This my first time filing for transfer. I really want to put my 2-weeks notice ASAP but I’m afraid of my application get rejected for whatever reason. Do you guys recommend waiting on approval? Or receipt should be enough?
My LCA will be filled today or tomorrow.

    No, it is too risky. Just wait for few more weeks. Maybe go on vacation if you are too frustrated with your job/team/manager.

    No..always join after getting approval notice . Can never predict the outcome with recent horror stories of H1 extn rejections

    Thank you. Seems to risky from your comments 😖. I’ll wait hopefully less than 2 weeks then I’m all set.

      Was it in premium processing? How much time it takes with regular processing? Any idea?

      2 weeks is not bad when premium is available. My friend had to wait for 6 months as premium processing was suspended

      I had no idea about LCA, I thought it’s just the petition and 15 days. But it seems it could take around a month easily.

      Yes, a month or two is a standard. I would wait for the approval unless you are in some sort of urgency

      No urgency but I will need to push my starting date as it will be impossible to start late July

    Give 2 weeks notice once you have hard copy of the approval notice.

      Approval on USCIS is not enough?

      I read someone saying he got ref after he got online approval .. maybe that’s why hard copy is the prove
