EB2 Green Card
I have 3 yr BSc(Computer Science)+ 2 yr MSc(Information Technology)from India and I completed my MSc on May 2003 and I am currently working for my current employer from July 2008 and my job description requires Masters degree + 2 yrs to perform the job. Overall I started my career from Jan 2000 - Till Date. Am I eligible for EB2 please let me know? Also can u explain, will I fall into this category 3 yr bachelors degree + 2 yr masters degree = bachelors degree + 1 year and would require 5 yrs progressive experience to qualify under the EB2?
You could qualify for EB-2 under BS + 5.
I've been working for the company that is sponsoring my green card for the past 2.5 years and some of the experiences/skills required in the Job Description were acquired working with this company. Is it valid to include those skills on the Job Description? Should I have acquired those skills before?
It is possible to use the after-acquired skills only if the job in the past and the green card job are more than 50% different.
I completed my master’s degree last summer and started working with a company from 2 months. I am in OPT status right now and I wanted to know, if I am eligible to file for Green Card process with my current employer. If yes can I file in EB2? I have 2 years IT experience in India If no, do I have to wait until I get H1b. Is the Green card process dependent on H1B?
This question requires your lawyers to assess the case. Generally speaking nothing stops you from filing a PERM application while on OPT and an Eb2 appears possible.
I am on EB3 category and have been working in the IT sector for the last 6 years and one year ago I completed my MBA too. I am currently working as a contractor and using my EAD. I am on Adjustment of status right now. Is it possible to change my category from EB3 to EB2?
It is possible, but the green card will have to be started again from PERM.
