    For Amazon, yes that seems to be the latest that I have heard.

      OP
      Is it true that Amazon only applies for EB3 for SDE1 and that EB2 is only reserved for SDE2?

  • If you have a H-1, they can start on day 1. I was given an option on the Visa questionairre asking if I want to start

      That's odd bcos those who dont have h1b need green card the most

    • Wait I thought you need a H-1 to file for perm, isn't it the case?

      I didn't have a h1b. I still file perm. Didnt get h1b in the end and green card ead saved me

      Perm is role specific and not person specific. So it doesn’t matter if one is on F1. But I am prob the wrong person to comment on this.

      SDE 1 can apply but is not recommended. Sometimes attorneys don’t go with it. MS might help. They go through a leveling process where they have to justify to the government that you qualify. It’s not a matter of Amazon agrees. There’s more to it.

    Most companies want you to be on H1/L visa and not OPT before applying for GC. They won’t even start PERM

    Form what I heard there's no waiting period. You can apply for GC on day 1. May be someone from Amazon may confirm.

    If you have H1B you can start from day 1.
    L4 onwards are eligible. Amazon is supportive in this regard.
