    Could it be that China is communist country that’s why ?

      I think your social score is low after spending so much time in US, so people can't book a flight back and would need to take train instead. On a route from US to China, it significantly limits your transportation options.

    Going back to China would mean having to join the 9-9-6 culture. Most people who’ve worked 40-50 hours in the US would not want that.

      Some do when companies like Alibaba double their US comp and relocated them back to China with housing stipends.

      W/o 996, China won't build the mobile internet 10 years advanced than the U.S.

    I think the fact that they still have a path to Green card (though long) helps them stay. For Indians in EB2/3 the date to get gc is currently set to infinity.

    One big difference is that you can go back to India and live much cheaper than here. When you go back to China, real estate prices are Bay Area levels in decent areas of Shanghai or HKG where many would like to be.

    My impression is that while some Indians like to fantasize about returning, very few actually do.

      L6 in Amazon. If couple works then L5 is good enough too.

      Is it the experience what you're referring to or a financial milestone to reach before moving?

      I'm guessing one needs to atleast have $500k in assets before seriously considering a move to India. Is my understanding right?

      Financial milestone based on what you get paid in India.

      I moved with 200k in assets. A decent house and 100k extra is all you need, rest of the investments you build up over time while in India. Also depends which city are you moving into.

      Ofcourse it is all relative and depends on your lifestyle, kids etc.

      Interesting. A decent house in Bangalore costs 1-2Cr.

      Which would be about 150- 300k USD, that was one of the factor which I used in $500k calculation.

      But, it's great that you were able to move back and also be happy. To me, it is such a hard decision to make. Good luck, eitherways!

    They move back more than Indians do.
    But they find jobs in Chinese companies, not in a remote office of a US company. So why ask on blind.

    I was shocked to see more Chinese population than Indians in Washington.
    Usually Chinese go back.
    About blind, common guys..they have their own app for every US app.

  • Most of my Chinese friend have advanced degree and a decent job which covers long-term expenses like housing. They only come back to China because a) failed H1B lottery b) better career opportunity for senior positions(>L5 @ Google)

    Can they have more than 1 child? How does it feel to be told how many kids you can have

    • Recent policy change allows 2 children... However, due to high breeding/education cost in major cities, most of my colleagues still choose single child

    Haha. The number of posts of Indians is a very tiny percentage of people.
