People on H1, if you get promoted in your company and the location doesnt change, does that require an H1 ammendment?

Thank you. I was already performing at the next level so I guess it doesnt matter.


Okay then. 🤣



Unless your daily duties vary by more than 50% as a result of promotion, you don’t need visa amendment.


I think M1 meant, if your duties change officially. USCIS doesn’t know that you’re working at the next level. Your H1B job description must match what you’re doing ( on paper) . It may lead to specialty occupation mess around RFEs these days.

Your legal department should be the one who can give you exact answer. It’s their responsibility .


Yes that’s what I meant EY1. Thank you for clarifying.

Op- When I was promoted I was performing at next level too, and that’s expected. That’s not the deciding factor. but fortunately my previous role and current role have similar duties “officially”. That’s why my law team confirmed they did not have to file h1 amendment. Drop a note to them and get it clarify.

model 3 vs the model s? I drove both and actually like the handling of the 3 better. I live in a city so the 3 would be much easier to park and move around. Cargo space seems fine.

I recently interviewed with Natwest and I got confirmation that they wanted to offer a role. Salary negotiations were started. However, now I got an email from the hiring manager that hiring for my role has been paused due to the ongoing cost of living crisis.

After clearing debt, 6 mo emergency fund, maxing 401k contributions, what's next? Mega backdoor Roth IRAs seem a little overwhelming, maybe something like a HYSA or just a trading account?

Fellow Desi Fish,

SO filling out passport renewal form. Finished CKGS, however in the form at the Indian Passport site - instead of leaving "PREVIOUS/CURRENT DIPLOMATIC/OFFICIAL PASSPORT" SO filled in a previous regular passport info. (To SO's credit, the phrasing was odd to ask for a previous passport)

SO unable to log back into the Indian Gov Passport site. Is this a deal breaker or would they give this mistype a pass?
