I am an Indian working on an H1B Visa for the past 6 months. My employer has said that he wants to file a Green Card Application for me. Though I am have a masters education from India (equivalent to US masters), i am employed at a entry level position. My concern is that if my employer files a Green Card for me under the EB3 Category I might never see its end. (since I am from India). Should I talk to my employer and try to convince him to file under EB2 for me? How will the salary levels in that case change? I am currently getting $52K as a staff accountant. (CPA exam passed)
The determination about EB-2 and EB-3 depends upon the requirements for the position being offered in the PERM on a full time and permanent basis. Based upon the information that you have provided it would seem that your case can be treated as an EB-2 case. However, a more thorough examination of the facts could show otherwise. You and your employer should speak to a qualified business immigration lawyer who can explain the upsides and the downsides to doing a case as either an EB-2 or EB-3 case.
