Washington, September 13
Millions of people stuck for years in the employment-based Green Card backlog in the US, including a sizable number of Indians, can hope for a lawful permanent residency in America by paying a supplemental fee if a new House Bill is passed into law.
The move, if included in the reconciliation package and passed into law, is expected to help thousands of Indian IT professionals who are stuck in an agonising Green Card backlog.
A Green Card, known officially as a Permanent Resident Card, is a document issued to immigrants as evidence that the bearer has been granted the privilege of residing permanently in the US.
According to the committee print released by the US House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, which has the jurisdiction over immigration, an employment-based immigrant applicant with a “priority date that is more than two years before” can adjust to permanent residence without numerical limits by paying a “supplemental fee of USD 5,000”. — PTI
