What is visa retrogression?

Retrogression (or visa backlog) occurs when the annual country visa quota is exhausted and where the total visa demand exceeds the annual visa limit.


This creates a visa backlog. Families from retrogressed countries must wait longer to receive the EB-5 visa.


EB-5 investors whose spouse is not born in a retrogressed country can avoid visa backlog.


Behring’s Legacy Fund is an ideal EB-5 investment strategy for investors facing visa backlogs because they can generate wealth over time and potentially withdrawal earnings while maintaining EB-5 compliance.
