I am new to this forum.
I had recently cleared the NCLEX and have signed up with OGP.
I am yet to send the Application for Immigration visa and alien registration to OGP.
Though I am working in UK at the moment, I hold an Indian passport.
The recent letter that I got from OGP stated that due to retrogression the visa processing would be delayed by several months.
Because I am from one of the PIC countries, I understand the waiting time would be more than that for nurses from other countries
I would like to hear from anyone who has more information on this.
Thread moved to the International Forum as it is not specific to UK nursing.
You are affected by the retrogression, and currently all nurses in the world are affected. Do not expect anything to open up before next summer if you were born in one of the PIC Countries as well as Mexico........it is based 100% on where you were born, and not where you are now a citizen of or are living.
But sorry, that agency is giving you very incorrect information concerning what can be done right now for you and what can't. You are able to go thru the entire procedure up until the interview at the US Embassy, that will have to wait for the currect visa numbers to be there for you........You can submit and get approval for the I-140, as well as the DS-230..........and then just need the medical and the interview.
You may wish to consider using another company if you are already getting incorrect information from them. You could go thru the entire process and just be waiting for an interview date, and that is what is recommended.
Not what they are telling you.
