Thanks for the AMA Peter. My question is about premium processing of H1 visa. With premium processing halted, change of employer would have to go to regular H1 processing - which is a matter of months. What is your advise on employment transfer - one should wait till premium processing is resumed, or start working as soon as transfer receipt is obtained, or any other option/advice?

First of all, even without premium processing, H-1B petitions are getting approved relatively quickly (1-2 months). But if it's a solid H-1B petition, then there's really little risk to "port" after the petition has been received.

Thanks Peter!
