Apple India -> US movement

I have an offer from Apple, India.
I'm trying to evaluate how easy/hard is it to move to Apple Cupertino office.

For example, Microsoft in India has a minimum L62 rule. Amazon is very generous in moving folks to the US. I have no idea about Apple.

1) does apple encourage engineer movement from India to US ?
2) is there a minimum level eligibility ?
3) is there a minimum time limit for gaining eligibility ?

Offer: ICT3 / TC: 50 lacs/annum

    With 50 lpa and potential future growth, you are better off in India, not worth the hassle of coming to US from financial perspective. But if you want to experience nice weather, less politics in workplace, exposure, visa trauma, loneliness / depression, then kindly do the needful😝

    Sincere advice : If you are getting 50 lakhs in India don’t move to the US .If you are moving come with the mindset that it’s a 2 year change at max .Just not worth it with current visa rules

    At 50LPA you can live in luxury there. Why come here to do smaller things like laundry, cooking, cleaning etc. you can outsource all that in India. There is no grass on the other side if you make 50LPA. Couple of things such as better weather and food quality is a little harder to get in India. Everything else here sucks in America. Bad commutes inflated housing prices health insurance etc etc and etc.

      Monthly expense including carS cannot be 2500. Don’t know what world you’re living in but if you eat out conservatively it’ll cost two people $1000 bucks. You’re also not accounting vacations and other spending that OP may have. So no, 200K is not enough.

      Yes this is not including vacations as I don’t know how often OP travels .I don’t drive but from what My friends say 1000$/month is more than enough for a car .And this is a conservative estimate as I said assuming OP lives frugal.

      You guys are forgetting the RSU component which will be the major factor for saving.

      No matter the calculations be, I feel one can easily save double the amount, if not more, in US compared to India. This is assuming that one’s better half is working in India and doesn’t work in US. Let’s say both of them work then the saving sky rockets!!

    50LPA for ICT3. I highly doubt it.

      Why is that so ?
      I had a few counter offers as well.
      Anyway, the base salary is around 35 lacs, 14 lacs of stocks a year, 4 lacs joining bonus and some target performance bonus.
