The recent series of layoffs in the US tech industry has been a major blow to thousands of Indian IT professionals who were employed in companies like Google, Microsoft, Facebook and Amazon.

According to The Washington Post, nearly 200,000 IT workers have been laid off since November last year, with a significant number of them being Indian IT professionals on H-1B and L1 visas. For these professionals, the termination of their employment has put them in a difficult situation as they now have to find new employment within the stipulated period under their work visas in order to stay in the country.

To make matters worse, Google has stopped Program Electronic Review Management (PERM) filing for their employees on H-1B, and it is quite likely that the other companies will do the same. This means that the hope of Green Card for these professionals have ended.


However, there is still a way for these professionals to stay in the US permanently and obtain Work Authorization within a few months! Filing an EB-5 petition now can get you an EAD and Advance parole in a matter of months. The EB-5 program now also includes Set-Aside Visas & Priority Processing that helps skip country backlogs for Indian and Chinese Investors who invest in Rural EB-5 Projects.

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact EB5 United or view our EB-5 Program Guide.
