    Planning to go for H1-B visa stamping in Mexico

    Guys, I got side tracked, but I did inform my employer about this and he is working to get this corrected in W2. Fortunately I did not file W2 tax returns. Hopefully, will receive corrected W2 by 2nd week of April.

    H-1 and H-4 visa stamping allowed in Canada or Mexico ?

    1. Yes. It is a good idea. This way, the H4 visa stamping will be done in way less time vs if you apply for H4 extension in US itself. You being principal applicant, can take advantage of Automatic Revalidation Provision (ARP) and will not need a visa to re-enter US. Infant can re-enter on valid I-94. Unless you have appeared for an interview at US consulate either in Canada or Mexico, then APR will not be applicable and MUST re-enter US based on the outcome of the visa interview. 2. Yes 3. Yes.

    Going to Nuevo Laredo from Dallas on Feb 24?

    Hi, please let us know the interview questions and over all experience. thank you.
  6. Hello, I am planning to go To Mexico for H1-B visa stamping in June 2020. but there is a problem in my paystub, which I realized late. My employer paid me per-diem and the total taxable pay for year 2019 is less than mentioned in LCA. However the total gross pay was more than mentioned in LCA Is it a risk to travel outside and get stamping ? I can also avoid travel. Please suggest. thanks.
  7. Firstly, you still have time to apply for H1-B extension, since your I-94 is expiring on Jan 9th, 2019. Act immediately. LCA must not take more then a week. And 1 day to apply. If your application reaches on the date of expiry Jan 9, 2019 you are still OK. Just don’t miss or exceed this deadline, else it counts towards unlawful presence. 1. No need to go to home country. You can go to any country. 2. You have mentioned that your change of status was already approved since your H1-B application got picked. I think you may need to get visa converted again to H-4 if planning to re-enter on H-4 visa. From what I know, a non-immigrant cannot hold 2 H-visa’s at the same time. Please re-confirm this from attorney. 3. No 4. H1-B and H4 related questions. Just be truthful. All the best

    H1B amendment is denied when out of country

    Hi, Even though your location/client change H1-B visa amendment got denied, you can still travel as long as you have valid I-797. The good part is, that you already have H1-B visa stamped on your passsport. The ONLY condition is, that at the US port of entry, you will have to show or prove that you are working at the same location and client as mentioned when filing your I-797 originally. You may get lucky if the immigration officer skips this question. Consult your company HR and attorney folks. All the best.

    I-94 Expired, New H1B, unlawful presence?

    Hi, Since your I-94 already expired and your application is already denied, I believe you should leave the country as soon as you can. In your case, unlawful presence of stay already started from December 18, 2018. Did you qualify for premium processing ? If yes, then you should have filed H1-B in premium processing. You may file H1-B with a new employer, but from outside of US. Consult your case with an expert attorney. All the best.
  10. Hi Kumar, Your old I-797 xyz is still valid. Although, this Validity reflects that your previous job, on which this I-797 was approved, is still valid. You will be in better place if you could get a job with the same previous end-client on the same location. All the best.

    H1B extension premium eligibility

    All regular processing’s can be upgraded to premium processing. Consult your attorney on how this can be done.
  12. Hi, What year are you in your H1-B and how many months were you outside of US ? If the visa extension is not based on I-140, then you still have time to file a fresh LCA and re-apply. Plus if you were present anytime outside of US, then you can recapture the period. LCA must not take more than a week. Even if your application reaches USCIS office on the day of I-94 expiry, you will still be good. Is your employer, location and end client same as before ? If yes, then you qualify for premium processing. All the best.

    H1-B Extension : I-797 and I-94 expiring

    Hello All, i have already received visa approval for 3 years. All the best to all folks.
  14. Hi *****, Have you taken a new job and have quit US ? Or is it only for a temporary period that you have taken a job in India ? Make sure when your application is approved, you still have a job in US. By the way, how did you manage to file EB2 NIW ? Are you an IT professional ? Thanks.

    H1 b Visa transfer

    Hi Kumar, Is your new employer not willing to transfer your work visa ? Are you still with your current employer ? My understanding is that since you didn’t initiate a visa transfer, your I-797 will still be valid. Also, PP is not open until Feb 2019, for H1-B transfer cases. I am not an attorney.
