What are alternate options if my EB-5 application is denied? Right now my husband is an F-1 PhD student in the United States. I plan to apply for an EB-5 visa by myself, while my husband maintains his student status. What if my EB-5 investment fails after the two years, but my husband is on an H1-B visa or a green card holder in the U.S.? Can I apply for an H-4 or follow my husband with his green card?
