    The average time for H-1B visa transfer used to vary from a few weeks to a few months. With premium processing, you were essentially guaranteed a decision in 2 weeks by USCIS.

    Since the new administration removed premium processing, the average time for processing has gone up to 3-6 months. This is really difficult for people looking to change jobs since an employer may not want to wait for that long for a new employee.

    This adds further to the problems faced by H-1B visa holders as they are tied to an employer for longer and if they get laid off, it'll be difficult for another employer to quickly transfer the visa.
