I’m on H1B ( with approved I-140 ) and looking to accept an offer from Microsoft and start the H1B transfer process. ( I’m not going to join unless approval is received, def not on H1B petition receipt )

I have been seeing multiple posts on Blind about people getting an RFE in their H1B transfer process with Microsoft.

Wanted to know the stats and how proactive and helpful Microsoft’s immigration team is during this stressful process ? Also, if you got an RFE , denial or rejection then what was the reason ?

    I thought Microsoft HRs themselves don’t give a green light till the petition is approved. I went through the process a year back.

      Got it thanks .....

      Btw Did you join Microsoft in the past few years ? If yes then was the transfer filed in Premium by default or did you have to ask for it ?
