thanks for all the info....very very very useful for us indeed! perhaps we really shld explore the option of getting a greencard if it's really so fast like what you've mentioned (we've been here for slightly over a year already).

right now, his employer is working on renewing his visa. they didn't mention that it could be easy for him to obtain a greencard. THEY = employer/colleagues (& indeed some of them are indian nationals). maybe they just want to avoid the hassles/costs for now....as renewing visa is prob easier and free for them.

that's actually quite alot of money to pay for a greencard based on your upper $ limit!!! is there an expiry too on the greencard?

yah...SPR is SGP PR.
renewing VISA?
H1B-1 VISA cannot apply for greencard, this VISA is for Singaporean can renew indefinately
only H1B is eligible and each VISA is for 3yrs, only can be renewed once.

renewal is cheaper, fees cost ~US$2.5k legal feels ~US$1-5K.

there is expiration on greencard, last for 5yrs and U have the option to become citizen. if u don't want to just keep it
