Hi! Im on my H1B visa currently and planning to move from Atlanta to Seattle next month. Just stressing out in terms of items I need to take care of as I plan the move. I don’t know if I’m required to change my home office location or if any amendment needs to be filed. Really appreciate any help or advice from anyone who has done this. Thanks in advance.
I have an I-94 attached to I/797 notice with expiration date of 2/1/2023. Do you think I’d be able to submit a I-593 COS to b2 based on this I-94 date before leaving work? I want to have 6 months before leaving US for good. My concern is that the I-94 expires right with the h1b on the last day of work. I’d be quitting voluntarily so I don’t think the 60 days grace period applies. Just wanted to hear your general thoughts before reaching out to immigration lawyer.
Planning on travelling to India during the month of December. I understand that NIE would no longer be required - however are there any other documents that I should prepare for? Fully vaccinated in the US & have my work VISA stamped on my passport.
My firm is about to apply for my i140 and my wife who's on an h1b just found out that her company won't be able to file for her gc. Can I file for her h4 ead along with my i485 application?
Received an offer to join Facebook as a data scientist. Given the litigation (that just ended) with the PERM issues, is it worth accepting the offer? In 5th year of H1B, approved PERM and i140 with current employer. Priority date in March 2020. Can anyone share any insight/advice?
Got my i140 approved last month and my initial 6 years of H1b will come to end in a year . I want to change job . So, want hear from you guys on what are few things that I should be aware of and did anyone change job post i140 ( less than 6 months )
Hello H1B community - I apologize if someone has asked this question already, I tried looking but didn’t find much on the topic. What should I do if my status is expiring in the next month? My OPT is expiring in June and I was approved for H1B but via consular notification, not change of status. I was supposed to go to India in April for stamping but obviously couldn’t given the circumstances. Is anyone in the same boat / have any advice?

I have a H1B visa (valid until Sep 2022) but I recently quit my job in the US and moved to Canada on PR. I’m currently planning a trip with a flight stop in NYC. Do I need to apply for a C visa to transit through the US or am I good since my H1 visa is valid?

Hey Desi fam. So I was going to apply for visa for my son (US Citizen) and what the notice on the site says is that eVisa or Regular visa will be allowed from Nov 15th but it would only have a limit of 30 days !? What if we have to stay back for more than 30 days for whatever reason? Is this the case with emergency visas as well and Does anyone have experience with extending either in the past?

My H1-b transfer has been initiated via premium processing. I won't quit until I get my approval, but I'd like to give my current employer some notice. Am I allowed to continue working for my current employer after approval (during notice period), or is that considered an immigration violation?
I changed from opt to H1B last year in October. Do I need to update any portal or do anything?

Can I just not disclose current strategy -- and go with "make me best offer". Hard to keep up with what salary ranges I tell various recruiters -- because I'm adding like 30-40%

Is saving over rated? Starting to think my general strategy/approach to savings. I recently posed a question about why people don’t retire earlier after seeing maxing out your tax accounts (~30K with match) gives you ~70k in today’s dollars (not 70k in 2060 dollars). I was a bit hyper obsessed about saving that extra 2-3k a year and saying no to that extra beach trip or mountain weekend or even a round of golf. Now I think I should be saying yes, what do you guys think? Just curious for thisconv
