What happens if my priority date becomes current but my I-526 is still pending?

I applied for the EB-5 program. What will happen if my priority date matches the current Final Action date in the Visa Bulletin but the I-526 application is still pending?

The processing of the I-526 governs regardless of the date in the visa bulletin you are looking at because, unless the I-526 is approved, you cannot proceed to the I-485 stage.

Nothing can happen until the I-526 is approved.

Nothing happens. You have to wait for the I526 approval before the visa bulletin priority dates become relevant to you.

Nothing happens. You still cannot file the second stage until the first stage is approved.

You will need an approved I-526 in order to move to the next step.

Then you hope for an I-526 approval this month so you can apply for that green card.

Nothing will happen. You have to wait for the I-526 approval to file for adjustment of status or proceed with immigrant visa processing.

Have your lawyer do a formal inquiry. If you dont have a lawyer, then you will have to contact USCIS yourself.
