Good thought to put this poll up.

I have a suggestion: choices could be:

1. EB3 and already ported
2. EB3 and working on porting
3. EB3 and looking for avenues to port but not started the process yet
4. EB3 and would port but no support or sponsor in this economy; so not doing it.
5. EB3 and not interested in porting; I think I will be fine.

What do you think?

(My personal opinion is that any EB3, who can port and has a chance/opportunity to port, should port ASAP. People can differ on this though and every person's circustances are different.)

Sorry to dampen the spirits..... Going from EB3 to EB2 doesn't solve anything. EB2 is backlogged and any additions will only further delay. Maybe it will be moving from the fire to a pan - but the heat is still there.

Finding solutions legislatively is still the best option. It is slow, however, if the pressure is worked properly, it has a better chance of solving all the problems than porting. Just my two cents.......

People who are "ELIGIBLE" to port, are ELIGIBLE. Legally so. If they were allowed before, then they would have filed for EB-2 directly, wouldn't they?

Hence, logically, if they is a backlog in EB-3 that means for some reasons or other, they aren't meant for EB-2. Which means, that even if porting from EB3 to EB2 happens, its going to be very negligible number. So let not there be any apprehensions that there would be a massive number of porting cases, so as to back-log Eb-2. Its a false apprehension which as absolutely no rationality.

I have different thoughts on that. There are three groups of people who are porting curently and My guess is that approximately half of all EB3 India people who are stuck badly are working on it. (see the poll results above).

These fall into three broad categories:

1. People who have gotten promoted to managerial level where job description can justify "masters" degree requirement (MS or MBA), and they masters. They are doing it with the same company.

2. People who do not have a masters or job description can not justify masters, but they do have "experience" gained at the sponsoring employer; but they cannot use that experience criteria with the same employer; they are porting to EB2 with a different employer (in some cases, related employer or vendor with different tax ID) using the "experience criteria"

3. People who would otherwise have qualified for EB2 to begin with but are stuck in EB3 due to attorneys who filed EB3 as "it would be easy to be approved". Now many of them are using the same labor and filing new I 140 under EB2. While others are filing new PERM and new I 140 under EB2.

Porting is going on and IT IS NOT NEGLIGIBLE. I dont think anyone know the extent though. Polls such as the one in this thread can throw some more light on that.

Good Luck to all....

completely agree with you. Long term and good solution is legislative and we must do all we can do achieve that.

However, at individual level, anyone who can port to a category higher, should do that; it is only a normal human instinct!
