So according to USCIS website it appears premium visa processing would resume from tomorrow, 19th Feb 2019. Does that include new Visa transfers as well?

    Waiting 6-8 months just for visa transfer seems worst esp when you are stuck up in a bad role/company which doesn’t help much with your career. I am also thinking of Canada options.

      Imagine the people who are waiting for a lottery to be picked up for 3 years in a row and can’t travel because it takes them ages to even tell you if your lottery got selected. It sucks!

      If transfer got rejected while you were working at the new employer, can you immediately go back to previous employer?

      No, old employer will need to pay you for the time you were away as if you never left to continue on the same visa. Almost never happens so need to file new

      This is bad. Very bad and frustrating and annoying. Feeling like a puppet now.

      Don’t think they’ll open up premium anytime soon; this administration has really screwed people over

    No. It’s for transfers filed before Dec. 21, 2018.

    Legal immigration is going to be even tougher if republicans re-elected for next term.
