With USCIS tightened adjudications policy on Vietnam EB-5 cases, AVS continues to see a 100% approval record for Vietnam investors both with and without RFEs.
I know it is Monday, I know I have already written a bunch of updates, and I know you are probably already tired of hearing me babble on and on…but I have one last thing I want to tell our Vietnam friends today: the “alternate” E-2 route.
