  1. What is it you want? Assuming the college is reasonably well known your chances of getting the F1 visa are good if you indicate you turned down the H1 chance in order to further your academic cred. Of course, be aware the VO has seen it all and can recognize sincerity or something else.

    Why not get your passport renewed and the question will be moot?

    How to change status from H1B to EAD

    She can apply. It will be a waste of money as it will not be granted.

    Renew B-2 in USA for Russian citizen

    "Russian nationals may continue applying for non-immigrant visas at any U.S. embassy or consulate where they can obtain an appointment." One suggestion is the US consulate in Tijuana, Mexico. Please be aware that I would not have any idea about the effects of Mr. Putin's escapades on the willingness of this or any US Consulate to issue a B2 visa for Russian Citizens.

    H1B questions

    As an Indian Citizen, you can work for any company back home remotely or otherwise. You are in H1 status only when you are working in the USA on the basis of H1 petition approval. If you work remotely that period of time is not part of your H1 entitlement and you will be able to add that on to your total period of 6 years in H1 status.
  7. Once he comes over apply for a reentry permit for him allowing him 2 years of leeway. Also, discuss the specifics with a lawyer.

    Renew B-2 in USA for Russian citizen

    Visas by definition can only be obtained out of the country. If you are asking whether her stay can be extended beyond the initial 6 months, then she can certainly apply for an extension before her period of stay ends. It does not matter if the visa stamp expires in the meantime.

    GC Processing

    Your PD remains untouched. But retrogression may be possible delaying your ability to file AOS after the GC is approved.
  10. Run your contract by a labor lawyer in that state.

    H1B Transfer

    It is possible. But you should consult a lawyer with your specifics to cover your bases.
  12. Her status is always based on your valid status. The H4 extension will be redundant as there is nothing to extend after she leaves. Her visa will be based on your H1 petition approval. Nothing called H4 petition as opposed to say an H1 petition.

    Is age a restriction for spouse to get an F1 visa

    The caliber and/or credibility of the school is one major factor. Age is not a factor by itself.

    Travel on old employer Visa

    You can enter till the expiry of the current visa stamp. Your I94 will be based on the H1 Petition approval expiry with B.
  15. You have to consider any flight cancellations or delays and hence I would try to book at least a week ahead of visa expiry.
  16. No. You can frame it as a memento and/or just move on.

    H1B to F1 Visa

    Can you not get into a good Ph.D. Program? It would be extremely risky for you to apply for an F1 visa for your second Masters? What fields are they in?

    Unused approved H1B validity

    Unless you got the visa stamp, you cannot use that approval.

    Approved i140 but moved back to India

    1. Every so-called H1 "transfer" is a new non-cap H1 petition by the new employer which needs approval. 2. That GC application is only relevant in that you are allowed H1 extensions with any employer till the PD is current. Since you do not intend to work for the GC employer, any new employer will need to start with PERM onwards though you retain the PD of the existing I-140. 3. Yes.
  20. In view of the Immigrant intent shown by you, a COS to F1 or obtaining an F1 visa will be near impossible. It may be possible to return for a year and then have the company file a cap-subject H1 for you in 2024 or send you back in L1A status at an appropriate time.

    Application for Admission Withdrawn *10000*

    It means The CBP has allowed her to return to her country of her own volition as opposed to expedited removal which would mean a ban for 5 years.. It is possible her existing visa was rendered invalid by reason of overstay and she will need a new visa. It may be in her interest to consult with the firm of Murthy for appropriate guidance before applying for the tourist visa.

    H4 Stamping With Pending H1B Sol Pros Case

    It should not affect their visa stamping. Discuss your situation with a very Good lawyer dealing in all matters prostitution-related. Which State?

    Travelling to Canada or Mexico on expired stamping

    The latest I94 is controlling. Yes, you can use AVR to visit Canada and return.

    H1 Transfer from Cap Exempted to Capped

    The PD will not change whatever you do.
  25. They will inevitably lose the GC if they keep on visiting for a month and staying out for 11 months. In order to retain the Green Card, they need to come over and become residents here.
