EB-5 visa or EB-3: Which should I choose?

I plan to work and gain experience in the U.S. before I begin my own software company. Should I get an EB-5 or an EB-5 visa first?

I want to work in the USA first and eventually create my own business. I see the EB-3 and the EB-5 visa could be good for me. I plan to work and gain experience before I begin my own software company. There are a lot of job offers for software developers, so I don’t think it will be hard to get the EB-3. Or is it better to choose the EB5 first so I start my own business right away and create the jobs?

EB3 is sponsored by employers. Employees have no control over the process. In case the company terminates the employment for any reason, you will have to start over. EB5 is self-sponsored. It is not going to have conflict with EB3 if you later on are to be sponsored for.
So, I suggest you consider starting with EB5.

It depends on your country of nationality, stability of the entity you would invest in and lots of other factors.

Depends on the country of birth. For non-India and China individuals, the wait time to realize an EB-3 is 2 to 4 years; for India and China born individuals, the wait time to realize an EB-3 visa is 10+ years.
