Switching to self sponsored O1. As I interviewed, no one wanted to change my visa over so this is easier and reduces the pressure of potentially being laid off

So from what I know you can do that because you are technically opening a company and hiring yourself on a visa. So if an agency want to hire you full time they either hire your llc as a consultant or they can sponsor a second O1 and you keep yours. I also heard of O1 agents that can sponsor your O1 and they keep a fee of the work you were commissioned to do . However I think this is more common for artists, illustrators etc. and not sure exactly how this work.

I was having hard time 2 years ago I can only imagine that is worse now. My recommendation is doing a personal O1 and becoming a freelancer. Or a eb1 which is the one I’m doing now. Both you can self sponsor.

Definitely not easy now! Agree those options are more future proof than having one like a H1b

Waiting, waiting and waiting.

Chase Freedom Unlimited vs Chase Freedom Flex. Thoughts on which to get? It seems the only different is the Unlimited gives you 1.5% on all “other” purchases, and the Flex gives you only 1% on “other” but a 5% category you choose each quarter. Both have the same intro offers, including 5% groceries for the first year, and 5% travel thru Chase, 3% restaurants and drug stores forever. Thinking the Flex is the better pick out of the two but maybe im missing something

Any one in this forum received a cancellation mail for B1/B2 visa appointments for late Jan/Feb 2022.

The mail seemed pretty generic but not sure whether the consulate will honor the appointment.
