What’s so special about October 1? I think we just need to apply and they will turn it around as quickly as possible. Probably not by the first, especially there is quite a few people outside that the US that can’t enter in any case.

Read the answers below.

Expect everything to be atleast 60 days delayed.

It doesn't have to be by October 1st. In 2017, I got picked in the lottery right around May but I had rfes and the process went on back and forth. I got my approval on December 4th.

That makes sense. It's going to be challenging for those who're waiting for approval and don't have a status or it expires prior to approval.

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!

One of the recruiters from EY mentioned that they don’t start GC process unless I have 2 years left on H1B expiry. I have currently 4 more years left (1+3). Should I consider going to EY or stay in PwC? Open for thoughts to tackle this. TIA!PwC EY
