  • Eb3 or Eb2 - M.C.A Degree - clarification

    Hi ,

    My employer has filed LABOR in March 2005 just before closing old RIR process.
    Recently my labor got approved, but my lawyer is saying that my case cannot be filed in EB2 but he can file in EB3
    because i have B.Sc(math,phys,chem) - 3 Yrs degree + M.C.A(Master of Computer Applications - 3 Years

    1) My bachelor degree is 3 yrs so USICS is not considering this in to EB2 , even though i have M.C.A degree.. is this true ?

    2) I have one or two months gap in my total experience
    so by March 2005 i will be having some two months less - will they consider exact 5 yrs will this be a problem ?

        Qualification for EB2

        I am planning to file my case under EB2, but not sure wether I qualify for EB2 or not. I have B.Sc (2 years) + MCS (2 years) = 16 years education. I also have 6 years of programming experience. Do I comfortably qualify for EB2?

        My case has already been filed in EB3 and have got 140 approved, but due to painful retrogression in EB3, I am planning to switch to EB2.

        Also, if I am able to file under EB2, can I still keep my EB3 priority date?

        I will really appreciate your response in this regard.

          EB2 or EB3 determined by job

          Whether you apply under EB2 or EB3 does NOT depend on your personal qualification/degrees. It is determined by your job requirement. If your job only requires BS/BA degrees, you can only file under EB3. If your job requires MS/MA degrees, you may file under EB2.
