CHALLENGES WITH THE EB-5 PROGRAM
Hoang says the two biggest challenges with the EB-5 program are the processing time and choosing quality investment projects , which is why she works with a few companies she can trust .
“ With 800,000 applications it can take five to seven years to be processed . Now the goal ( of USCIS ) is to shorten the time to six months . If there are no more backlogs , then there will be more visas available .”
Now that the EB-5 program is opened again , Hoang says she can increase the number of her clients from 40 to 50 per year to upwards of 200 . This expansion includes opening offices in cities outside Ho Chi Minh City .
“ We believe this year we will be one of the most active agencies in Vietnam ,” she says . “ We ’ re going to be the top three in the market and will bring more services and target more people . We are really confident and really happy to bring good quality projects to our clients .”

Even with admission delays and other issues , Hoang says the EB-5 program is a way to change people ’ s lives .
“ I still believe EB-5 is a great program for our clients , allowing for rich people and successful people to earn a better quality of life . We are really happy EB-5 is back this year so we can continue being successful and bring services and solutions for our clients .”
