A Olusanjo OmoniyiImmigration Attorney
Generally, unless you have a non-immigrant visa you can fall back on, you have to leave the US and wait for the EB-1 immigrant visa. You cannot stay on the EB-5 immigrant visa while waiting for the EB-1. Advisably, the EB-1 which you seem to prefer is fraught with the danger of either being rejected or may even take longer to process. Prior to making a final decision consult an attorney to understand your options.
