Awaiting the processing of visa extension which has been filed since 2 months. Firm has approved upgrading to premium but also stated that there is higher chance of RFE if upgraded. Is that true?
Hi guys, what is the average wait time currently for UK visa issuance from the day of vfs appointment?
I had my scheduled appointment today and was told there is long wait time by a personnel. However my COS PwC told it is doable for a person joining on September 1st week. Would like to know how much accurate their words are .
I am an SC on L1 B individual visa (valid until 2021 without any extension). Up for manager this year, will know in 2 weeks. Transferring to USA firm this year. What is the process, timeline for GC?
Anybody knows the changes made to the promotion cycle. Earlier it was end of Q1, Q2 and Q3. What is the cycle now? When does the next cycle begins?
McK fish: can people on H1B use the second home policy for LFO? No issues with LCAs? Starting at the firm soon and SO just got offered a job on opposite coast. I assume switching offices will not be an option for the first year so this might be a good compromise.
Worked super hard in the US for 11 years, finally was about to get green card, I got laid off. What has my life become? I can’t feel more like a failure. If I can’t find a job that sponsors work visa for me in 3 months, the past decade would be the proof of my yet another horrible investment. Damn, universe, what are you trying to teach me?! Stop chasing unrealistic goal that’s outside of our control?
I am current interviewing with Visa and they started the background check before the final round. The recruiter called me saying she’s already have an offer ready but I have to go through one final interview with the VP. However, he has been out of the office for the past two weeks. She mentioned they are not interviewing anyone else for the position, but I keep seeing the position being posted over and over again on LinkedIn. Any thoughts? I have other offers in the table.
To all of you who sent multiple H1B cap applications: hope you got your wish. I didn’t get mine, but I’m at peace that I only sent one and I didn’t screw up someone else’s chance.
My H1B will expire in august and I am about to join a new firm who will be filing for my H1B transfer and my current firm is starting my H1B extension as well. This would mean both the firms will be simultaneously working on the extension. Would that impact my process? Or are both independent?
If you have a valid visa stamping till Sep 2022 and you are unable to find a job in the 60-day grace period, can you use the same stamping to reenter the US after another employer files for an H1B transfer? Thanks in advance!
I'm looking to join VISA in a strategic director role, and have already applied. However I have two offers from other fintech's on the table. However VISA is my top choice, how do I expedite the interview process?
Hi, I am planning to move to UK and currently working in Sweden. I am looking for companies who could provide a sponsorship visa. Any referral would help me.

Hey there! I’m a newbie on this app and relatively fresh in the industry (1-2 years). I’m at a small agency based in Texas but I feel I’ve plateaued so I’m looking for new opportunities. Only thing is I’m on an H1b visa and would need sponsorship from a new employer. I’ve had offers rescinded, interviews cancelled and pretty much shut doors once the topic comes out. Any tips out there? Or anyone with advice who’s had similar experience?
Has anyone applied for a UK skilled worker visa from Canada? And if yes, how long did it take? Kinda struggling with the immigration team to get any info from them
