[HOT] Immigrant Visa/Class Admission Classification Symbols for EB-5


Immigration Visa classification symbols stated on the NVC documents and printed on the Immigrant Visas must be checked for accuracy, because that is the IV classification which will be accorded to you and your family members when entering the U.S. first time as initial immigrants to acquire CPR status. Note most Regional Center cases fall under I51, I52 and I53 symbols because almost all RC cases combine both RC and TEA features. The below is a table containing all twelve (12) EB-5 IV classification symbols.

C51 Non-TEA & Non-RC (regular $1 MM case) 203(b)(5)(A)
