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)

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?

If you leave the US because of failed H1B attempt with a L1 visa, how hard is it to move companies under the latter? If you decide to leave your employer, what is the process like to keep the visa?

I spoke to HR about green card sponsorship. Requirements are at least a level 9 aligned to something that is in demand (Sap/oracle) Any experience in sponsorship without alignment to SAP/Oracle?

Anyone experienced getting I-485 approval before I-140? What happens to interview and if it’s something I need to worry? Applying EB1C if matters
