Can anyone share the time it takes for immigration to send onboarding approval to HR? Had my start date picked out with manager but NEO team/ HR never reached out with instructions as immigration never gave them confirmation to start the onboarding process.

    Interesting. My visa transfer is complete. Still HR hasn't reached out. Not sure why they would ask me to pick a NEO date then.

    Your comment sounds like you picked a NEO date before visa was filled! How's that possible? Immigration team does not that.

      Yes. Had even a NEO date picked out but two days before joining, recruiter told not to join on that date saying immigration didnt update HR yet.

    Hey, how do I know if I get the approval from immigration .?

    AskHr emailed that I cleared the background verification and they are waiting for the onboarding approval to set the start date.

    Since then I haven’t got any update.

    Note: I don’t have a H1, immigration team filled my I-983 form for stem.

    Talk to your recruiter. They should be able to escalate to HR.

    Be careful. Microsoft's Immigration rescinds a lot of offers...
