Guys, just got the notification my I-140 has been approved. How much longer to expect the AOS application and receiving the GC? Applied on L1-A visa.
This is a long shot but wondering if anyone has experienced this. I just changed to H1B status last Oct and my bank mailed me recently after tax filing deadline (I have filed tax in time using H&R block) asking me to fill out W9 if I am a resident alien / another form if I am not. This has never happened in previous years. Does it mean I missed a form using H&R block or is it related to the status change…?
Polling time: Has anyone recently got Administrative Processsing when trying to renew your H1B visa? If so, how long did it take to get it cleared? Try to assess if it is worth the risk to renew.
My H1B transfer to a new company got approved. But now deciding to stay with current company. Would there be any issues?
Hi folks, I was on H1B visa and moved out of US 2 years back. I should have 3 years left on my H1B visa. I am planning to go back to the US now. Do I need to apply for H1B lottery? Or can I reuse my previous H1B. FYI - I work for a different employer now.
Has anyone here started a non-profit org/ been a board member of one, in USA on H1B? Pls DM w/ your suggestions including immigration attorneys I should talk to. Really want to setup one for a philanthropic cause but google searches call it out as unlikely.
Anyone has experience working for Axtria? I have just spoken to the HR who sent me an immigration question which is extensive including asking for my pay stubs and W2’s , certificates etc even before the start of the process. I feel that this is quite invasive before the first round
My spouse’s I94 expires this week. We have filed for her visa extension in April’21. Does she have to leave the country or are we good?
Desi fam, did any of you take 24 karat gold coins to India from US? Like 1/2 oz or 1/4 oz. Did you have to pay taxes at immigration in India ? How much if yes ?
For those, who are immigrants, what made you stay in New York? Would be especially interested to hear from those who didn’t come for economical reasons. I am told the excitement about the city wears off 😅 I am European, just came 2 years ago and am still loving it, but also start to wonder if staying in a job I don’t like it’s all worth it (I am on L1 visa, so no way to find a new job). Life in Europe isn’t too bad either.
I am H1B and I’ve started my GC process. my husband is also on H1B but won’t get his GC sponsored until his next job. What happens if he has started the GC process but by then his H1B had run out? Can he still work while it’s pending with an application for EAD? Can he work as H4 under my H1B till I get my GC issued?
While switching companies, can we get the H1B visa transfer approved and still work for the old company for 2 months?
Sharing positive updates. Hope this can be motivational for others who are in the situation or planning for a move. H1B Transfer approved in 2wks. Normal processing, not premium Vermont serv center.
Hello fishes, Do we need to update our address on H-1B approved petition and PERM (still in initial PWD stages) if changing our resedential address within a 5 mile radius? Would be great if any immigration lawyers could weigh in.
H1b extension was filed 2 weeks back and now I see this when I check the status. What’s next?
Quick question. If you have an approved I-140, and want to switch jobs, does the new employer need to restart the green card application for you? How does this work? Thank you!
Thinking about transferring from EY US to EY London. I'm a staff 1 and unfortunately didn't win the visa lottery. Any thoughts of how hard it is to transfer?
Received a denial on my H1B RFE (not extension); PwC law says they did not receive a reason for the denial; is this possible? I have only 1 more attempt at the H1B - would it help for me to move?

What’s a typical salary for an acd in philly?
I have a return offer following my internship for an MBB in my home country in SE Asia. However, I want to stay in the US after my MBA (salary, relationship, network etc.). Would it make sense to get offers from T2s to put pressure on my company to enable a transfer? If so, how would I best play this card? I would likely pick any US firm over any MBB at home, given the financial considerations.
