Tried negotiating premium processing?

Exactly

If they aren’t willing to wait that sounds like a “them” problem. That seems very short-sighted for them not to understand your situation

Agreed, this is a red flag for me. Its been 3 months, no way that a FAANG cant wait 3 months, and they knew that Visa processing would take time, so something smells fishy.

In the same boat

Damn.

Why isn’t premium processing an option? Even with rfe, you should hear quick rt.

Employer is taking 4-6 weeks for RFE petition filings.

Didn’t you join on receipt? You should keep working while they resolve RFE?

Not sure if I could join in RFE now

I honestly believe you should join. Worst case they will be able to send you to Canada or Europe till your visa issue is sorted out - Clarify that beforehand. If ref is for speciality occupation, their %approval is higher. If this is you dream job to be in FANG, take it. You won’t regret it!

Anyone here who can refer me to Apple or Facebook ?
