Re: I moved last month and I have still so many questions

yes but you need to keep good records, e.g. you may get a refund in the UK if you stop working for a UK employer mid year, you may already have claimed that tax as a credit on US taxes, so if you...

Re: I moved last month and I have still so many questions

Most people in the US file a tax return, it’s not like the UK. I was commuting to the UK for a while and had UK income to declare on my US returns. The DTA likely means you won’t have much US...

Re: I-131 Reopen Notice

No but I was told not to use the EAD or AP as it invalidates the L1. I think for an L1 they are only needed if you get fired/quit before the I-485 is approved.

Re: Visa Appointment Wait Times..... 300+ Days?? :s

Not sure if your being moved or being asked to move, that often dictates what an employer is willing to do. A written agreement to apply for a green card for your and/or some sort of repatriation...

Re: Covid-19 Vaccination -- Have You Gotten It?

Re: Visa Appointment Wait Times..... 300+ Days?? :s

Interesting that your are able to talk to your employers lawyer directly (I assume they are on a flat fee model). Generally these things run through HR/Managment.

Re: Relocation Package

Yes being picked is the first step, and assuming the employer knows what they are doing, you would think they would not make an offer or apply unless it was likely to be approved.

Re: ESTA visit from UK to US during covid

more precisely you must go to a 3rd county without restrictions for at least 14 days, the UK is only one of the countries with restrictions, so a stop in most of Europe for example would not work.

Re: Travelling on ESTA

It costs GBP10-20 to setup a UK Limited company so that is not a big deal in itself.
