Applied for H1b transfer on nov15 and got receipt on nov29th. The plan was to wait for Pp to resume in feb. but today I got email from google onboarding that the visa processing is done! Did I get lucky or just a glitch in onboarding update?

BAL website is down so can’t really verify until tomorrow.

      If theres no PP Google will file case, and add PP as soon as it becomes available(assuming your case hasn't finished processing by time it comes back).

      That's good to know. You don't need to ask them to upgrade it or anything?

      Nope no need to ask. Once in a while you might get a disgruntled lawyer from BAL, but apart from that people are super nice!

    They have agreed to wait till feb end. So for now they are ready to wait if pp opens up in feb. if not, I don’t know what they will do.

      Which team/area you will be joining? My team said no for the wait.

      The team I was matched with said no too. I think the team matching will happen again after approval.
      It’s in Bay Area.

      They are processing your visa without a team? That’s strange. Or did the team say no later on after visa was submitted for transfer?

      Yes, I don’t think there is a team.

    Nope that doesn't mean approval is done. Merely means you got your receipt. Same happened with me.
