Its more than 12 yrs . Still waiting for the GC .....

If a LION is put in CAGE for more year, it loses its original characters and behave more like CAGE domestic pet like dog / cat.

Similarly, this H1-B and GC is more of external CAGE for every VISA candidate which restrict the individual from his potential. After been tied to this cage for LONG years, you end up behaving like a safe player than the risk taker in your early IT career !!!.
came in 2006 filed EB2 2007 and greened 2012. 5 year wait killed all the enthusiasm I had.
After waiting for all these years, my freinds life wont be any different afterwards as most will be way past our maximum productivity/Innovation. Atleast our Kids will have a better chance

Default Waiting since Jan 2003

Came in Nov 2000. Started process in early 2002 but finally labor was filed in 2003 Jan.

Was wondering how some of the oldest people in waiting (1992/94) were maintaining their status for 8-12 years if their GC was not filed. AFAIK H1 is only valid for 6 yrs, F1 may add few years, but it will make people eligible for EB2/EB1 as well.

Came in 1999. Started GC in 2002. I have several H1 extensions and AP/EAD renewal documents. They are the proof of ageing and slothfulness of this system.

came here in Feb 2000. Initiated process internally (in the company) in April 2004. EB3-I PD of Oct 2004. Still waiting...
This thread is very interesting.Do not understand guys came in 1992,1996 why they did file in 2002 2003 etc. Of course I did a mistake not filing in 2001 though I got opportunity from my consulting employer.Now everyday I curse myself for my stupid mistake.

The dates were current then for you for some time. You probably got stuck in name checks else you would have got your greencard by 2005 when the big retrogression started. Those who are new should read about it and what happened back then at

My scenario is of a very long wait before the Labor was done. It took me almost 10 years since coming to US to get the labor approved. I believe mine will be the longest running case when this question comes up after 5-6 years - heh.

Came to US in Dec 2002 - F1 visa
Joined Company #1 in Aug 2004 - first H1B
Did not file GC with Company #1 as the business was not doing good
Joined Company #2 in Oct 2006, promised they will file GC when I joined them, but in 2 months they backed out and said - no more GC policy.
Had to stick with Company #2 due to a medical issue in family that came up.
Finally left and joined Company #3 in Aug 2008
Company #3 filed EB3 Labor in March 2009
Labor Audited in Dec 2009
Labor Rejected in March 2011, Appealed
Appeal Rejected in Sept 2011,
Filed second Labor Application - EB2 this time - April 2012
Labor finally approved - Aug 2012
I140 approved - Sept 2012
Hoping for a 3 yr extension on h1 now
Now waiting ...

* Came to the US in June 2000.
* Filed under EB3 in Sep 2004
*Thought that since Employer filed from Iowa which had one of the lowest wait times
GC would be quick....but by then the process became centralized

Wow, such long wait times. This is heart breaking. Just an idea. We should make a huge poster or something of that sort - with people's name/signature against their wait times. How much they have paid in taxes, SS. The little milestones they have achieved in their lives while living here - need to tell a story. Post it on reddit, other social media websites .... this *might* get picked up in the main stream. Just a thought.

Red face Most people on this thread are EB3

Does HR 3012 have any Hopes! Do we have any other piece meal smaller bills like HR3012 which can help the backlog situation? Because CIR seems like a far fetched target...
