Hello Deloitte H-1B fishes, Traveling abroad and don’t have a Deloitte phone. I was told I can access webmail and DTE on a personal device. Is there anything else to be concerned about?

I’m also in the middle of a PERM application so not sure if BAL would need other documents from Deloitte’s system while on PTO.
