Topic: Bahamas visa requirement for Cruise travel

Got back from Cruise yesterday. Went without Bahamian visa and NO PROBLEM at all. No one checks Bahamian Visa when you land in Nassau. All you need is your Sail Card (provided by Cruise line) and a photo id. When you return back, the immigration process similar to airport process. Make sure you have your documents to get back-in USA.

Great! Thanks ioiio.

One last question. When did you take your cruise? Was it recently?

Topic: Bahamas visa requirement for Cruise travel

Hi ioiio,

I'm in similar situation. I'm going to take the Cruise to Bahamas from Jacksonville, FL this December end. My wife and I do have F1 and H1 stamping respectively. Got couple of questions for you:

1) Did you and your wife get Bahamian visa before you cruised?

2) When you say "they don't check for bahamian visa" do you refer to Cruise company or Bahamian goverment officials?

3) Did you happen to visit Nassau during your cruise? If yes, so were there any Bahamas Immigration official checking your passport at the port of entry?

4) Did cruiseline checked for Bahamian visa while you were boarding the cruise?

Thanks in advance.

Topic: ******Urgent Help Required***********

See there are two variations here:

1) By law you have right of "at will employment" in this country. No one can stop you from joining or leaving an employer. It's your will which is above all.

2) Technically, if you have signed a contract with your desi employer, they can sue you. But for them there is not enough to gain out of it. Attorney's fee, hassles, time, energy, etc. is not worth for them to get into the legal procedures with the employee.

I left my desi employer and joined FT with the client. My desi employer threatened to sue me but never did anything. I'd say, if you are getting good offer, just go for it and rest everything can be tackled (if your ex-employer sues you).

Hope this helps.

Cheers!

Topic: ******Urgent Help Required***********

Merakyahoga,

Agreed. At that time, I was in catch 22 situation. My labor just got approved (after 1.5 years because of audit) and client offered me FT position and was not ready to wait because my 18 months of contract was coming to an end. Client policy is that any contractor can't work for more than 18 months - mostly all Financial companies have similar rule. It was take it or leave it situation. For me FT position was more important than loosing priority date.

Desi employer didn't help me in filing I140 after I left him. Anyways, I don't regret at all. My new employer has filed Labor - so all set from new priority date standpoint. At the most - I will get my GC 2 or 3 years late, which I don't mind.

Cheers!

I started FT with client. Then my ex-desi employer threatened to sue me. But he never did anything. I believe there is cost-benefit advantage with us. It would have been too costly for him to get anything out of it.

I'd say - go ahead and take FT opportunity. Good luck!

Topic: Move to USA after becoming Canada Citizen

Thanks Rajuneela. I'm more interested to discuss the Business/Investor Visa in USA. With EB5 visa you can get a GC right away, if you invest $1M or $500k, as I do "remember" that it takes ages to get GC and then Citizenship in USA (as I am going through that pain right now).

If you know any such visa options (eg: E1, E2, EB5) or have some thing to discuss around the same topic, please feel free to jump on this thread and lay down your thoughts. If you know someone who have done it successfully, please share their story/strategies/experience.

Thanks

Hi Guys,

I've sent 2 passports (me and my wife) to Ottawa CIC office 5 weeks back. Any idea on what their turn around time is? I heard it's between 6-8 weeks. If anyone had experience with Ottawa please share.

Thanks!

Topic: Got Successful H1B stamping from Toronto Consulate

Congratulations!

1) Can you please explain more about 'before that I did see that on my DS 160 Confirmation, It was written PIMS Okay.'?

You get DS 160 Confirmation when you schedule the visa interview appointment - correct? If yes then before going to the visa interview you must have read that PIMS is Okay.

2) It takes them 2 business days to issue the issue and give back the passport?

3) Did you get any visa for Canada as you stayed there for 6-7 days? If yes which visa?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Vanvat!

2 reasons why I told my desi employer:

1) My Labor got approved last month and employer about to file i140. So far I've good professional relationships with them - so want to continue the same and hope from them to file my i140 (even after i move to end client) so that I can retain my priority date.

2) So that my employer doesn't give me much trouble with experience letters. I will need it while my new employer files i140

I agree with each and every word you mentioned above.

I'm not taking this thing lightly, henceforth, will be consulting an attorney on this. Let's see what the attorney says.

Thanks for your words though! :)
