  1. Hi Guys, Here's my situation: Had a H1B visa with my current employer, which was cleared after long wait of the administrative processing in hyderabad consulate in india. Never travelled to US on that. Found a New employer in the US, they filed my H1B petition (cap exempt) and got it approved. Right now I am in Johannesburg South Africa on an assignment. Can I go to the US consulate here in joburg and get the stamp without any issues? Are there any specific documents that the Consulate here would need in regard to my current work status here in SA? Please advise.. Regards Diwakar

    Need Advise on H1B quota exempt

    Thanks! Yeah, approval depends on the documentation and employer credentials.. Thanks a ton for the response!
  3. Here's my case H1B approved for Employer A in 2012 quota(last year). Got stuck in Administrative processing, finally cleared and Visa stamped on june 2012. Was valid only until Sept 30th 2012. Never travelled to US on H1B and Now my petition and Stamp have expired. Now Employer B wants to file a H1B for me using my previous one. His attorney says that they could file a fresh petition for me as a cap-exempt and get it approved. Could you please advise if this is possible? If so, what are the chances of its approval? Thanks Diwakar

    H1B cap-exempt query

    Thanks a lot for the response :) my new employer is still checking with his attorney.
  5. Hello everyone! I have been a huge fan of the Murthy Forum for a while. Got a lot of help and motivation while my H1b was stuck in administrative processing for about an year. I have a query regarding my H1B tranasfer. I will explain my case to you and then look for an answer: My current employer had applied for my H1B in FY 2011-12 quota. My petition had got approved without any issues, but when I went for stamping in India in August of 2011, the VO put my case on administrative processing. The administrative processing finally ended in June of 2012 and I got my visa stamped. It was only valid until 30th sept 2012. Now my new employers wants to file my H1B under the cap-exempt category. Is that a possibility? I have never been in the US on a H1 status before and my petition expired on 30th sept 2012. Please advise..

    Any EC models with Blue 221G in Hyd

    I received the mail from consulate on 24 May to submit the passport, managed to submit it to the VFS hyderabad on 30 May, havent heard back after that. Fingers crossed
  10. No updates at all, I send the same mail to the VFS every week and get the same standard response. Have left all hopes now

    Is Hyd Consulate stopped approving H1-B Visas?

    Congrats rasheed1011 I have been waiting for almost 6 months now, submitted the documents to the hyd consulate twice, but still no luck :( I just hope that I get the visa soon
  12. After repeated queries to the VFS about my case since my document submission on 13th of Jan, this afternoon VFS responded asking to submit the same documents again. Dont know what's going on. Why would they ask for the same documents? this doesnt make any sense to me. It simply seems a way to drag my case longer. Really pathetic

    Any EC models with Blue 221G in Hyd

    After repeated queries to the VFS about the status of my case, this afternoon VFS responded that I need to submit the documents again to them. The same ones I submitted on 13th of Jan. This is just ridiculous. They are intentionally doing this just to drag the case longer.
  14. I have been waiting since 25th Aug 2011. No updates yet :(
  15. @rasheed1011: thats cool! mine never shows any such status. Dont know why there is such a difference in tracking of 221g's.
