    Ugh? You really think there’s any change immigration is going to deny someone from google with your salary?

      USCIS published the approval rate for top 20 companies with most petitions. Legit companies had 99% approval rate. So no, it doesn’t really happen.

      And those staying in India are either waiting for L1 or trying their luck in the lottery.

      People already selected in the lottery working for legit companies are pretty much safe

      So there you go. No visa issues. You always have to wait 1 yrs for the L1.

      The only people who should really be concerned about visa issues are people doing consulting or low pay workers

      Any of you people wonder what your school going kid would do for that 1 year? Or how you would manage your assets if you have to leave abruptly?

      Send him to a school in Switzerland for an year. It’s pricey but at least you can get a 1 yr vacation away from the kid

    Tell the recruiter that if they are asking to join on receipt you would like a backup plan involving relo to Zurich or Toronto

      My Google recruiter told me that there was no guarantee that a backup would be automatically put in place. She said they would try their best to find something for me in an international office, but 'no guarantees'. So I waited until approval to join. They even had a document from immigration saying the same thing - about how they would 'try' to place rejected H1Bs in another country if there was a mutual fit.

      That being said, the approval numbers for Google are looking really good. But there's still a tiny amount of risk.
