No she won’t. The h1 has to be reactivated. I did the same, stayed in the us on B2, and the new employee reactivated my h-1b. They used premium processing. Stamping can be done later in a better climate.


Thanks for sharing! Could you also share about your process? When did you apply, how long was it pending until it got approved, and is it just an approval notice received? I wonder if that’s enough to get a B2 stamp if you decide not to be on H1B anymore and would like to leave the US and enter again.

FYI, I got the stamp six months after joining the new firm, in London.

My mom’s sister died due to Covid and my mom has been depressed since then. She started to see a grief counselor but now the counselor also has Covid. The doctors she had been seeing have Covid too. My mom had to get tested and it was negative but she is so depressed that she has given up on life.

Her mental health is exacerbating her physical health issues and has resulted in significant..

I believe people should get vaccinated when they can and if they are able to. I also think it’s wrong for governments to mandate vaccination. Doing so severely infringes on individual freedom and sets a bad precedent for the future.


Does anyone feel judged by their coworkers for going on vacation?


Not to start a political debate… I am not anti vaccine but have not wanted to get the COVID vaccine. I think I will be getting the vaccine tomorrow. Anyone else feel conflicted who originally really did not want to get it, but was kind of feeling forced to get it?


I see many people struggling with mental health here... it boggles my mind that people are putting work before their own well being/time. Read the comments for my suggestions on how to have balance..

Wedding of 100-150 people, mostly indoors with guests asked to wear masks when not eating/drinking. I’m leaning toward no for obvious COVID concerns (No known health issues, early 20s male) but these are childhood friends. Don’t know what I want/need to hear from this posting but felt maybe non-biased, older folk could offer advice.


tbh - as many issues as this country has (e.g., social, medical, political, health, wealth inequality)...im just hitting 30, bought my mom a house in the SF Bay Area (400k+ mortgage :/ !), and hit $1M+ this year. The key context being that I WAS RAISED IN A TRAILER PARK. There is no competition for the opportunity, fortune, and luck we can be blessed with in the US (despite the terrible times we are in...)

Am I the only one who feels all these people claiming to stand with Simone Biles is questionable? Mental health matters but if your team lead peaced out on you in the middle of a deadline, new business pitch, campaign launch, etc. you’d be singing a different tune. If Brady peaced out in the Super Bowl, would we sympathize? If Bron peaced out during the NBA finals, would we sympathize? The answer is likely no.
