The infinite road to Green card!


Spread the love

I would like to tell my journey to get the green card, so I can help as many people as possible, not just to understand the whole process but also to keep their minds sane during the long wait. When I first started, I had no idea how the whole process works. So, first you need to figure out which green card category you will apply. Focusing on people with PhD, you can do EB-1 or EB-2. People from India and China usually apply for EB-1A, because the line for EB-2 usually take more than 5 years for the second part. So, basically it will be EB-1A or EB2-NIW if you don’t have an employer as a sponsor. EB-1A is the extraordinary ability, and nowadays the analysis is based mostly on the citations of the papers and revision of papers. You will have to argue your importance in your area, so citation and paper revisions are the proof of your influence.
