All those who are leaving US because of shitty immigration issues, let’s connect and figure out stuff.

Leaving the US after 3 tries of H1B lottery. I’m on OPT STEM, what should I NOT forget before I leave the country? Thanks!!

My h-1b was valid until Jan 2021, but the when I filed for amendment it was truncated to March 2020. Filed for extension which got denied. Firm is saying I can either work or go on LOA. Any ideas?

Anybody here moved back to India from US recently? How has your experience been? Do you regret the move back or has it been worth it?

My H1b amendment for an LCA came back with a reduced validity. Anybody have this experience? What do I do? 😞

Been in US for the last 7 years. Currently in two minds on whether to stay here or move back to India. Every time I go back home for a vacation, it’s getting harder to come back to US (1/2)

What RFE did you receive and how long did it take to prepare a response?

Has anyone gone to a US Embassy in Europe to do the final “adjustment of status” process overseas for their green card? This is in place of doing it in the US where it will take up to 36 months.

Is there anyone who came to US for courses eligible for CPT and was successful in getting a job and staying through H1B process ? Will appreciate an opportunity to chat.

Is it common for a form to not let you see the RFE they are filing on your behalf?
