What should an EB-5 investor do if his passport expires before a DS-260 application is submitted?

I recently renewed my passport. My I-526 application had the information from my old passport on it. I am about to file a DS-260 and schedule a consular appointment. What should I do about the inconsistency of passport information on the I-526 and the DS-260?

To make sure all the information is correct and consistent, include in the DS-260 application all information in the expired passport. A copy of the expired may be made and submitted as part of the DS-260 as well.

You will be fine. Remember to include the new passport information.

Wait for the new passport before filing the DS-260. Submit copies of both with the supporting documents and have both with you at the interview. It is common for new passports to be obtained throughout the process.

Use the current passport on DS-260. Bring a copy of old passport to the interview.

Just give new passport date on the DS-160.

Just make sure you have the new passport for the interview. NVC may request this as well before even scheduling you for the interview.

This is not a problem. Simply update it.

That is not an issue. It is considered an updated information (not inconsistency). You can address that if questioned at the interview.

Take the old passport with the new passport with you. If that is not possible, take a photo of the old passport with you.
