I am an SC on L1 B individual visa (valid until 2021 without any extension). Up for manager this year, will know in 2 weeks. Transferring to USA firm this year. What is the process, timeline for GC?

Depends which country you were born in. There is a whole bunch of shit that needs to take place. But basically your L1B needs to have its run for 2/3 years before they even start the GC process. The fastest could be within 3 years of starting the process provided you make Manager and they give you a salary that meets the PWD

Looking for advice/validation. Currently have about 10 credit cards (yes really!) About half are airline cards that I signed up for for the miles, quicker boarding, and free bags- but they carry a $100 annual fee. Other half are random no-fee cards (BoA, Amazon chase, capital one venture, west elm). My thought is to cancel the ones w an annual fee (just bought a house so no immediate need for higher credit limit). Does this make sense?
