How can I change information on my DS-260 form for my EB-5 visa?

I have made a mistake on my DS-260 form about my employment history. I already signed the form and scheduled an appointment. Should I correct it before the EB-5 visa interview? If yes, who should I contact regarding the changes?

    Your attorney of record should be able to contact NVC to re-open DS-260 online to make correction. Alternatively, bring information to your immigrant visa interview and explain a typographic error.

    Unfortunately, a change is not possible. Just bring the correct information to the interview and advise the officer.

    At this point, you cannot change the information you already submitted in the DS-260. That said, this should not be a problem at all. At the consular interview, please bring that up immediately to the attention of the officer assigned to your case. They will make a note of the correct employment history. It should have no negative effect on the processing of your adjustment of status whatsoever.

    Often you can correct issues in the interview, but it may cause delays in processing. However, I would want to know the nature of the mistake before determining if cancelling the interview or withdrawing the DS-260 is necessary. Having an attorney work on your case can help avoid these issues.

    At this point, I will wait and make the necessary changes at the time of interview.

    Depending upon whether it is material or not, you can certainly correct it at your interview.

    You have to request permission to reopen and change after submission. The other way is to correct it, take the new version to the interview and ask the officer to accept the new version.
