  1. While exiting USA, does someone who now has GC need to turn in their I-94 card they received on last entry on H1 visa?
  2. I know for non-immigrant/visitor's visa applicants from India, they need to have atleast 6 months of passport valid before travelling to USA. Does that rule also apply if you're a US permanent resident (GC holder) ? In other words, can GC Holder with India passport travel from India to US with passport expiring in less than 6 months? Can it cause issue with airlines or at POE in USA?
  3. Just curious to find an estimated guess, when will EB2/India priority date of Jan 2007 will become current ? At the moment, it is Sept 2004 as per April 2013 visa bulletin. Thanks in advance.
  4. My spouse's H1 visa stamp and approval will expire in June this year. We're filing for extension now. Can she travel abroad between now and June using the current H1 visa? Will such travel after filing for extension invalidate the extension petition? We have heard USCIS may consider an extension petition abandoned if one travels abroad after filing extension. But in her case, she will be travelling within the validity of the previous H1 visa stamp. Please advise.

  8. If someone with valid EAD and pending AOS but no AP leaves country without AP approval, and then returns using H4 visa, will that abandon their AOS application? Can they resume work on EAD after returning?

    Travel while EAD renewal is pending.

    I have to travel abroad and my EAD expires in April. I'm thinking of applying now (less than 90 days expiry), so by the time I return from vacation , my new EAD will arrive before expiry of previous one. Can one leave the country after filing EAD renewal without abandoning that application? I know one must have AP approval in hand before departure but I guess that isn't a requirement for EAD. I can go abroad while EAD application is pending. Is that assumption fair?
  10. There's a question on DS-160 : Who pays for your trip? I work for a US employer and I'm currently on a personal vacation to India and therefore the trip will be paid by me, not by employer. During this trip, I also plan to go for visa stamping before returning to USA. Does it hurt my visa chances if I answered above question by saying, I will pay for the trip myself? Or should this always be answered like employer will pay for the trip?
  11. I work as Full time employee with a large US company (1.5 Billion USD in revenue and 6000+ employees). I need to go for H1b visa stamping in India. I have read in forums that consulates sometime ask for these documents- 1. Petitioner's Federal Tax returns for last 2 years. 2. List of all employees showing immigration status, job title, start date, salary, etc. 3. W2 of all employees in last one year 4. State Unemployment wage reports (These are forms filed with state for last 3 qrtrs showing wages paid to all employees). 5. Photos of employer's office building / work site. Do I need to carry the above documents, considering the large size of my employer? It may not be easy to obtain all this documentation... Please advise asap.
  12. can someone please advise on above question.

    PIMS update required?

    I have interview scheduled for H1b visa stamping soon in New Delhi, India. Do we still need to send information to PIMS database in Kentucky Center before going for visa interview? or was that older process and no longer valid now? please advise asap.
  14. Is it ok to attend online school in US while working full time on H1B? I'm assuming this doesn't offend any H1b rules ... please advise.
  15. I remember reading from forums couple of years back that before one appears for H1b visa stamp interview, we need to have "some file transferred .." from USCIS Kentucky office to the consular post in advance where you're appearing for visa interview. Is this still the procedure? If yes, how to apply for this file transfer? please advise asap. I'm working in USA and will go for visa stamping in India shortly.

    H1b visa stamping - File Transfer needed?

    Yes, I'm talking about the PMIS update. Thanks for reminding. Is it still the process or was it in old days?
  18. A friend of mine came to US on visitor visa and later got married to a permanent resident. Her husband became naturalized citizen 2 years later,and they want to file for her green card petition. My friend is now out of status over 2 years due to overstaying her visa. What are the chances of her I-130 immigrant petition be approved? Can she file AOS if I-130 is approved or does she need to leave the country and wait outside for 3 or 10 yr ban period before applying for immigrant visa at the consular? Can they file a waiver citing family hardship to US citizen spouse and kids?

    Remote work while on EAD

    I have I-485 pending and EAD & AP available. If I travel to home country for 2-3 months due to family emergency, can I work from there without violating any EAD terms. My employer is ok with remote work and willing to run payroll during this time. The other option is to take leave of absence for 3 months. Please advise, what to do in order not to risk pending AOS.

    H1b visa stamping - File Transfer needed?

    Can anyone please advise. Thanks,

    Employment verification letter

    Does the employment verification letter for H1b stamping need to state job duties also? The one that our HR issues simply states job Title, current salary and start date.

    DS 160 From Question

    I have another question for form DS-160. What do we enter when asked : Employer's Contact Person. Is this someone in Human Resources or would this your immediate supervisior/Manager? i work for a large company (>5000 employees) and wondering if it would make sense to put Manager as Contact person insead of HR since HR wouldn't necessarily know enough details (job duties, etc) if contacted.

    salary question

    I have been working for a large US employer as full time employee since last two years on H1b and need to go for visa stamping in home country (India). My salary has increased by around 20% (15k) since the original salary stated in LCA when I joined. Can this be a problem during visa stamping? There is no other change in employment. Please advise.
  24. Could someone please post list of documents to carry for H1b visa stamping at the consulate in New Delhi, India. Thanks

    Employment verification letter

    I have a similar question. I need to go for H1B visa stamping in India. I joined my employer one & half year back and has been working with them in USA. Do I need to obtain Employment verification Letter or will the original Appointment Letter along with last 4 paystubs will be sufficient for visa interview? Second question, my salary is now about 15k more than the salary at the time of joining. The employer will issue verification letter with the latest salary. Will there be problem if current salary is significantly different from the salary stated on original H1b petition at the time of joining?
