A Positive post for those awaiting H1b transfer approval

I got my approval for H1b transfer after almost 4 months of waiting.

Offer received - 2/14
H1b transfer process started - 3/1
Application submitted - 3/21
RFE received (on the USCIS page) - 4/2
RFE document received - 4/19
RFE submitted to Fragommen - 5/9
RFE response submitted by Fragommen- 5/31
Approval email received by Fragommen - 6/5

Current employer - Amazon
Future employer - Walmart

For all those waiting out there, Patience is the key. Keep pushing your lawyer to apply for quickly otherwise they will take their time. Make sure to keep the recruiter and the HM in loop about the updates so they know what and who is causing the delay and finally good luck to all waiting

My role is a pure managerment non technical role

    Did you move to Walmart yet? Or did you wait till the transfer was approved before you moved?

    Looks like most of the delay was due to Fragommen process and not due to USCIS processing delays. Congratulations btw!

    I don’t understand this delay. Who submitted to Fragommen and why did they take so long?
