Is it a consultancy or full time positions? Are you ok with h1b regular processing switching only with receipt numb.?

I have applied only for full time positions with GC condition.
JOINING ON RECEIPT HAS MILD RISK FACTORS, but Its normal H1B approval process. If all the documents are appropriate and validate SOW is available, You are in safe hand.If there is any issue with your documents, In that case nobody can confirm that the extension will get approved or not, although you are with CTS.

My PERM process was initiated but while I submit to GIT then EB2 filing was stopped across CTS.
My max out date is in 22.
Do anyone have any idea what is the best way I can set my expectation to get GC while in CTS?
Also please suggest me what should be my next action?

Hi
Mine was filed in last week of April and was certified in first week of June. I checked in on DOL site.

You can check the PERM status here - https://icert.doleta.gov/index.cfm?event=ehLCJRE...
Case status - PERM
This will work only if your PERM is certified after 15-Apr-2009

When i check with CTS they come back and say we haven't received any update.

to WhatIsGoingOn:



Your next action should be to try to leave that company and go to one where you can file your GC. These body shoppers are now on the crosshairs of DHS/USCIS/DOJ. Plus you have no idea when CTS will resume EB2 filing, if at all.

Congrats on your PERM approval!!
I checked this website but no updates on my case, it was filed on the 3rd week of April. Any idea how much time generally it takes?

I am a US hire for CTS from large Indian company, joined CTS with hope of GC. Now its stopped just after i have started it.Checked with HR and they said they wont transfer US hires to India unless a project is assigned. My visa expires in June-2019 max out feb 2020 but i think no one will do another 6-7 month extension if PERM/I-140 is not approved.
What are my best options?
What is the risk to transfer of H1b receipt number ?

It seems like the icert website is not reflecting any data after 5th July. My case got approved on 6th July, however I came to know today only through cognizant email notification.

My case number is now available in permchecker website. I presume, my case is approved and waiting for update from GMT. Many old cases seems to be updated on 25-Aug-2017. Any update on yours ? Wish, it gets approved for you soon.

Any Idea when CTS will resume GC process for EB2/EB3 category.Any chances of doing it?
