How can I transfer from E2 status to EB-5 with concurrent filing?

Can one move from E2 Status (not E2 visa, rather the E2 from a change of status in country) to EB-5 using the new concurrent filing method?

    Yes, if you file I-526 and I-485 at the same time.

    If you are in the U.S. in valid E-2 status you can concurrently file an I-526/I-485 (AOS). You can do so if you have a pending I-526 petition filed before June 30, 2021 last year or if you are filing an I-526 direct EB-5 petition. Investors must currently wait for Regional Centers to be recertified by USCIS to make a new EB-5 I-526 filing with a Regional Center project after May 14, 2021.

    Yes, provided that you meet all the AOS requirements.
