    HI everyone

    i have an employer from OHIO and im done with the interview last month theysaid they're gonna think what kind of visa they will provide me.. yesterday i talked to them and said they chose immigrant visa since working visa has a high risk of getting denied.
    i know immigrant visa will take time, they said it will take like 1 and a half to 2 yrs of processing.. I know that it's not true coz i can hear alot of stories that it really takes a whole lot of time (3 to 5 yrs?)

    my question is:

    1. it's 2012 already,, is it still gonna take 3 to 5 yrs? before i get the visa?...
    2. is it the same process for us nurses to have immigrant visa with the family petition which i believe is also immigrant visa??

    hope you can give me an idea with this. thank YOU

    Going with an agency will make no difference. The process for family is longer than with an employer. Current processing times for EB3 which is what nurses come under is 2006 and many are still in front of you waiting so doubt it will change much in the next few years

    guys, how do you find an employer? can you tell me what agency you are referring to that finds an employer for you..

    should i first find and employer before taking the NCLEX or take the NCLEX then find an employer

    Finding an employer will be very difficult, especially one that will wait 6 years until you get a Green Card.

    I'm not following this thread. I just happen to have read your post. I don't know when your employer filed you papers or if it has already been filed, but if your employer is sponsoring you as a Registered Nurse, I STRONGLY advice you to visit the USCIS website. Call them and seek information about the procedure you are doing and be guided accordingly.
