Just became a US Permanent Resident

Postby Paphitis » Fri Mar 20, 2020 3:17 am

Today has been a very happy day for me and my family.

I just became a US Permanent Resident today with a fixed address in the USA under sponsorship by a US Firm. Have also been consulting a lawyer and am able to convert my residency to an immigrant Green card VISA and will start doing that soon with supporting documentation from my sponsor.

I completely love the USA and the American people. I always considered them to be the best people in the world and I don't say that lightly.

Can't wait for Coronavirus to be controlled and subside.

I currently feel like a very lucky man. Out of 16 guys this firm has extended offers of employment to, 12 offers have been revoked to 12 guys and 4 have been placed on temporary hold. I am 1 of the 4 fortunate guys.

.....and if Paphitis and his family eventually want to become US citizens, then the Naturalization ceremony is another experience altogether, in a large auditorium with 500+ fellow candidates all being sworn in at the same time, with thousands more as family members and friends attending the ceremony to witness the event.

It was a lot of fun and a moment of being very proud was my experience when I had mine. Still gives me goosebumps. :D

Good luck Paphitis and family.

Do you think we’ll get an invite? Given how he’s let me down on the Brisbane thing. :(

What happened in Brisbane or did not happen as the case may be?

The earliest he can have his Naturalization ceremony would be 6 years away, so if you are nice to him, why not! :D

Just a joke. I was threatening to go there on my recent Aus trip, or some time in the future. It’s a lovely place actually.

At the moment I’m sorta working to a 6 week timescale. 6 years would be nice. 8)

Me let you down? :lol:

You know you are free to contact me and make yourself feel at home at my place whenever you like in Brisbane, Adelaide or New York/Chicago (because I still don't know where I will end up at the end of it). Same goes for kikapu.

Or do you guys need a formal invitation? :lol:

Could we stitch that together. Make it a sort of Paphitis “tour”. 8) :lol:

Yes it's a long journey but it's possible. the only reason why my sponsor didn't apply for immigrant is because it's a lengthy process and a lot more involved but now that I have the non-immigrant Visa, going over to immigrant Green card is a much simpler process but you still got to wait for 5 years for the citizenship. Plus the extra year by the time your are sworn in.

The way things are going I might be touring my dad's village in Paphos to escape Coronavirus.

I won't be escaping Corona Beers though. 8)
