Does Amazon sponsor I-140 for new hires? I am currently outside the US and do not have authorization to work there, neither Chinese nor Indian and it seems with I-140 and DS 260 I could get work authorization faster than eg H1B. Further benefit is that it'd be directly a green card. Is this a reasonable aim? Does it require VP approval? Recruiter said they can only sponsor green card once I'm employed in the US, but they may have confused with the I-485 route.

  • This may be the best way for you but since recruiting thinks immigration means from India they likely don't know you can do that.

    You need to discuss it with the immigration lawyer they assign to you and then have the lawyer propose this to them. Start by getting the lawyer to agree it's possible and what the timeline would be and then get the manager to support it.

    The lawyer may legitimately point out problems with the approach or recommend better options.

      OK, thanks. My manager requested the recruiter to connect me to an immigration lawyer, but after a week still nothing happened. Let's see how it goes. Thanks for your take on this.

    I-140 in premium and consular processing would be the best for you as you could turn things around in just over a year.
    Is the company willing to wait that long?
