Question
I am a bachelor degree holder. I am working for the current employer for almost five years. And this is my first Job.
Can I use EB2 for perm application once I reached fifth year working here?
what is the quaota for Malaysian in EB3 category? Thanks

Answer
Francis,
Experience gained from the employer who is also the petitioner is discounted unless the jobs were substantially different. I would advise you to file your PERM application either in EB-2 or EB-3 ASAP. For Malaysia the priority date is currently 01JAN05.

Sincerely,
