L1A visa question: I'm working at MBB and moved to Canada due to Visa issues. Now, my Immigration team is asking me to work on ONLY Canadian client projects so that I'm eligible for L1. Are you aware of any such eligibility criteria for L1A? I know so many people from Big 4 who go to India offices and continue to work on US clients, and then get L1 visa.

Nope doesn't matter who your client is ! I'm moving on L1A from Canada to US and all I worked in last 2years are us and global clients

I think the key on getting L1 visa is about being on a non-US payroll for at least 1 year AND having spent more than 365 days outside the US, i.e., any day you spend in the US during this time will count against the clock. Not sure how this works now with WFH/remote work, but it should be fine so long as you're on Canadian payroll and working from Canada, not traveling to the states. Check again with the immigration team to understand how, if at all, working on a US client remotely from Canada would impact your eligibility.

Clients doesn’t matter

Does anyone knows if Deloitte can file H1B before the starting date? I got hired around October 2021 and official starting date might around summer/fall 2022.

Before I reach out to HR, just wanna know if anyone has similar situation!

Sometimes travel is not easy like it should be. I had a $1200 credit (b class flight from Paris to NY) from American Airlines that I was told was good for any trip.

Fine, but then after another hour on hold, I hear that it can only be redeemed in person at a ticket counter in Paris. I live in NY. Was never told of these stipulations before. Never again AA
