I have not done myself but have seen people doing it, after gaining the international experience.


Not sure what tips you are looking for. It’s straightforward. If you are eligible per USCIS guidelines and your employer policies, your immigration team will process it and you will help them with documents. Rest will be taken care of (by the GOD 😂). No?

I didn’t know that you can port your EB2 to EB2. Does your priority date change in this case?

you can port eb2 to eb2 since they are the same..

Since having hit 30, last July, I want to not just have a well-paying job but want to make sure I am having some real impact in the world. I understand that this is a privileged concept but I don’t want to hit 60 and feel this way because I feel like if I continue on the path I am on, my only impact will be helping rich people get richer. Is there a way to treat this as an experimental
