What does Apple do when their employees didn't get a H1B lottery in the end? Is there a oversea office they will send you to? If so what is the policy like? Do you have to have a similar oversea team as you are in now?
Software Engineer position.

    Yes we do have a team handling all Immigration related relocation . Your manager will have to initiate the process.

      Why manager? Why can't individual do it herself? In Google, I can initiate any immigration process including GC if I'm employed. I don't need approvals.

      It’s like asking why all companies are not doing free food?
      Everything comes at a cost and it has to go through approvals.

      Depends on team requirement and dependency of the team on you.

      IS&S ?

  • Depends on team and org. They do relocate to other offices to work around visa. If you aren’t from IS&T, you will have options other than India

    India has a maps team which is an option if you are from India and want to go there

    Yes but wouldn’t that be transferring to another team? I think Urhw48 was trying to say that you can work for the same team but from a location outside the country.

      That would depend on the team and manager. Easy if other location has a local team working on the same thing. But if not It is tougher to do at Apple compared to other companies.
