How might an EB-5 investor apply for a B-1/B-2 Visa with a pending I-526 Petition?

B-1/B-2 visitor visas carry nonimmigrant intent, and so for an EB-5 investor with a pending I-526 Petition, it may be difficult to obtain a B Visa. That said, an EB-5 investor is allowed to apply for a B-1/B-2 Visa but will likely have to demonstrate sufficient need for the visa and should also be prepared to provide evidence of his/her intent to return home upon the visa’s expiration. The investor should also truthfully disclose the pending I-526 Petition.
