Just lost my 2nd H1b lottery. Have 1 year left on visa and 1 lottery left. Do any firms out there sponsor for Greencard before you have an H1b? Assuming it’d be very hard for me to get someone to sponsor me for H1b with only one year OPT left given the lottery, but maybe GC would be possible since it’s higher likelihood of approval?

I’ve seen it happen in small companies, never in large consulting firms

Startups will as long as you are ROW. But with current processing times it’s gonna be near impossible to get the paperwork done in a year. You need to have the I-485 filed within the 60 day grace period, and even then you’ll have a gap in employment

We do, as do most tech companies

Really?? Are you sure?? BCG absolutely does not sponsor green card to someone in F1 that doesn’t get h1b. They send you abroad for one year and bring you back on L1

Amazon and Google are two companies that do. My friends joined there in their first year of OPT and they filed for GC immediately irrespective of H1B status, non backlogged country ofcourse.

I don't think you can apply for a GC on an F1 visa since its a visa with no immigration intent.
