Hi everyone, Amazon agreed to file a EB1 on my behalf, what are the time lines for actually getting approved under the EB1 process? Does anyone here have experience with this?
(Edits based on the replies)
Nationality : Indian
Visa sub type : EB1 - B (the lawyers said eb1 for outstanding researcher)
a reply referred me to the visa bulletin, according to that currently the EB1 processing date for India is 1 Jan 2015. So if Amazon is only able to file the I 140 by 1 Jan 2020 then does that mean there'll be a wait of 5 years? More importantly I am on OPT right now, is it possible that I will run out of visa during while waiting for I 140 to get approved?
(some more info)
on further googling it had initially seemed to me that following 4 forms could be filed concurrently. But on uscis website I found that employment based applicants can file concurrently only if a visa number is immediately available. But on reading further, I found a chart which shows when an Indian national can file for adjustment of status for employment based pref visa, and that date was 15 March 2017
i140 - immigration petition
i485 - application to adjust status
i765 - employment authorization
i131 - advanced parole
so that means that I won't be able to file concurrently but I will be able to file i485 after roughly 2.5 years right?
All have different timelines with highly variable probability of success. Also depends on your country of birth
