H1B transfer denied after RFE

Juniper / Eng Etcbtc
Mar 16, 2018 42 Comments

Was supposed to join FB as a senior engg. My visa transfer got rejected today after an RFE for speciality occupation.

USCIS site says they are still reviewing it, but DHS site shows they denied my transfer on the 12th.

P.S: I have a masters degree in CS, 6 years of experience in relevant domain & getting paid well at both places.

      I think they will! They have to do something.

      It might take time but I think you can appeal a denial. Please talk to your attorneys. USCIS and DHS have lost their minds

      Your employer, and their ilk, is the reason why this system is so screwed btw.

      Okay. Thanks for enlightening. Keep smoking and living in a delusion and fallacy. Ask your employer to not have us employed.

    This is crazy!!
    And why did you quit before the transfer?

      Usually folks quit on receipt. If they wait for transfer they will be waiting for long time.

      I hope things get sorted for the guy.

      Premium processing is just a matter of 15 days, and with RFE it was a huge risk anyway. He's going to FB, I'm pretty sure they could wait more.
      But yeah, I hope it gets sorted out soon.

      I think they had stopped premium processing awhile back. Is it back now?

      Yeah, last September.

      Can't you withdraw your resignation? Can't Facebook put you in Vancouver or Europe?

    As I said in another thread, USCIS has declared war and they are not even bothering to justify their denials

    This is capital grade bs from the uscis! :(

    One just shouldn't resign before getting a transfer completed. At this point, I'd be afraid to do that even if premium processing was removed.

    They can reapply under counselor processing meaning you will have to go out of country and get your visa stamped once it’s approved. Check out trackitt.com
