😢😢😢

Start to finish 1.5years. From a country that’s ROW so no wait time.

Which category did you apply and when did you start process D1? I’m ROW too, so would be helpful to benchmark.

Might be a silly question, but what does countries that are ROW means?

I believe I will be able to dedicate about 10-15 hours a week for the 1-1.5 months I’ll be working with them. The company is based in India but they have previously worked with US-based design agencies. I have 5 years of UIUX design experience and am currently freelancing with 2 other companies in the US @
