EB-2 Permanent Resident

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

My employer is currently in the process of sponsoring me for permanent resident status - under the EB-2 category. I am currently on a H1-B visa (expires in September 2015). My extensions for the H1-B is also underway.

Wondering if anyone can shed any light on how long ETA9089's are taking for processing. My attorney filed on 2/10 and said approximately 5.5 months. Just checking to see what anyone else is experiencing?

Thanks,

Lee

Hello Lee!

I don't know how relevant my information is to you, but I thought I would share it anyway. My labour certificate was filed in April 2014 and approved at the end of September 2014, so about 5.5 months. I'm not sure if current processing times differ. My story did not turn out well, however. My H1-B extension expired at the end of September also, and it took 5 weeks for the lawyers to receive the certified hard copy required to file premium processing of the I-140, so I ran out of time and had to move back to Britain for consular processing instead of AOS....and I'm still here waiting. It is unusual for it to take that long,,...I was unlucky.

As yours was filed in February, it should be okay, as long as it is a solid application and not audited. I would think you can get your I-140 filed before September. I wish you luck, I know how stressful this process is!
