  • and I just got my green card in December.

  • Tide.

  • Uh, it's been just such a relief.

  • I'm about to make ice cream.

  • Ice cream is actually extremely easy to make.

  • Luckily, I got based one young.

  • The first try got so locking my heart was just in my throat.

  • Hi, everyone.

  • Welcome back to my channel in this video today.

  • I want to tell you more about how I got my green card and my story of moving to the U.

  • S.

  • So if you're curious, stay tuned.

  • I'm currently actually in the kitchen because I'm about to make ice cream.

  • And I've been making a lot of ice cream last year and to Dan going to a potluck in the end of the day, so Oh, my God.

  • I just had a minor heart attack because I thought I forgot to put the milk.

  • I'm cream into the fridge when I've got it yesterday.

  • But it's here anyway, so I'm going to a potluck today.

  • So, um, the thing that I'm gonna bring to the potluck is ice cream.

  • Very excited, having made ice cream in some time now for those of you who don't know me welcome to the channel, first of all, but second of all, my name is new.

  • Bomb and I live and work in silicon Valium in San Francisco, specifically.

  • And I moved here full time.

  • I mean, to live here permanently three years ago.

  • It's actually gonna be exactly three years in just a few weeks.

  • And before that, I also came to Silicon Valley to San Francisco to intern while I was still in college.

  • And I went to college in Canada, but basically full time.

  • I've been living non stop in San Francisco for three years, and I just got my green card in December.

  • So just about, like, eight months ago.

  • Okay, Okay.

  • I scream.

  • I scream for ice cream.

  • We need 1.5 cups of milk here.

  • What 1/2 on dhe.

  • Then we need 1.5 cups off cream.

  • So I used 1 to 1 ratio for making ice cream.

  • Ice cream is actually extremely easy to make.

  • Not a lot of people realize that, and it's a lot of fun.

  • I really enjoy it.

  • That's why you know, last year was making a ton of it like literally every week.

  • I would make probably two or three batches of ice come.

  • So you can imagine how much I ate were doing cream.

  • 1.5.

  • Yeah.

  • And then we're just gonna put sugar and eggs and flavor.

  • And I love making ice cream with teeth Flee Where some probably gonna do Earl Grey or Jasmine today while I'm starting my ice cream.

  • I'll tell you guys a little more.

  • So I moved here three years ago, and I first moved on a J one visa, which is a tree needed.

  • The reason why I moved on the Trini visa to begin with was because I wasn't able to get the h one b work visa in the cycle that I was going to work full time.

  • And I worked at Airbnb at the time I works in the software engineer.

  • So basically, how it works is for you to apply to a working visa, which is the H one B visa in the States.

  • You need to apply in April.

  • I think it's like April 15th or something like that is the cut off date when you can apply.

  • And essentially, you can only apply once a year, like literally only once a year and then the other thing is that these is actually water is so you might be a totally illegible.

  • I'm just looking at my ice come situation.

  • So you might be totally illegible for the visa.

  • You know, your documents might be it right and everything.

  • But then after you get approved for eligibility, you're actually put in the pool with all the applicants because ultimately, if you don't have a master's degree, but you only have a bachelor's degree, you only have about 30 percent chances to get the visa because it is, believe it or not, a water.

  • It's essentially What happened is I wasn't able to apply for this visa in April because for to apply, you have to have a diploma as part of your application.

  • And I actually didn't graduate of time.

  • Only graduated in August that year because I decided to pick up a computer science minor for those of you again who don't know me.

  • I studied chemical engineering in university as my major and basically because I picked up a computer science minor only graduated in all this.

  • So one story short, I wasn't eligible to apply for the H one b.

  • However, there is kind of a loophole where you can work full time, but the company applies for trainee visa for you.

  • So what Airbnb did for me is we applied for a J one visa, which can be obtained up to 12 months and essentially, you know, on paper for the visa, I was a trainee, But in reality, I was already a full time employees.

  • So don't tell anyone, but this exists.

  • You can definitely get a G one visa already working full time.

  • What happens is I got lucky and got the J one visa and once and got lucky because I already had one uses before because I entrant in the U.

  • S before.

  • So I was a little worried that I'm not gonna be able to get it because I've already had these visas before, But I got the visa then the premise was that we're gonna get apply.

  • Airbnb is gonna apply for the H one b official work visa for me, that common cycles So that come in April, collectible the documents.

  • And I was very, very worried, but luckily I got based one day on the first try.

  • So about, I think in July that year and that was back in 2017.

  • I got the H one b visa like got so lucky.

  • Got it on the first try.

  • I think you're being before sponsoring my visa.

  • And then what happens is right after I got the h one b visa and I got my documents.

  • And there was a short story of how I got kind of stranded in Spain when I went for an interview to get actually and each one of these stem because that's what you have to do when you get approved, you have to leave the country and then you have to go into the U.

  • S.

  • Consulate in 1/3 party country are in your home country an interview.

  • And essentially what happened is they, like, put me under additional scrutiny, and I had to be in Spain for six weeks.

  • But luckily everything ended up well.

  • And then what happened is your employer can actually apply for unemployment CE based permanent residency.

  • So employment based green card And right after I got my h one b, I got it stepped in my passport.

  • I've reached out Thio our lawyers lawyers at Airbnb Mast.

  • Um hey, can we start the green card process?

  • So one lesson here, guys, is that, you know, if you work in the U.

  • S and you're in a similar situation when you're an immigrant, you need to be explosive with what you want.

  • It's kind of like with anything in life, no one would have reached out to me and said, Hey, you feel like you got your each one bead you want applied for a green card?

  • No, I had to reach out, had to be proactive.

  • I reached out to the lawyers and asked them, Ken was started.

  • The employment based green card process and employment based Queen Court process is essentially when your employer says that Hey, we're really wants you to stay in.

  • Our company wants you facilitated with your immigration.

  • Then we cannot hire anyone for the same position in the U.

  • S.

  • And they have to make a case to the government for why I, as an immigrant, have to fill that job versus someone else in the country.

  • So every media was thinking again so much to my employer, they were willing to go ahead with the process and essentially we started the process of employments based permanent residency.

  • I actually had to go to a store because I turned out, but I don't have any.

  • Eggs and eggs are very important.

  • Thanks.

  • Dice comes almost writing, and I put some shimmer on my eyes.

  • But anyway, the green card process my employer has put me under e B three category.

  • So when an employer applies for your green card for your permanent residency, there's five different categories that they can put you in.

  • And mine was a B three, which means a skilled worker.

  • So they're especially specific jobs in different categories that can be eligible for this category.

  • And then maybe too category is someone with an advanced degree.

  • So someone with a masters or a PhD and then category one would be a very extraordinary research truce and someone in high up world global management.

  • So if you're a big executive, you're in a different country.

  • You might be eligible for E B one.

  • So I was under a B three because again, I didn't do Masters PhD, so I wasn't in the skilled worker category and their three different stages in the process for this category, there is the Perm labor certification.

  • So basically the stage where the employer proves to the American government that there is they can't find an employee in America that can do the job the same exact job.

  • The second category is for the government to check that the employers actually paying me the right salary, they're not discriminated me, based on the fact that I'm in immigrants and I'm eligible for other criteria from the employer side.

  • And then Stage one is the actual adjustment of status.

  • I was thinking that, you know, my process is gonna take about two years, but I got really lucky because everything went really smoothly and got my perm certification in about three months.

  • And essentially, the employer actually has to put out the job posting and try recruiting people in the U.

  • S.

  • To prove to the government that they can't do that.

  • And I, from my side have to have two years of experience in the job to be illegible for even the green card process, the employer based green card process.

  • So I got the perm over with.

  • Then in about four months, we went through the other certification And then what happens after that is that you actually get E d card, which is the kind of a work permit and a travel permit that essentially it tells you that you know, you were approved for the green card.

  • You're just waiting for the green card.

  • You're waiting for the green card interview, Foreign biometrics, and, oh, like all the other stages have already been approved the perm and the immigration petition.

  • And you were given this little card the E D card, to have the ability to stay in the U.

  • S.

  • If your other visas are expired and actually work in the U.

  • S.

  • And travel outside of the U.

  • S.

  • And come back while you wait for that official green card.

  • And then the last stages, of course.

  • The adjustment of status soft try God, that E D card.

  • And quickly after that, two months after I got my notice to come Thio get my fingerprints of biometrics.

  • And then after that, the next stage is the actual interview.

  • Oh, my God.

  • I can't even tell you guys how scared I was before that actual interview.

  • So you go into the U.

  • S.

  • Consulate and you know, essentially the processes they just ask you a ll the questions that you already answered in your application.

  • But while I was sitting there in the waiting room and waited for the officer for the U.

  • S immigration officer to call me in for an interview, my heart was just in my throat.

  • It was pounding so hard because, you know, this is the moment.

  • This is like the final step off the green card process.

  • They don't tell you there whether you got it or not.

  • But it happens pretty quickly after it.

  • So that when she called me and I just started getting more and more inner nervous and she was she looked very, very strict.

  • But, you know, the funny thing was, when they went, she asked me my address and I was like, Ted, it'd a street like index Postal Code City state, like I just blurbed it out like memorized.

  • And she she went, Hey, I wonder if anyone actually says their address the way people tell me their address in this interview, because, you know, people have this prepared and seriously, that was kind of funny.

  • That was her way to kind of dissipate the atmosphere and made me make me more comfortable.

  • But essentially, the whole interview was like 15 minutes or so.

  • We just went over all the questions.

  • You were supposed to swear that you're only going to tell the truth.

  • And then that was kind of in.

  • After the interview, they tell you we're going to get back to you.

  • They never really tell you right away whether you got the green card or not.

  • Just a week later, a little less than a week I received the notice that my green card was approved and it's being printed out and sent in.

  • Just within a week after that interview, I got my card.

  • Let me show it to you.

  • Uh, okay, here's my photo.

  • See ya.

  • When I got it in in mail, it was just such an incredible moment.

  • I had a grin court celebration party with my friends because, you know, I have been wanting Thio stand the U.

  • S.

  • And get a green card and become a permanent residence for such a long time.

  • That was like my ultimate dream.

  • Essentially.

  • And it happened for me pretty quickly.

  • I got my green card just within about 2.5 years since moving to the US permanently and which is like pretty quick and young.

  • And now I don't have to worry about Visa's about immigration.

  • I just have my little corn and I don't have to, As I said, worry.

  • And it's been it's been just such a relief cause for such a long time.

  • I was stressed out for with my visa situation is gonna be in as an immigrant.

  • I can tell you that any time you go travel and you're in the customs coming back to the U.

  • S, it's always stressful cause you're always like Are they gonna let me back in?

  • But now that I have this little green piece of plastic, it's like, Oh, my God, welcome home in cast customs and it's just such a such a big difference.

  • I actually forgot to tell one funny story with respect to my card.

  • When I received it in Male the first time, it was incorrect on I kinda thought that that would be the case because the process just one so smoothly I kind of had a feeling that something's gonna go wrong.

  • When I received my card.

  • Everything was right.

  • My name was right.

  • But the gender they put mail by accident instead of female.

  • And I had to actually file for replacements and send my card back and waited for five more months to get a replacement.

  • But it wasn't a big deal because I was already a permanent residence, so it didn't really matter.

  • But that was just like a funny situation.

  • The ice cummings ready?
