Green card possibility for Indian Born - AUS PR holder.

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Good day. I worked in US from 2010 till 2014 on my H1B. I moved to AUS after getting my AUS PR in early 2015 and have an one year old son who is now an AUS citizen. 

1. Can i come back to US with the H1B i have so that i can skip the H1B lottery queue?
2. Can i apply for GC with my son's AUS citizenship, port my PD based on AUS nationality and get my GC sooner?


PS i heard from one of my friend that this is possible. But just want to check with you all.

You can not use your son's citizenship.

1. You should be able to reclaim the remainder 2 years of H1. Once you become an Australian Citizen, you are eligible for the E3 visa which you can look up. That gives you a lot of leeway.

2. Priority dates are based on your country of birth and not nationality. So NO.
