The EB3 (Employment Based 3) Category for Indians and people around the world is moving at such a slow pace that some are saying it will take around 70 years to get a permanent residence (greencard).  Unfortunately at this pace it is impossible to predict if the waiting time will be reduced.  Many are now disillusioned about any legislation which will reduce the waiting time.  Unfortunately possible legislation such as HR 3012 did not make it through the Senate. This means nobody can rely on such laws to be able to expedite their cases.

One possible solution is to convert your category from EB3 to EB2.  As you you will find out, the word “conversion” is not the right word on this case.  On our radio show on Saturday we will discuss about the possibilities for people on EB3, so please listen to the show on Saturday March 17 from 7 pm on

We will also release a Youtube video on this matter. Check on Monday and hopefully we will have a good discussion on what can be done to help those who are suffering from an “endless wait”.
