That's not true. You can qualify. You must take the IELTS first and get your Indian degree evaluated through WES or another agency.

Topic: Why IV so eager that H1Bs pay $1K to DACA illegals in HR 392?

It is not being paid to the illegals. The fee will go towards border security costs (the wall). They are proposing this as a way to ease budgetary negotiations. The fee will be paid by those who don't want to be counted against country cap. Think of it as premium processing fee. If HR 392 does actually relieve the EB backlog, the fee proposal is actually quite good.

Topic: H.R. 392, Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act

Just read the text of HR392 and related bill HR 670 and S281. It practically allots 85% of visas to India and China for the first year, 90% for the second and third year and 25% (for each country) thereafter. If combined with RAISE act, it will become irrelevant since RAISE act completely removes per country limits. I don't see how this reduces the backlog quickly and effectively.

Does it also have language that makes use of unused numbers in the past to clear the backlog? I couldn't find it.

Most lawmakers are indifferent to or unaware of the EB backlog. If it is properly pushed, it can be included in the DACA fix.

Most likely because of contract duration. They have been enforcing this irrespective of I-140 for a long time now.

Topic: N0 HR392 in DACA Bill

Whenever you hear the key words end chain migrations, end diversity lottery and merit based, all that implies only one proposal right now = RAISE ACT. Tom Cotton was one of the senators meeting Trump the other day. RAISE act is great but only if it also includes an EB backlog fix.
We need to push for a backlog fix ASAP. I don't see IV, or any other organisation talking about it. HR392 is a fix for the EB backlog, but pushing it by that name may not work.

Topic: Money return on premium i140

It is 15 calendar days and they will issue a refund if no action is taken within 15 days of the official receipt notice date. The refund will be given to your employer (the petitioner), you will have to get it from them if you paid for it.

Topic: Raise Act

In it's current form, Raise act protects neither I-485 pending persons nor I-140 approved persons.

You are correct, that I-140 approved is not a status. I am just hoping they do amend it such that some subset gets grandfathered, because otherwise it is a good law.

In some ways, pending I-485's are even less protected than someone in a non-immigrant status. When you travel and return on AP, technically you have not been admitted to the US, you have been paroled. That means your actual admittance will happen in future. So, if there is a 'bulk purge', a parolee has to leave immediately while a non-immigrant can stay until their I-94 expires. However, you are right that generally it is better to have a pending I-485 and any grandfathering is highly likely to be beneficial to them.

About the likelihood of passage, you are correct that it is very difficult. But, tax reform was supposed to be difficult too and that is an almost done deal. Democrats only care about DACA and POTUS has been willing to negotiate on that point. If POTUS sells a bill, extreme right is more likely to listen.

Topic: Raise Act


Why should existing approved I140 be grandfathered? Everybody who applied I485 under the existing Rules at the time new new Rule is becoming law should be grandfathered but nobody else.
You have enough points or not.



Because what separates an I485 pending person from an I140 approved person is an arbitrary filing restriction. People with 2010 PD's have filed 485 a few years ago, but they are handing out GC's to 2008 PD today. The progression and retrogression of PD is determined by some simple forecasting algorithm that DOS/DHS uses. (It is a function of pending 485's, their processing times and a forecast/estimate of how many applications they predict).

Grandfathering need not apply to all I-140 approvals and only a sub-set. Hope they come up with a rational and reasonable approach to determining who gets grandfathered.

Topic: Raise Act

Actually, almost everything about the RAISE act is great, except for the fact that it does not grandfather or protect the EB2/EB3 people already in line. If they just make some change that protects these people, it will be a great bill.

frankly i dont want HR 392 to pass. if it does it means i will be current and as i am currently in india it will be impossible for me to get back to usa with a new h1b. hope it fails





That's stupid, if it becomes current you can still come to US on H1B and then file for adjustment (if it remains current). Your I-140 filing petitioner can also amend hte petition to make it consular processing and you can process that way.

No need to panic. They just want to make sure they don't have to refund PP fees because they couldn't process in 15 days. They had done this back in 2015 also, and reinstated PP within 50-60 days.
