Are people on h1b Visa currently switching companies / interviewing to switch companies s, especially given the visa situations ?

Or is there a hiring freeze for h1b candidates ?

I see a lot of posts discussing offers but not sure if those people are citizens or are here on a visa .

    It depends on if you are an Indian

      Nope. Nationality is irrelevant for H1b

      Are you being sarcastic?
      If not then please share your experience, why do you say that?

      In case you didn’t get it, it was sarcastic and this is how Trump speaks.

    USCIS got rid of premium processing transfers this year. This means it will take significantly longer for you to legally switch companies (could be 4 months rather than 2-4 weeks). I don’t really understand why @G8£r4d said that it depends on if you are Indian unless they are trying to insinuate some sort of racial hiring bias for tech companies.
