I have to give three months’ notice at work. So linking the end of my employment to having my US Visa is a nightmare. Despite all the warnings on the Visa paperwork not to do anything rash before one’s Visa is approved, I don’t have much choice but to second guess when the Visa will be sorted and resign.
With a planned travel date of 28 November, I put in my resignation today, giving me a final working date of Friday 21 November. That leaves me a week for any final preparations.
