Why stay in a country that doesn't want you? Unless you're escaping from war/extreme poverty you have a good education and skills to make it anywhere. I plan to leave when it no longer makes sense to stay here.


Is 60k base standard? That sounds like a ton in India.


Contemplating a move to Canada, Australia, Singapore or Dubai. 8-12 years is far too long of a runway to keep waiting


Who could blame you?

@k1 - Totally agree. I will stick around till it gets a bit more frustrating, never got a property in the US for the same reason. I know someone who went to a big 4 in Mumbai as a manager and gets paid around $60K base. Which does not sound much but if you think about not having to pay rent /crazy mortgages/ insurances and crazy tax it actually works out well. I will stay in a position where I can cash out in no time. Btw, I was reading an article (Bloomberg I guess) where expats in India make the most around the world which means if we get that blue passport and decide to move back we get the best of both worlds ;)

Agreed K1 and D1. What stage of the gc process are you in? I know relocating is easier said than done. What I'm scared of is moving and then regretting my choice and not being able to return. MyPD is in 2014.

Not to forget another 5-6 years to seal the deal.

@AC1 as a first year manager

Pwc1, it is not 8-12 years. It's several decades.

And 60k base in India is very doable.

How is the U.K. As an option? I know it takes 5 years if you are tier 2. But is it hard to get tier 2? What's the rule here?

I want to move to Canada as well! My green card process is not even started and I'm already tired lol

@D2 political turmoil, only one major city crazy expensive. I don't think they get paid as much as you'd in New York so that makes things even worst

@TC1 haha! Welcome to the American life!

Plus medical expenses, education expenses are much lower. $60k is a good amount in india

Yeah personally, if I move I will go back to India. Middle East and Asia pacific clients, family, friends, food and tbh I don't see much of lifestyle difference if you end up getting a decent paying job

Agreed OP
