Which religion?

smartfunny

is that relevant?

There are no religions that have come out against the vaccine, so I was just curious if there is a new religion that has condemned it and told its followers not to get vaccinated?

Yes, there is. To my knowledge, there are three bases for not getting it and it is one of the forms you may see when filing waiver: medical reasons, religious belief, moral belief.

Has anyone on H1b switched to the new employer on receipt, instead of on approval? My new employer just stated my process. While will be through premium process, I'd still have to wait for around 6 to 8 weeks to start if I am transferring on approval, while only 3 weeks if starting with receipt notice... I am so done with my current job so was wondering if sounds not too dangerous to move before approval?

I am on H1-b visa with an approved i-140. I am planning to apply for an office transfer which I think will need to have my PERM re-done. Does this mean that if I change my office, my existing approved i-140 gets voided? So essentially if I wish to leave the firm after transferring to another office will my “current” approved i140 and priority date still be valid? Or do I have to wait until my transferred office PERM process is completed? Apologies for the long post
