With the green card line being close to infinite, what do you think will happen to the new PPMDs? Is it possible for a PPMD to get EB1? What about directors and VPs at large companies?

No one in leadership I know is on an H1B. Was wondering if you’ll know people who are or if someone has been able to successfully upgrade to EB1 after a promotion to a leadership position

Assuming you will EB1C which is only applicable if you are an overseas manager for atleast a year. AFAIK you can't upgrade to EB1 if you are in the US. The bigger question : is it even possible to become a partner/principal on an H1B? Because technically you become part owner of the company and are are no longer an employee, which would be a violation of H1 status. I ll be glad if someone could explain these technicalities

You can be a partner in private consulting firms like us.

That is my question as well- can someone take a role which has profit sharing like partner in consulting or director and above in some companies if they don’t have a GC? With the current situation this will be a reality for many Indians.

Wait sorry. At that level, isn’t it an easy decision to just buy a GC at a million ?

You can’t buy a GC. You have to invest in a business that is going to create jobs for something like 10 American workers. Sure that’s an option but
1. Would you even be able to get to a profit sharing position without a GC
2. Isn’t it complicated to do a job and run a business. $1m is still a lot even at that level. You’d want it to be not a total loss- that would require time.

That’s not true. They run machinery and it has lot of potential breakdown issue

EB1A is very much possible for partner
THe EB5 line is crazy backlogged as well
Most importantly these firms MBB B4 etc not partnerships the way the law firm is they are private companies and partners are issued equity which does not violate any H1 laws

Forget EB1 unless you go back - stay in India for at least 1 year - come back - apply EB1 then. It will be still a long journey after that as well.

Your best bet is eb1a or eb5 or lifelong extensions. Also you can be a partner in H1B I thought. Someone mentioned that on the forum last year. Not sure. Double check that info.

What would you recommend doing?
Keeping it to myself?
