Yep went to India for stamping in the first week of April. Came back in third week. No issues whatsoever. I wasn't even asked any questions at POE. Immigration + baggage claim took 10 mins tops. No kidding.

Hello there! Presently on EB2 and of Indian nationality with Priority date in Aug 2016. Since I am a people manager and we have an office in Toronto, we were looking into getting a PR in Canada and having me work there for a year before coming back to the US on a L1A visa. Thus shortening my GC wait time. However with the recent EB3 retrogression, they are looking into possibly downgrading me to EB3 instead. Which route (L1A or EB3) would be quicker and dependable? How to convince them? Thanks!
