H1B visa transfer Joining Facebook or Google but got RFE

Dec 16, 2019 30 Comments

Hey Guys,

I got rfe on 12/13 while transfering my H1B visa. ( rfe reason: SO)

I was wondering wherher any one of you have or are facing the similar RFE challenging when joining Facebook or Google.

And usually what the company will do if the worst scenario ( denial) happen? will they refile it or it is dependent on the specific team and hiring manager?

Role: Product manager
YOE: 3 years
Education: master degree in engineering management and product management( STEM major from engineering shool)

    RFE has nothing to do with team or manager. The HR needs to resolve it

      Unclear. Is the claim that your occupation isn't special or is it that they need proof of it being special

    How soon did you hear about the RFE? I saw the status change online to RFE last week but my lawyers said that they did not receive any RFE details yet. Hope yours get resolved soon.

    The team cannot do anything - it’s immigration lawyers

      Immigration lawyer told me if I get denial, it’s up to my company whether they want refile it or not.

    Also your background. Like if you’re an electrical engineer and you’re doing swe, it’s common.
