M1 - thanks for the not so helpful response. I wanted to check what experiences (documents requests included) other folks had recently given the current climate. Online forums can be pretty generic, which is why I asked here so I could get consulting specific visa related experiences

... Also, which documents to bring along? DS-160 confirmation, fee receipt, I-797s, I-129, employment verification letter, recent paystubs, US tax returns? Anything else? Any guidance is greatly appreciated 🐟 fam!

It’s your second time you should know what documents needed, there are 100s of fotums online that can tell you the docs

Aadhar card, PAN card, wedding pics, birth certificate, previous degree and mark sheets , medical records (indicating TB results), bank statements for past one year, client letters and/or SOW, cash for cab back home and snack/drink

I get the anxiety, @op. I don’t have a recent interview experience but I would recommend talk to your attorneys and if you gave a problem you face it can’t do much. The more stories you listen to more stress you take. Good luck !

Hello there! Presently on EB2 and of Indian nationality with Priority date in Aug 2016. Since I am a people manager and we have an office in Toronto, we were looking into getting a PR in Canada and having me work there for a year before coming back to the US on a L1A visa. Thus shortening my GC wait time. However with the recent EB3 retrogression, they are looking into possibly downgrading me to EB3 instead. Which route (L1A or EB3) would be quicker and dependable? How to convince them? Thanks!

Currently I’m on H1B and a SA1b at PwC, EY is offering me SA3. At present, PwC just started my GC process and it’s been only 4-5 months in the initial Perm application. I’m not sure whether EY would start my GC process from Day1 if I join their organization. One of the recruiters from EY mentioned that they don’t start GC process unless I have 2 years left on H1B expiry. I have currently 4 more years left (1+3). Should I consider going to EY or stay in PwC? Open for thoughts to tackle this. TIA!PwC EY
