Did anyone here get their O1 stamped in their passport lately? If so, in which country?


Open the borders already! I need to see my family 😭😭😭


I am on OPT Stem currently in my last year. What are my next options for visa if my company doesn’t want to sponsor me for the H1B?

Thinking about getting an o1 visa that allows me to freelance. Should I inform my agency before or only after I get it?

Anyone else on this bowl TERRIFIED about lay-offs in a time where most countries have their borders close so we cant even go home?


need access to the Cannes Lions archive to get evidence of a win for my green card application but don’t have a subscription. Anyone kind enough to lend me a login so I can take a screenshot? Thanks!

Does anyone have any suggestion on how to get 40 publications for an O1 visa? I know about sites like We Love Ad but are there any other out there that we can get self published quickly?

Does anyone know how to obtain a “police check”/ certificate of clearance for immigration purposes from out of America? I used to live in NY and need to get it now but have no idea how from out of US.

Has anyone got their green card in the last year? How long did the process took?


H1B1 for NY - visa verbally approved, only to receive an email an hour later asking for my history from the last 15 years. Been put on processing for 6 weeks now with no end in sight - anyone else?

I'm on a h1b1 visa and really want to get a green card. Any advice?
