- Twitch / Eng UrgentpizamoreI'm really confused. Isn't the whole point of tn that you can't apply for immigration and gc? Hence why they want you to move to h1b first before applying for gc? How do you explain to border folks that you are both tn and applying for gc at the same time?
- Lawyers are full of $hit and want to make extra money by selling H1B to employers. The only benefit of H1/L1 is they can be kept and extended while I-485 is pending.
You should go to this forum and read all about TN2GC process (and ask questions there if you’re still confused):
- I guess Second question is. If you want to change jobs, are you basically stuck? Ie you can transfer green card, and at the same time, you can't quit job otherwise your gc process is dead, and you can't come back with a tn anymore given declared immigration intent
- You need to educate a lot more about visas, GC steps and TN in particular. I am not gonna spend time here on Blind to explain these to you. I already gave you a forum to go to. Without understanding the steps involved for a GC application, it seems to be hard to explain this to you.
A couple of pints though:
1) You can be on TN for a long time. I was on TN for over 10 years.
2) The only time you’ve formally demonstrated immigrant intent is when you file for I-485. Now don’t ask me what I-485 is and do your own research.
- Google GoogleWaveIt's not a problem. I have done it multiple times. When you enter with AP, you are not entering with TN status anymore. Your status will Paroled not TN. (Make sure your I-94 reflects that). You have to go to secondary every time so add 1-2 hours to your travel schedule.
- Just make sure you have an extension, do not apply when you are on the 1 year period. Your extension can last as long as 3 years after your visa expires.
