Indian 🐠ies- Anyone have luck upgrading from an Eb2 to Eb1 in your green card process? If possible, how?

The whole system is mess, someone with same qualification, less experience gets fast because he gets into EB1 route. Also people from certain countries struggle for decades . It's better to be illegal than with EB3/EB2 status India

Only way is to go work down under or in canada and come back in a year but hey youre an associate long way to make manager

If you go away and come back on a l1, you qualify for EB1. Not sure if that applies to upgrading from EB2, since if you have an application on process you likely cannot just leave. I would be happy to hear other wise though.

^i get what you're saying but breaking the law is not better than having a legal if arduous process to go through. That's an exceedingly dumb statement to make.

If I'm not wrong, to be eligible for EB1 category, the candidate must be a US Manager overseeing teams both in US and an offshore country.

It's an multinational manager, so if you made manager here and went abroad and came back, then it works. It's the easiest loophole, but a new L1 is needed. Most firms will not apply concurrent applications but yours might be an exception. You would have to talk to a lawyer from your immigration department.

EYite - illegal immigrants get the "security" of being thrown in jail and deported at any minute, all for the benefit of being able to work below minimum wage jobs. If you think that's worth more than working at a Big 4 just because you have to wait a while, I suggest you rethink your victim syndrome.

Hey idiot. You realize that in also Indian, also on a H1-B and also in the green card process? Which is why I was replying to this post? I do know how big of a problem it is but it's people like you who conflate illegal and legal immigration that ruin the case for the rest of us. Educate yourself, don't make a mockery of yourself or your lacking intellect.

You are worried about my language, you should learn the one you are attempting to speak in first. English no longer a requirement to work at EY is it? Your comprehension is lackluster at best and you think picking oranges is better than working at a good job. If you're so thirsty to stay in the US, overstay your visa and go pick oranges or flip a burger. I've had enough of your BS, I'm sure your firm will wise up and have enough of you soon too. Ta, asshole!

Our levels dont work like the big 4. I'll be up for Manager the next cycle

Good points M1. I have heard that you can have concurrent applications of Eb1 and Eb2 through the method you mention. What I wasn't sure was if that just happens through maintaining an H1 or actually applying for a new L1 as you mention

I just said because illegal immigrants get better security, if you are in line after 15 years of paying taxes, social security, Medicare etc. it's very frustrating

@M1- That makes sense. @EYite- You are right. But we know that changing the system will need a bipartisan agreement which is not going to happen. So as smart people, it is up to us to figure out the best method possible within the system. We cant let frustration get the better of us

Please Mind your language , I am letting the challenges of the system. Does not mean I am supporting any illegal immigration, I am taking an analogy. Further people on visa today gets thrown out legally next day. I don't think you know how big of a pain it is

M1, can you elaborate on "went abroad and came back" part? 1. Is there a minimum time period where you have to be abroad? 2. Is there a specific list of countries where you have to be?

1. One year at the least, you'd have to work it out with your firm. They have to sign a repatriation agreement. 2. No, it can be Canada.

Your language proves your upbringing . Who is ruining your case, nobody is making mockery of you. I think you should learn basic professional skills

Well you proved with your language the kind of your upbringing and I am worried 😩 about your kids if you have any

Stay classy, fellas.
