I went. Needed a PCR to board the plane. Nobody in Heathrow ever checked. I was able to get one at the airport before leaving. Final destination didn’t matter, btw.

Even if transferring you still go through immigration to get from the arrivals to the departures side of the terminal. You don’t go through customs control but you still go through passport control. I don’t know where they check for test status though. Check their site: https://www.heathrow.com/customer-support/faq/coronavirus-covid-19

Depends on where you are going. Look up there requirements for travel from Heathrow. Good luck trying to find a straight answer. I’m going to IST and their govt website says you good if vaccinated and can show proof but the us turkey embassy page says you need PCR. AA said to look at Sherpa and i can’t figure it out from there because it looks like it’s saying both are acceptable

Yes that was my experience. Heathrow is a shitshow right now but absolutely 100% need a PCR test or you can’t bore your plane

I am almost 2 years into my H1B. They haven’t started my I140 but when I joined told me that I would be eligible in a year of which I am coming up on in this Oct. I got a new offer today but they told me that they would apply I140 after a year from when I join. The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?

Thinking outside the box: need H1B renewal stamping, eligible for Dropbox in my home country. However, going there is still risky in case of a 221g and consulates closed.

Once the stamping is done, I can travel to home country (after they courier my passport back) Is this possible or am I going crazy?
