Is the H1B approval rate down this year? Have any big companies stopped petitioning? Did Trump’s executive order make the process more expensive for employers ?

Yes all down. More checks and delayed processing. Not required to notify you if not approved neither.

Extremely hard. For new hires, the lottery is the first battle, even if you win, you have to go through the RFE. I know someone that hasn’t received approval today, and OPT has expired so they have to leave firm now and rejoin later upon approval. Also extremely hard on existing h1b transfer. Even though the job market is really good. The cancellation of premium processing make transfer a 6-8 month process, and employers are extremely hesitate to go through this process.

Are you aware of any reading on it ?
