Azure AD B2B in Azure Government
B2B is available for US Government tenants now. See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/b2b/current-limitations#how-can-i-tell-if-b2b-collaboration-is-available-in-my-azure-us-government-tenant to see if it’s available for the tenant you want to collaborate with.

There is also a discrepancy in being "available" and actually being available. It appears that it is in the process of rolling out to Azure Government tenants, but some (based on the instructions this post provides) still have "tenant_region_scope" set to "USG", not "USGov".
The good news is, I came across this post mentioning that Microsoft is " transitioning all USG values to USGov over the next few months" (posted on June 11, 2020: https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs/issues/56915). It may not be a firm or official date. but it's helpful to have some date mentioned.
This isn't complete. Nearly every comment in here is talking about B2B between Azure Government and Commercial, for example companies that have both O365 GCC-High and Commercial tenants. This has been asked again and again, and yet this was marked as complete because B2B exists in Azure Government. What exists is Azure Gov to Azure Gov only, not to Commercial. There is a disconnect between the literal ask, and the actual commentary, intention, and desire expressed in this topic. What is complete is not what has been asked for.
I don't see this feature listed in the Office 365 Roadmap. If my tenant is showing that it's "not supported" based on the link with the completed status from the Azure AD Team, how will we know when we would have this enabled for our tenant?

Is there an ETA on this added functionality? We are in dire need of this capability as we are developing data warehouse and analysis service solutions in our AzureGov tenant, but are having integration issues with our Azure AD GCC and PowerBI GCC users being able to utilize the solution with their work identities. Instead, we are having to figure out ways to work around a problem that should just work like it does in the Azure commercial cloud!

Is this still targeted for CY20Q1 for other Azure Government tenants? Is there a date for when this feature will be available for Commercial tenants?
We absolutely need b2b ability between gcc high and commercial and vice versa. Orgs with international offices are not going to place intl users in GCC high so they will create a commercial tenant for users in intl offices. Doing this eliminates any possibility for collaboration. Additionally, data that can be shared with external orgs, like HR docs, or accounting won't have the ability to collaborate.

Also need this integration between GCC and Commercial

Hello Azure team,
Is there an updated ETA on this? We really need the functionality to be able to implement B2B between a commercial and government tenant.

We really need this capability asap. Contractors in the gov cloud that handle sensitive info need to be able to leverage a single identity model that our clients in the DoD space have invested heavily in with Microsoft. B2B would really help in this regard.
Is there any update regarding this functionality? There is a gaping hole in functionality without it.

+2, closer timeline post NYE would be helpful.
Simone Iglesias commented
We really need this working as soon as possible. Is there an update on specifically when in CY20Q1 the functionality will be deployed?
Any update on this??

Is there any word on when we would have the ability for an organization using the Azure Commercial Instance to add Guest Users for an ID that is using the Azure Government Instance? I understand that is not on the first iteration due CY20Q1.
My organization works with several vendors and we are using the Azure AD B2B Feature to better integrate with these Vendors. Unfortunately, this limitation affects this strategy and thus we are looking for a better solution.

Any update on this feature? Did it get cancelled or did the release date slip? Also, what is the timeline for adding commercial guests?

This has been slated for a release in CY19Q2. Is there an update on when the functionality will be deployed?
