Topic: PERM application for CTS (Cognizant) employees

I'm kind of in a similar situation but still in the US.

I'm not clear on why you had to move back to India? Was your perm not filed 365 days prior to your max out date?

Also, in that case how did you get an extension while you're in india?

My case was filed 365 days prior to Max out date because of which I was able to get further extension and continue here.

My case was appealed as they got denial on perm.

Topic: conversion of EB3 to EB1

You made a good point. I thought of the same thing. But my company has insisted me upon filing the Green card under EB3 category so that I can get extension as my H1b is maxing out next year. They have not promised me that they would file under EB1 later. They say they may file if I am eligible at that time. I am not eligible for EB1 right now as I have never worked with this company offshore. I joined them here in the US.

Since I was hired in the US last year, I would need to make an extra effort to find a way to go back to India or any other country for one year (working in the capacity of Project Manager) through the company and then come back to the US.

Since they are filing my Green card in EB3 category, I was thinking that once my H1 max out next year and then if the I140 is approved by then and assuming that I get 3 years of extension (as I was told by my friends), can I then stay out of the US for 1 year to fulfill the requirement of being outside of US with the same company for 1 year in the capacity of a Project Manager?

That's my main doubt. Is it different having extension after I140 approval and wondering if there is a restriction that one can't stay outside of US? Some of my friends have a doubt that if I can stay outside of US while I hold an H1b. But I have done that in the past as my old company would transfer me back to India when my project was over. Although I just stayed for a couple of months (3-4 months at the max) in between my projects.

To be eligible for EB1, you need to work for at least one year for the same company outside of US. Your company needs to have a subsidiary in that country.

Topic: conversion of EB3 to EB1

My company is filing my GC in EB3 category. I joined the company as a Project Manager in the US and they have offshore operations in India as well.

My H1 is maxing out next year (in about 12-13 months).

Assuming if I get my I-140 approval within a year and after that I get my H1b extension for another 3 years. Can I then spend 1 year outside of US while my H1b is valid? I would want to work for the same company as a Project Manager at offshore.

1. My question is, would that make me eligible for an EB-1 category after I have stayed outside of US for 1 year?

2. Can I stay out of the US while working for the same company in India while I have my 3 years of extension of H1 based on my GC filing (under EB-3 category). And then come back to the US and file through the same company under EB-1 category?
