Does anyone know how Salesforce helps during h1b transfer process? Got a rfe and I am wondering how Salesforce supports you in case your transfer gets denied.


H1B question - has anyone else here seen IW suddenly turn to VAC? Does anyone know why?


So I need some advice:

Some years ago, my Aunty (US citizen) filed a GC for my dad(her brother). However, they got into a conflict and haven’t spoken in the last couple of years.

Through her husband, we found out that the petition was approved but she did not tell him. Is it possible for him to still claim it even though he doesn’t have the case details ?


Deloitte fishes on H1B- if you’re working from a remote location (50 miles away from your home office), do you submit that jurisdiction on DTE? If yes, wouldn’t that need an amendment? If no, wouldn’t uncle D find out and be upset?


Has anyone travelled recently to India and got H1B stamping done through Dropbox appointment?


Does PwC reimburse the $500 fraud fee paid when applying for an L1 visa?


Do I need to fill out any immigration form etc if I’m changing my home address while on H1B? Work location stays the same - just shifting to a different apartment complex in the area.


My firm just started my first step in the PERM/GC process. But my bf (GC holder) and I plan to get married next year. How soon should I notify EY about changing my GC sponsoring through marriage? I don’t want to notify before I officially engaged


For those fishes who managed to get their green card after h1b, curious as to how long the actual process took for you (PERM -> I140 -> USCIS decision)? Trying to gauge if I should make plans and leave the US or wait it out




Anyone on H-1B/H-1B1 manage to do coaching/training as a second (part time) job? I know both jobs have to be in same industry for concurrent filing, wondering if anyone has success stories! TIA!! :)

Thinking of buying a house in India, can I apply for a house loan in US and pay for the property? Any personal experience or tax consultant recommendation to help with this?


My H1B 60 day timer to find a job is running out. I still have 2 years on my OPT left. Does that mean I get to stay for another 60 days after this 60days runs out? For that do I have to apply for an EAD? Should I contact my school? What am I supposed to do until I find a new job? Please help. I’m just 2 years into my career and very lost and scared right now.


In 4 days, I will be completing 60 days of my lay-off from Deloitte. But, I am not at all worried, and taking time to ensure I get on right team/opportunity, which takes my career ahead.

Why can I afford to to so? Coz, I am not on stupid H1B, and just became Canadian citizen 2 months before this pandemic started. Seems like all those 7 years of wait ( i used to call it jail term here due to limited opportunities) was totally worth it in terms of stability it brings.

Happy Canada Day!


H1- i40 question: I have 16months on my h1b(2nd). I am in the middle of my Perm application (recruitment stage). If I wait for the process to complete and then move companies they need to restart the Perm process. With only few months remaining at new company the new perm application will not complete before my h1 ends. Can the new company apply for h1b extension without the new perm process complete, will an approved perm from previous employee allow me to do so?

My fiancé is filing for his GC (has biometrics appointment mid Dec, I140 approved, I485 filed in Nov). We’re planning to get married in June- if he gets his GC before I can be added to his application then does anyone know how long before I get mine? I read somewhere that spouse can be added as dependent anytime before GC is issue to main applicant. TIA


How many days is it taking to receive H1B receipt notice? And how many days is it taking for approval in regular processing? Any recent experiences?
