L1A. A 2016 priority date will become current by around 2035-40 assuming no immigration reform.

Thank you!

L1A would still be quicker. I already hear that EB3 is back to its old slowness....

Thank you!

What are your thoughts on this diversity visa debate? I always thought it to be an unfair program, strongly anchored on the lottery of birth. Selfishly, I hope it ends and instead the visa numbers are used for retrogressed countries stuck in the EB saga. At least the employment based route is a hard won merit based path.
