Hello fishes, Do we need to update our address on H-1B approved petition and PERM (still in initial PWD stages) if changing our resedential address within a 5 mile radius? Would be great if any immigration lawyers could weigh in.
In case H1B gets denied (I hope that doesn’t happen), what countries have you considered moving to besides Canada. Indian national and pending transfer to MBB if that helps.
While switching companies, can we get the H1B visa transfer approved and still work for the old company for 2 months?

Anyone has experience working for Axtria? I have just spoken to the HR who sent me an immigration question which is extensive including asking for my pay stubs and W2’s , certificates etc even before the start of the process. I feel that this is quite invasive before the first round
Anyone has recent experience about visa processing timelines, particularly H1b from interview to passport in hand?
Hello fellow H1B folks! Question on i797 approval letter. Got my visa approved from company A. I need to delay my start date at company A. If company A does not withdraw its application, how long do I have on the newly approved petition to do the switch? Long story short when does the new petition cease being valid? I still have an existing valid visa / i797 for my current company.
Is there any consulting companies in the US that sponsor new hires (for example data science consultants) for a H1 visa or GC?
Fellow fishes, has anyone recently gone to India for H1B stamping and used Dropbox service. If you could please shed some light on the processing times and overall process that would be very helpful!
Hi folks, I was on H1B visa and moved out of US 2 years back. I should have 3 years left on my H1B visa. I am planning to go back to the US now. Do I need to apply for H1B lottery? Or can I reuse my previous H1B. FYI - I work for a different employer now.

Signed up for a job that’s 80% travel. Realistically- how much is it now? (Covid- post covid)
HR professionals- are you requiring a negative test before any employees return to work after COVID? Some had very mild symptoms and one was asymptomatic. I’ve read not to push for a Dr.’s note and some people can still be positive yet not contagious. Right now I’m following the cdc guidelines of 10 days from first symptom, fever free for 24 hrs and improvement of symptoms.

I have a return offer following my internship for an MBB in my home country in SE Asia. However, I want to stay in the US after my MBA (salary, relationship, network etc.). Would it make sense to get offers from T2s to put pressure on my company to enable a transfer? If so, how would I best play this card? I would likely pick any US firm over any MBB at home, given the financial considerations.

How difficult (relatively) is it to recruit for an MBB London office from a T15 US MBA program compared to a US office? I know it's not done often, but is that mainly due to the salary difference?
Do you think differently about the way you look, or are you more aware how your face actually looks, since you’re seeing yourself on zoom so much? And are you like me, so self-conscious that you only look at yourself the whole zoom call?
To those in Palo Alto, what's the reputation amongst the BigLaw firms there? Thoughts on Wilson Sonsini or Paul Hastings? Interviewing at the moment and trying to get a sense of the on the ground experience and reputation of the various shops.
