Anyone stuck in PA because of visa situation?

Wait depends on which country you are from. India is backlogged for ever. My green card was applied in 2010 and I am still waiting 😄


Not me, but that is the worst :(

H-1B I'm assuming. Do they sponsor a green card?

I'm ...most companies are saying no to sponsoring

They do sponsor green card but it takes close to 10 years to get that and most companies outside are not sponsoring anymore

Me :(

how can u work for 10 years with an h1b? I think you can only work for up to 6 years with that visa

EY2 once they apply for your green card your h1b will be extended that is on top of 6 years

In the same shoes. If it were not the h1b issue, I would have quit already.

Wait...10 years? How so? Mine didn't take that long. Unless the company has requirements regarding how long you should've been an employee etc. before they'd sponsor you.

Yikes! Hang in there. Any EY requirements after you get it?

Not sure, haven't thought that far

Ha. Visa situation accounts for like 80% of seniors in some of the larger offices, it's almost like foreigner abuse if you ask me. Disgusting really.

If you don't already know ref. a commitment then there isn't one...I'd imagine it would be discussed prior to them filing as you'd have to consent to the terms.

My firm initiated my gc after 4-5 yrs.. 10 years seem awfully long

KPMG1 my firm started green card within 3 years. 10 years is how long is going to take for me to get it after they file. For Indians under EB2 category they are currently processing green cards with priority date in 2008 and it's been the same for a year now
