Can someone pursue EB-5 and another visa category?

Yes, foreign national investors have the flexibility to pursue a green card through the EB-5 program while simultaneously exploring other employment-based pathways like EB-2 or EB-3. This can be particularly advantageous for applicants facing extended processing times in categories like EB-3, where wait periods can exceed ten years for certain nationalities.

There are no legal restrictions against applying for green cards in multiple categories. You can initiate the EB-2 or EB-3 process, potentially lasting several years, while concurrently pursuing an EB-5 visa.
