      I hope you are watching myaccount.uscis.dhs.gov because it updates there first.

      Yeah, on my account.uscis.dhs it shows approved. How long does egov take to update?

    Congratulations!! Did your new company tell you if they have a back up in place in case something goes wrong with the transfer?

      No, I think they don’t promise anything on paper. But my manager and immigration team told me that they will take care of the case if anything goes south.

      Congrats for approval. How the company takes care if h1b transfer is denied ?

    • OP
      They appeal the decision by uscis and also start a process to move you to your home country or to Canada. Not sure 100% though.

    • OP
      Lol no! But EY files H1B for the new grads before they join the firm so they have more chances to try their luck!
