Investment related: I am planning to buy a house in the US in an Year, however, I was also thinking to use the same funds to invest in India. I don’t have firm plans to move to India yet. Currently I am staying in an apartment. No debts and outstanding loans. Single male, 33.

Whats the question?

😊 where should I invest?

Oh. It’ll be much easier for you to manage your property in the US since you’ll be on the ground so I would invest here if I were you

And also if you leave, you can always put it on rent and get a steady rent in $ amounts after you move to India.


Are you treating real estate as an investment? Hope you have maxed out all other means like retirement accounts, individual brokerage account, a bit of crypto , etc before treating a house like an investment. Buy property in the US with the mindset to live in it and if possible rent a portion of it. But don’t look at it purely as an investment. Look at the stock market for investment

That’s good. Yes buy a property to live in - in US. Don’t invest in RE in India.

You may encounter visa issues and in that case managing a property in USA is a big pain. On top of it , unlike India you cannot resell your property so easily is USA and on top of it you have to pay taxes . So first decide on this and if you are willing to take risk then move forward . Plots in metros like Bangalore will have a better ROI and you are covered in terms of immigration head

Buying in a gated community is a safe bet and so is the management of the property .

Hi Everyone, need some initial help (and can consult a lawyer after for more information). I am seeing many people switch jobs to Tech despite being in the green card queue. I believe it’s sometimes possible to retain the original priority date despite changing jobs. Barring regulation change, I also have a never ending wait for my priority date to become current. Can you help me understand the factors I should consider before deciding to change jobs from Consulting to Tech? What are the risks?


Given the stress of an H1B visa and the general lack of optionality for Indian immigrants given long GC wait….

Would you do it differently if given a choice to move back in time and change things?

Time to call Congress and Senate to support HR392. Removal of country cap. Educate yourself, your friends and colleagues. Last chance for Indians stuck in backlog. Or wait for 150 yrs

Fellow Desi Fish,

SO filling out passport renewal form. Finished CKGS, however in the form at the Indian Passport site - instead of leaving "PREVIOUS/CURRENT DIPLOMATIC/OFFICIAL PASSPORT" SO filled in a previous regular passport info. (To SO's credit, the phrasing was odd to ask for a previous passport)

SO unable to log back into the Indian Gov Passport site. Is this a deal breaker or would they give this mistype a pass?


Just to confirm: what all documents my parents need to carry while visiting US on visiting visa. Thanks in Advance .

Can anyone suggest a good software for preparing taxes for 1040-NR? Currently on F1 visa; can't use TurboTax since they don't do 1040 NR.

Anyone use fee waiver form for extending parents visiting visa due to COVID-19? Would using this hurt my chances of Green card in the future if this is considered a public charge?
