  1. Hello. My last h1b was valid till 9/16/2015 and my driving license was given only till 9/16/2015. After realizing that my license expired i went today to get it renewed in Dallas,TX. My visa is valid till 9/1/2018 and it was approved on 9/1/2015(which is before my previous visa expiration date on 9/16/2015). Lady at the counter told me she was not able to verify my lawful status so i showed her my paystubs, w2, i797 but for no use. She asked me to check back in a week or so after i hear from Texas DPS headoffice in austin or uscis. WTF what is the point of having all these stupid systems when it hinders basic common sense. All the documents were right infront of her to prove lawful status. They could have given something that allows ppl to drive in the meanwhile. So frustrating. Do we have to go through this hassel every 3 years ?? ( h1b extension is given only 3 yrs) till we get the green card ??
  2. Admin Processing for H4. These guys dont understand the pain at all.. I had my admin processing cleared after 7months, anywayz mine was H1 from Chennai consulate. Hope for the best and let us know if u hear any update from them
  3. @all, I had a valid visa from oct1 2011- september 30 2012. I went to india for stamping and got a 221g on my visa. after waiting for 7 months, Query is cleared now and I am flying back to dallas on september 3rd. According to my guess, i-94 that i will get at PORT OF ENTRY(on september 3rd) will be valid only till SEP30th 2012(as my visa will be valid only till september 30th) My employer is ready to file my h1 extension. 1) what are the steps to extend my i-94 ?? 2) I am ready to file h4 for my wife, does she need to carry i-94 for her visa stamping ??

    H1B- Visa Officer asking for documents without issuing 221G

    @all, I got my first H1B(from my old employer) cleared. I appeared for the interview on Jan 30th 2012 and Got a reply from Chennai consulate asking to submit my passport(submitted it and got it stamped) on August 24th 2012.
  5. Hi all, Here's my case: Received 221g Green Slip from chennai consulate on Jan 30 2012 from employer A. Waited for 5months and decided to change to a full time offer with employerB(American firm with 25 employees) . Went for H1b Stamping on new employer(Employer B) on July 6th 2012 at mumbai consulate. Project with employer B is a internal project for a Mobile BI application development. After a Hour Long interview, Visa Officer gave me a green slip and asked me to submit documents regarding internal project(status of the project, number of people working in the project, market analysis) between 10:30 to 11:00 am at Mumbai consulate in person. Here's the catch: She hasn't given me any case number on the Green Slip. Green Slip had my CEAC Bar Code(bar code that we receive when we book the visa slot). I received the documents on friday and planning to visit the consulate in near time soon. Is this strange asking documents without issuing 221G(without writing case number) ???

    221g Blue chennai Tracker

    @VisaBlues @Sathys01 : Thanks guys for your views on my case. I have applied for new h1b thru new employer and got it approved for 3 years. However, application is sent as a premium processing case. I am looking around all the blogs/murthy forum to get myself prepared before going ahead for stamping. I am bit worried as my new employer is a new company around 2 years old and has only around 20 employers and me being the first Non-Immigrant resource. I will see till the day i go for stamping on this new h1. If i hear anything about my old h1 i will quit going for stamping again. @Sathys01: Thanks for updating us with your analysis, can I know where did u get this information from ?? 2) About my interview questions: My employer has sister companies. He usually uses 1 company for h1 filing's and second one only for getting projects. As he filed my h1 as an internal project. VO asked me to prove both companies are the same. I tried to show him LCA where it is mentioned but he was specific in kind of document which states so ..... We tried to contact USCIS via Congressmen in March but that went in vain. After that, till date neither my employer nor the client haven't received anything from USCIS.

    Chennai Consulate's PDF has only 221g PINK SLIP case numbers, all other cloured slips wont show up in the PDF. THATS what I heard from VFS helpline number

    221g Green - Admin Processing, Chennai Consulate on Jan 30 2012 ... still waiting i was a direct hire to a company that has inhouse proj. My employer has sister companies, my client letter was from company A and my h1 was from Company B (both A& B are sister companies). VO asked whether both of them are same or not ..I showed him both are same in LCA but could not show him valid letter from US government. After this question he handed me my passport back. Legally both of them are same company
