What is your h1 validity date & i94 date with current firm?


It’s valid for a couple more years

You are good to continue with your current firm if you have not resigned. No immigration process required.

Reason for denial?? Wage level?

It’s not denied yet

I’m in same bucket but h1 transfer went to RFE. Awaiting for approval

Keep us posted...

KPMG1 - hopefully it works out

@ KPMG1 what is the reason for RFE?

Desi Consulting fam, 2 H1B related questions, would really appreciate any help. Please see the second comment below:

Does anyone in the group have any of people who have moved from Non-US Deloitte to Deloitte US on L1A? I am a Deloitte UK employee who was earlier Deloitte US employee on H1B but had moved out due to not getting I140 on time. Now I have completed 1 year in Deloitte UK and have become eligible for L1A. Anyone sailed similar boat before?


Deloitte isn’t entertaining transferring from USI to US. Is it worth joining a sub with D, filing the GC and then come back to Deloitte US? Currently a SC with two years to go on H1B.

Heard second lottery results are coming out? Anyone heard from D immigration team? I know they are super slow

Sharing a positive vibe. My H1B extension was approved without any issues. BAL did a good job.


Did anyone get an update on their H1B registration from BAL? I got an email on March 11 saying that my account was opened on cobalt but nothing else since then!

Hi, I’ve completed 3 years as H1B and just received extension for the next 3 years. My employer will file prevailing wage with the DOL in the next 3 months in EB3. I have heard that some FAANG companies start filing GC within 3 months of joining. I’m already studying to switch jobs. How much time do I have to switch jobs so that there is adequate time left for GC application?


Can you change jobs and transfer H1Bs before you get the visa stamped on your passport?

Does anyone know how to obtain a “police check”/ certificate of clearance for immigration purposes from out of America? I used to live in NY and need to get it now but have no idea how from out of US.

Hi USI 🐟 First 3 years on my H1B visa are expiring in Sep this year. No one has reached out to me regarding extension filing. Does anyone know what the process is, whom shall I reach out to get this process started??


If you leave the US because of failed H1B attempt with a L1 visa, how hard is it to move companies under the latter? If you decide to leave your employer, what is the process like to keep the visa?

Aren’t we supposed to get an update on h1b lottery results by today ? Immigration page says week of 11/29


Anyone filed h1b in regular processing and changed to premium? If so, can you please help with the process and approvals required?

Hi In the present scenario, what's a better option for current students b/w two for job opportunities (considering visa sponsorship challenges) aspect: 1) study on f1 and then avail cpt/opt for job 2) study on h4, apply for h4 ead (assuming their spouse already has an approved i140) and look for jobs.

Good Morning. Here's my dilemma. I have an approved H1B application which got picked up in 2019-20 lot and approved in Jan 2020, before the world went into lockdown. The stamping process was initiated but it couldn't complete as the USCIS offices were shutdown die to the pandemic. I have watched patiently about all the regulations Trump Administration brought in to deny any entry to H1B applicants who weren't already working in the states or who were waiting to return.

How do you cope with being laid off? I’ve changed jobs many times, even moved to the other side of the world without job and work visa (it all worked out fine) and after I left my previous job I took 6 months off to travel before I started this job at a network agency I loved. I always had confidence. This is the first time I feel so heartbroken and almost grieving about it, and even the quality of work sucked (but the network and people are good). How do I get over this? I want myself back!


Meeting with a recruiter at one of the FAANG companies. I won’t be able to move jobs because of H1b /GC at least for the next year. Any idea if I should start off with that or should I just try to understand the work that they have been doing?


Has anyone got their green card in the last year? How long did the process took?
