No premium processing yet

What you all think? If premium processing does not resume in a week, will it ever resume by October 2019 ?

This is very frustrating ; after trying couple times I have an offer from Amazon, but I'm worried to join on reciept. Team cannot wait till I get decision.

I might end up joining but, I'll be risking everything because I did masters, worked for 8 years, have a life here; I'm single and no fall back plan to my wife Visa or such.

    Always prepare a plan b man. And I have been seeing ppl submitted in Feb getting approvals. So just sit tight.

    • @rbe : Link to the post?

      I have a feeling it will start soon too because if you look at the USCIS load on h1stat.ru, you will notice since PP, pending approvals have greatly decreased there by suggesting that they might open up the PP for transfers

      @usernotav if you spend an hour on h1b tracker forum and you will find it. That post only has 2 comments so should be easy.

    • Unless, they will just say, since FY2020 applications are coming in, NO PP till October, which will be mind boggling

      @usernotav I'm sure everyone whose waiting for PP can feel you; because it's not easy, specially to getting into job you really like.

    Join on receipt. What’s the worse that can happen? Amazon can transfer you to another country.

    Is there any other reason we could tell the hiring manager except for "Visa approval"? For them to wait or move the joining date..

    What if worst happens? Will Amazon transfer you elsewhere?

      Worst is going back to India; even if Amazon can transfer me elsewhere, I have leave country immediately otherwise, I start accruing illegal stay.
