PSA: If you worked for Integra Solutions or one of the other fraudulent OPT training companies, you should consult an immigration attorney immediately and whatever you do DO NOT travel. I’ve had 3 employees who had their visas revoked and deported when attempting to enter the country in the past month.

And also if you are in the process of filing an H1B transfer or change of status you should let your employer know. I recently filed a COS where it was denied but the FN’s F1 was revoked and he was found to be immediately out of status forcing us to terminate him.

What exactly is an OPT training company/why is it fraudulent? Never heard of Integra Solutions and just curious

Hi Everyone,

Need some inputs before making an important decision.
I have offer from Cognizant and they are promising that next quarter they will initiate my Canada visa. They are giving assurance when I spoke to them over call. 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!

Hi Fishes, I got a call from a consultancy (Avigna AB) about an on site opportunity in Sweden. In the initial discussion, they mentioned that that the visa processing shall take 2-3 months, during which I'll be paid Indian salary. Their upper limit for Indian salary is my current salary, although they offered to give a max of 15% on my current. The salary range for this role, in Swedish króna is between 45-50k.
Im a little confused on whether to move forward or not. Any advise?
