Due to this, Indians are waiting 10 years to get American green card
In a recent report of the American Congressional Service, it has been said that if the quota in the country for green card is removed, people from countries like India and China will come forward in this race. The Green Card allows people to settle and work permanently in America. Due to quotas, the Chinese workers have to wait for the green card to be the highest. They have to wait for 11 years and 7 months. For Indian workers, this time limit is 9 years and 10 months.
At the same time, people in the country who receive green card in less time, in El Salvador / Guatemala / Honduras, people 2 years 10 months, 2 years 8 months for the people of Vienna, 2 years in Mexico, and others 1 year 6 months have to wait.
Also if people of the same country apply for the same category then it may take longer. As of April, 2018, most of the 306,601 total Indians were IT professionals who were in line for the green card. The number of foreigners who took green card for only one category was 395,025. That is, the number of Indians was 78 per cent. These figures are of people who apply on employment basis.
