I'd say your best chance for relief wrt strict immigration issues starts at about 1PM EST January 20, 2020 at the earliest. If not, 2024.

Stay strong, and good luck buddy.

Why can't you get out?

Can’t transfer visa to another employer as visa extension is pending since three months, likely to take another 4-5 months. Only option is to move out is the country. Waiting so my current will file for residency and things might work out

Nothing is going to happen in 2020. Did you mean 2021?

Yes I was in this position last year. All, I can say is stay strong and do the best you can, it will be worth it in the end

Hi
In the present scenario, what's a better option for current students b/w two for job opportunities (considering visa sponsorship challenges) aspect: 1) study on f1 and then avail cpt/opt for job
2) study on h4, apply for h4 ead (assuming their spouse already has an approved i140) and look for jobs.

Holding H1 stamped visa but haven't travelled yet and expired. Am I eligible for Cap-Exempt from India ?

How long it takes for cap-exempt to be processed these days in normal processing ?

PSA: If you worked for Integra Solutions or one of the other fraudulent OPT training companies, you should consult an immigration attorney immediately and whatever you do DO NOT travel. I’ve had 3 employees who had their visas revoked and deported when attempting to enter the country in the past month.

Has someone here moved recently to UK from India? Have some questions on moving around rent, luggage, visa etc. TIA.

I had started a startup which failed eventually. I realized through the process that being a technical founder gives you a huge leg up. I am currently working in analytics but I see myself eventually starting something again after my visa situation in fixed. In the meantime I am trying to gain the skills that would make me a good startup founder. Do you think getting a master's in computer science is worth it? I do know some coding for data analysis, but not for software building.
