My start date with EY is 1/17. Law firm initiated H1B transfer (PP) on 12/14 but as of now the petition hasn't been filed yet. Is it even realistic for the start date to be on the 17th at this point? I'm worried because I also wanted to give my current employer 2 weeks notice but with this situation I don't even think it's possible anymore.

I think best is to work with your EY immigration lawyer and don’t give notice until your H1B transfer is approved. I think companies understand and are ready to keep the start date flexible.

Usually attorneys take 2-3 weeks for petition preparation. Recently my H1 transfer was approved in 5 calendar days (including weekend) at Vermont center. I don't think you need to worry, your start date could be pushed by 1 week in case of any delays in receiving the approval (worst case scenario).

All the best!

For me it took 1 complete month to transfer then they send petition to me another 6-7 days. I talked to recruiter and she postpone joining date accordingly.

My visa was approved in 3 days (Vermont), so you don’t have to worry about it now. Everyone understand the visa situation so they will adjust the start dates

Change your start date. And put your notice only when the h1b is approved.

Same boat - Mine got approved in a week. Website shows Case was approved but haven’t received physical approval notice and EY Law team haven’t updated the same on the portal. Still wondering whether it’s feasible to join without physical copy of the approval notice? FYI - start date is 1/18 as 1/17 is a holiday for EY colleagues!

I resigned based on the approval status on USCIS portal. I think that should be fine as long as you have the receipt number to track.
Physical copy was received after 7-10 days of online approval

Next company will typically change the start date. Since they have to give some start date they usually select an arbitrary one and change it once the transfer it approved. I suggest not to resign unless you have a confirmation that your transfer is approved.

Also, my current employer Accenture is also saying the same to retain me. Can I believe Cognizant? Also, Canada onsite is best in which company - Accenture or Cognizant. Please suggest based on your experience.

Thanks in advance!
