Hello, I ll be joining Msft on my h1. I heard Msft will file your green card in two months of your joining . Is that true? What is the timeline for green card initiation
- They will surely file before your VISA runs out but not necessarily within 2months. People close to their VISA expiry date gets the first priority.
- Personal story -
Hiring Manager during interview - we do everything on premium basis. Your GC will start within 2months.
HR during new hire orientation - You will get mail from Immigrations within 2months.
Immigration email Towards the end of the 2months - we are giving priority to people who are close to expiry date and you are on a waitlist. This was right after Trump’s travel ban and employees from those countries got priority.
Anyway, they do it before you enter into a danger zone. No need to worry.Jan 100
