You should renew passport before H1b gets filed. You will definitely not get 3 year term if passport has less than a year to go.

Completely agree with you. All ckgs offices are closed for passport processing so just waiting for ckgs to re-open

If your transfer does not get approved, you'd be unemployed, correct? What would the company you're hoping to join do to help you in that case ?

Hi, I will be talking to my HM this week. This is what I am worried about.

How significant is pay jump? How stable the business is ? And based on that are you willing to take such a big risk? Most big firms transfers you to Canada or Europe and bring you back but for smaller firms their mobility engine is not so strong.

Remember, If the transfer didn’t go thru or RFE’d, the new employer won’t be at risk, U would be. With a Month on Visa, u r risking an immediate deportation.

Thank you for you advice

Not work related but idk where to ask this. We’ve been invited to our first post Covid cookout. It’s at my husband’s former colleagues place so we don’t the hosts too well but we know there are not going to be any kids so mostly a grown up football party. What would bring to it? Because of the current scenario I’m skeptical of bringing my home cooked dip.

My H1B extension was denied in November 2019, following which I returned to India while my company prepared another application for me. In late February, my H1B application for the same job and position was approved and I was due to get my passport stamped but obv the consulates closed. My questions are: 1. Is anybody else in this exact same position? Can I get in touch with you? 2. Would this qualify as the continuing job exception for the visa suspension proclamation?

Do NOT claim you are "colorblind" in the workplace. 1. DE&I knowledge is now a core leadership competency. Colorblind claims will earn you the reputation of being DEI-ignorant at best & racist at worst. 2. Colorblindness within the context of workplace diversity is an obvious lie. You do NOT want to be painted as an intellectually dishonest leader. 3. Colorblind claims signal that you lack the leadership skills & vocabulary to have key conversations. Ask questions here, in this safe space.
