MBB folks on H1-B who recently switched to FAANG - did you run into any issues with visa transfer? My transfer has been filed and I’m a bit nervous about USCIS’ perception of consultants and the current sentiment around H1-B visas.

It’s not a transfer. Your new company is applying for a fresh H1B. It doesn’t matter which company applies for it, USCIS don’t ‘perceive’ any specific profession unless the company is shady or the candidate is shady. You will be perfectly fine

Consultant1: It’s a new H1B process which has CAP exemption (in other words no lottery)

Hello H1B community - I apologize if someone has asked this question already, I tried looking but didn’t find much on the topic. What should I do if my status is expiring in the next month? My OPT is expiring in June and I was approved for H1B but via consular notification, not change of status. I was supposed to go to India in April for stamping but obviously couldn’t given the circumstances. Is anyone in the same boat / have any advice?
