I understand that most of you are quite worried. I know that OGP sent out a letter to all of you that you would be affected. But they messed things up for many of you. Most of their nurses... Read More

    yes i can ...if a pay the contract breeching amount to ogp they says.they rung me up couple of days before and said they haven't got any hospitals in newjersy atall ...kept me waiting since jan 2005.now they r looking for job nearby newjersy state.ogp have lots of jobs if ur willing to relocate to anywhere in usa...like newmexico,neworleans,lousiana...etc..this is my experience with ogp.newjersy didn't give me license till i has ssn and green card.i waited 12 months for license just because i did n't had ssn.i got my ssn when i went to us becz my initial 6 months visa was due to expire and ogp didn't had any placement offers,so i went to get my green card before 6 months expires and applied for the ssn same time and got it.and nj license been issued after submitting all these at once.
    dont ogp mind that you have a greencard which they sponsored but are not working for them?

    i agree its one large breach fee!!
    but surely your visa is issued because you intend to work for that company, at least wont the uscis see it like that?
    not sure how it works really

    There is 1 thing i don't understand b4 the 1st retrogression how did UK nurses get out to the USA which visa category were nurses in?
    When does the next hearing go through the one were 90,000 visa's would be made available again for nurses?

    Like many others we were at pkt 3 and then got retrogressed back to 2002 don't know why we were retrogressed but have heard nothing from anyone, and becoming increasingly frustrated by it all, we feel our lives have been in limbo for 3 years now, and we can see no way out.

    nurses was on schedule A but in Jan that was removed and I think we went to E3. Everyone was retrogressed cos there was no visas and still affecting everyone at the moment although I think only the PIC countries was expected to be hit initially unfortunately if has affected all.

    Thats what confuses me so much, schedule A was removed I presume that was the reclaimed 50,000 visa's but how or under which visa group did all the UK nurses go on before these 50,000 visa's were made available?
    Like you Anna we have been retrogressed back to the year 2002 and as yet no movement on that date, but according to the links the USA are trying to reclaim another 90,000 visa's but unsure when it gets voted on (so to speak)
    and if it does get approved when are we likely to see some movement.
    It is all so confusing to us as i am sure everyone else is confused.

    As far as I know we was on schedule A before the reclaimed visas as we was fast tracked but at the moment they have decided to take schedule A off the list

    Anna you are a gem i just presumed the schedule A was set up just for the 50,000 visa's and that why it was removed now i know differently thank you for clearing that point up

    All depends on whether retrogression is lifted or not, if it is you are looking at approx 12 to 18 months once filing as long as nothing delays you like employer backing out

    It has nothing to do with where you are based, but 100% with where you were born. If you were born in India, and are living in the UK, you will be affected majorly.

    And it is not just for people that are in those countries, but also anywhere in the world, determination is made by birth place, not where you were raised, or where you even hold a passport from currently.

    hi suzanne this is my 1st post but been reading for quite sometime,admire the work you do here. im one of the many filipino new grads here waiting. im just curious with what you said that being affected by retrogression is based on where you were born? i was actually born in iran when my parents used to be contract workers as physicians but the family went back to the philippines when i was 2 so i actually grew up here in manila and we are filipinos. my birth certificate(NSO) indicates iran as place of birth but i am a filipino citizen. i just wanted to clarify what you mean, does that count?:spin:thank you and more power to you and the rest contributing here.

    It all goes on place of birth so would go on your place indicated on certificate. Saying that at the moment makes no difference as everyone is affected and currently the Philippines and rest of the world has the same processing date
