3/6 months

Which city? I don’t see a lot of industry companies taking in H1Bs

Agree with 3/6 months. Almost always 3 months

It’s not on hold..it’s only on hold for CAP FY19. If you are transferring and have valid visa then u r not in CAP FY19. I just transferred mine in August in premium. Also the immigration team does check the eligibility so actually it depends on employer. Even with premium processing my entire process took 3 months not because of USCIS but bcz of stupid immigration teams.

EY1 - The current hold expanded to h1b transfers for new employer petition. Only extensions aren't affected.

EY2 - I am very much confused with all the new regulations. Can extensions still be filled under premium?

Ey3 - yes. Only new job transfers and cap subject petitions are suspended from pp until Feb 2019.

So moving to a new firm is really a pain as they wouldn’t want to risk hiring you and waiting for : months. My life is doomed.

Op true. Only thing we can do is start job search in oct/nov (not the best time of hiring) and expect h1 to be filed around Jan with a requirement to get updated to pp on Feb.

This position i found is a perfect fit, 5 minutes from home and don’t want to lose it. Any ideas to convince employers to wait for 3 months?
