Under existing EB-5 rules, approximately 10,000 visas are allocated to the program each year. If all 10,000 visas are used, each country is capped at a maximum of 7% of the total. As a result, countries with a large number of applicants may see longer wait times to begin their period of conditional permanent residency. Currently, China is the only country affected by retrogression. The USCIS posts quarterly updates on this topic.
