How can I renew my F-1 visa after applying for EB-5?
I am currently a F-1 student and will graduate on February 1, 2015. I have applied for OPT, which is still pending and my F-1 visa is expired. I plan to go to my home country for the holiday and then come back to the United States to start my OPT (I have a job offer). I am also applying for EB-5 and just submitted the I-526 last week. Will my I-526 application already be in the system? Is it possible to renew my F-1 visa after I applied for EB-5? Can I leave and renew in my home country and then re-enter the United States?
