H1B workers in the U.S. are getting Permanent Residency in Canada. And they are faced with a tough decision once their Canadian Permanent Residency is approved. Today’s podcast is inspired by the following question from Kelly.
My company is helping me with the green card process for USA. My I-140 was approved few months ago. I cannot proceed with I-485 application as the time when my EB2 priority date (Sept 2014) becomes current is many years away.
I had also applied for Canadian PR and it has already been approved. So if I move to Canada now, I can live & work there as a permanent resident.
In the future, can I come back to USA when my EB2 priority date becomes current ? and continue my green card process ?
As far as I understand, my new USA employer would have to start the green card process again under EB2 but my old priority date(Sept 2014) can be used so I don’t have to wait to file I-485. Are there any issues with this ?
