We have just submitted our EB-5 DS-260 to NVC for document qualification. Simultaneously, the F-1 student visa of my son is set to expire in June 2023. Can I proceed with submitting an F-1 student application, specifically the DS-160? This would mean that there will be two visa applications under his name. Is this advisable? If not, what is the alternative?
As long as you are upfront about it, should be fine - indicate he will be returning for immigrant visa interview.
Yes - you can pursue both processes at the same time. You have to confirm on your son''s application that he is the dependent beneficiary of an I-526 petition and has filed Form DS-260. However, you should also note that his present intent is to return to study/work in the U.S. pursuant to his F-1 visa status and once he is eligible for his immigrant visa, he will depart the U.S. in accordance with F-1 visa guidelines to pursue his immigrant visa process at the U.S. consulate abroad.
