Free EB-5 Project Evaluation Can a foreign national pursue the EB-5 Program and register for the Diversity Visa Lottery at the same time?

Yes, a person can pursue both immigration avenues at the same time; however, once an EB-5 investment is made, it may or may not be retreivable depending on the specific details of the project’s offering documents. The EB-5 Program has a high rate of success, while the chances of gaining a Green Card through the DV Lottery are slim—but there is no harm in pursuing both, and doing so only increases the likelihood of gaining permanent resident status.
