for ten years. F, M & J visas will be valid for up to five years.

You may contact our office to set up an appointment to meet with our experienced and personable immigration attorneys. We have different offices locations based in the Washington D.C. area (DC, MD &VA), and in other states which are available at

All of our attorneys are members of the American Immigration Lawyers' Association ("AILA").
