    Conditional Permanent Resident vs Permanent Resident

    Advertisements



    Hello....Just wondering if anyone has heard about programs denying interviews based on the fact that you are a conditional permanent resident vs a permanent resident. Both have the same entitlements and allow you to legally work in the US but I have heard some stories about programs denying interviews to people with the 'conditional status'. I have recently been married and have applied to become a conditional permanent resident, which is what I will be at the time I start residency in July 2008, but am considering applying as a permanent resident (no condition) anyways.

    Just wondering if anyone has been down this path or has any advice.

    Thanks

    I am conditional permanent resident and I applied this year but I couldn't fill up the application with "conditional permanent resident" so I don't think should be any problem. Anyway you will be conditional just for 2 years.

    Dahc I know you started residency 2 years ago. How did that situation play out? Did you write conditional PR or just PR and if you wrote conditional, were the rumors true or did u get interviewed?

    Hey docnew.
    yes i'm in residency. no issues at all. when u apply, just make it simple by listing permanent resident, because you never know if the person on the other side understands the difference. 90 days before your status expires, make sure u remember to file to remove conditions of permanent resident status..within 2 weeks u will get a letter from uscis stating ur status has been extended for 1 year pending the outcome of your application to remove the conditions...u take this letter to HR to show them ur status has been extended...so no worries at all - ur legit!

    Thanks a ton for the reply. My concern now is that it seems that the ERAS application is having more options to make it transparent. That is why the CPR status is added along with other options like Refugee, etc. Is it ok then to say it is PR, when CPR option is available? Secondly, they may ask for copy of green card which will have the expiry date mentioned along with date of issue.

    I would keep it simple by listing urself as a PR, which you are. yes when u go through orientation they will photocopy ur PR card....they will see the expiration date and remind you that when u file to remove the conditions, to bring in the letter from uscis stating that ur status has been extended for one year, pending outcome of your application. even if it expires, that letter you get from uscis after filing to remove the conditions, proves that ur still in status. dont overthink would be my advice to you. Hospitals are big places that employ tons of people, including tons of immigrants. they go through this process on a regular basis. the fact that ur a legal immigrant i.e. came through the front door is all they care about.

    Got your point and your view is a very important source of information since you are currently a resident. Can I send you queries while I am in the process of applying for the programs? It will be of great help to me. Thanks to you once again!
