I am an Indian citizen currently in USA.I have applied for Green card , I got labor clearance and now I 140 is in process.
At this stage ,I got citizenship from Singapore which I applied previously as I have relatives and ancestral properties there and thought of settling over there.
So my question here is ,can I add my second citizenship in I 140 processing at this stage .If yes , what will my priority date. Will it be based on Indian citizenship or Singapore citizenship.
Your attorney can request "alternative state chargeabilty", meaning for your immigrant visa to be "charged" ( subtracted) from the Singaporean quota, which is. Always current, as opposed to the Indian quota which lately is always badly backlogged I the employment based category.
I agree with Mr. Shusterman. Country of chargibility is country of birth and so if you were born in India, you will be subject that country's quota. If your wife is applying with you and she is born in a different country, you may seek her country of chargibility for both of you.
