Many many people are affected by retrogression and demand for immigrant visas still remain high compared to the number allocated plus take into fact current US job unemployment do not expect it to be lifted for a long time to come. All you can do is maintain nurse experience and wait plus keep an eye on the visa bulletin that comes out monthly

thank you very much silverdragon for the reply. i am waiting for it to be lifted. it been quit a long time.

I seriously doubt it will be lifted, all you can do is wait for your PD to move along

As Silverdragon mentioned it wont be lifted anytime soon. Keep gaining the experience that you will need in the future. You're a prime example of one who's waiting patiently for their turn for a visa. It's already been 3 years and you're still waiting. People who apply now will still be waiting in 2012.

wow! you know what i think about applying to migrate to US, its a TRAGEDY!

yah.. i'm hanging tightly..but there are a lot of times i really get frustrated. a lot of job offers in different countries offer a lot easier requirements than these.

thanks:o

Priority date is the date your I140 was filed and accepted. The OP has a PD of 07/2006 so when looking at EB3 on the US visa Bulletin they just need to watch the date there and wait their turn

Years ago it was easier to get into the US but with such a high demand for visas unfortunately people are affected. There is nothing stopping you considering another country but like mentioned in another post at least you have a PD of 2006 and things will move although may be a bit slow.

I too had a PD of 08/2006 but now living in Canada and loving it that I have cancelled my application to the US and going through the process to work here in Canada as a RN

Silverdragon chose another route and ended up loving it in Canada, now she plans on staying there. If you keep your options open then you explore the possibilities of finding something better. That might not be the case with everyone but how are you ever going to know if you don't try. Patience is a virture and good things come to those that wait.

you could see your priority date on the receipt that the US embassy will issue when you finish all the requirements.

it is your hard copy and proof that your papers are already processing and your waiting to be scheduled for an interview before they give you a visa.:paw:

hey! your both right!

actually because of the agony of waiting for the US interview...I applied for Canada and now processing CARNA.

Is it ok if I make it a race which ever would come first?:imbar

I too came to Canada after getting fed-up waiitng for the US. Like SD I'm genuinly happy here, as are my kids, so I too & won't be pursuing the USA anymore.

could you tell me your story on how you process your visa to canada? how long and how much? who to talk to and how?

I'm already processing CARNA and waiting for an LMO that would come from my agent.

I would like to know if I'm on the right track...

I want to get my husband as soon as I get there.

I have no kids yet.

thanks for replying guys:up:

When you submit your application to the Canadian embassy make sure you include your husband plus if he wants to work he needs to also complete the same paperwork, which is included in with yours.

this will explain it all http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/work/index.asp

Why not just apply for a working visa? A H1B visa?
