Work VISA

Microsoft Onboard Process

Got an offer weeks ago and immigration team reached out to me for visa evaluation + background check. HR doesn’t response any email.. Please share if you went through the same process.

How long does it take Microsoft immigration team to take visa evaluation?
And how long does it take Fragomen to file h1b transfer after visa evaluation?

Thanks!

    It can take a month, easily, just for the background check. Longer for immigration. Patience ☺

      I know of someone who signed their offer in May and started in September. Ive also heard of it going a little faster, and a little slower.

      It's real for the US immigration system. And for people trying to validate education and employment in countries that have record keeping that they don't trust very much.

    I have managed that process as a hiring manager. Be patient. “The time it takes is what it takes” as we say.

    What process does Fragomen have to post the job and interview you?

    If you share where you found the job posting and how the interview process is managed I can explain how that affects things.

      Thanks! They don’t mention those processes on the job posting. But I believe it’s pretty general for all new hires..

      Where did you get the job posting? It matters who you posted it and where.

      Did Microsoft post it on a job board somewhere? Or did a recruiter post it and on which board?

    I’d recommend just asking if you can work in your local Microsoft office in India.

    Microsoft has offices in roughly 150 countries. The fact that Microsoft gets any visas at all is a mystery. Microsoft doesn’t need visas to hire people.

      Avoid working in the US. That country will destroy your soul.

    From accepting the offer till h1b receipt is about two months.
