I have an H1b which I received in 2019 and was valid till august2021, due to covid I wasn't able to travel and then I switched to another firm last year in November. If I get visa transfer, will it provide me a validity back as I haven't used any on site time on that visa.

Good evening all,
With my partner we are considering making a move to the countryside of Switzerland, with a gorgeous RE project offering incredible views on immaculate mountains and lake. However, it is far away, and will require 1h+ train/car commute vs. 10 min biking right now. We are scared it will bite us back at some point, although COVID helped w/ remote working being a new norm. The project will be done 2024, so I hope to have a more relax job by then. Any similar experience to share?

Experiencing some - “when it rains, it pours” moments yet again. This year has been something else from finances to immigration and personal to professional life issues. I felt like every setback I’ve had, I thought that it was my rock bottom and there was only the way up from there. This time around - finding the light seems to be problematic. Have you guys been reading/practicing anything that makes it easier to fall down and get back up after a series of falls?
