If I was born here what can I do here to get a long term tourist visa to India instead of having to buy a new one every year? PIO wouldn’t make sense because...is my origin India if I was US born?

If your parents are from India and can prove their indian citizenship (even if they had it sometime in the past) , you can claim for OCI . This will enable you to travel w/o visas etc.

likehelpful

You can also apply for an OCI if your grand parents were Indian Citizens. If you don’t qualify or don’t want to go with an OCI, they offer a 10 year tourist Visa. This is different than the e-Visa in that I think it requires you to go to a consulate in the US to get the Visa.

This one is for folks on h1b visa. So at time when you have an offer in hand(not accepted the offer yet and h1b transfer process not yet begun) while you are working with your current employer, do you even speak to your employer about your new offer to see if they make a counter offer? Is there a risk involved with this approach assuming your current employer doesn't provide you with a counter offer and they ask you to leave immediately (and your h1b visa hasn't been transferred either)

Getting haunted by the fact I didn’t get promo for 2 years and just got it this year. The peer then is my (thin line) day to day reporting manager who still leans on me. While I respect her position, I’m feeling like I don’t have the independence of “running the show”. The client has been ours for over few years so I can’t even make “relationships” work. No team reports to me directly so feeling like I’m still a SC but with a title. I hate bringing low energy but what can I change about this?
