Hi,

My husband is having L1A visa through company X.
Howmany days/moths/years will it take for us to get GREENCARD if we apply in MAY2008.

I understood no LC is required for L1A visa holders Greencard processing.

Thanks in advance.

Yours will be EB1C. You can expect to get GC in 1-2 years.

If i-140 premium processing comes back, then typically within an year. (know of 2 people who got done within 8 months... EB1-India). Right now the I-140 is going to take the longest time..

Is there any way H1B can qualify as a EB1C?

Sure. You need to work outside the US for the sponsoring company in a managerial capacity for 1 out of the 3 years prior to filing the I140. So if you are on a H1B and are a manager, you can sign up for an assignment abroad to fulfill that requirement.
