    H1B laid off, change of status?

    Once you are officially terminated on H1, you are out of status, unless there is another h1 petition or COS petition filled with USCIS. So your application for COS to B1/B2 should reach USCIS before the official last day at work and you should have paystubs till that date.

    H1B filing employer criteria

    1. Does the vendor/company that files my H1 need to be e-verified since I am on my opt stem extension?: NO, the company you work with on OPT extension has to be e-verified and Not the one filling for H1. 2. Also do I need to start working for the new vendor as soon as my they file my H1 or in October when it kicks in?:If your new vendor is e-verified you can start asap, if not then 1st Oct. 3. Will there be any issues if instead on April I decide to get my H1 filed in October? If the quota is full, you will have to wait untill next april to file again

    H1 transfer while H1 extension in pending.

    Company B can file for your H1 anytime, there is no thing like transfer Company B will file a New H1 petition on your behalf that will be CAP exempt since you were already counted towards the quota in the past... USCIS will surely ask you for paystubs as long as you have all the paystubs ( alteast last 3 months ) and your company B is not consulting EVC model, everything should be fine... Apply thru Premium Processing is advisable.

    H4 Stamping-H1 Rejected earlier

    Yes, tell the truth.
  13. If your h1 gets approved thru consular processing means your exytension of stay was deniend and you will be in the contry ILEGALLY starting the date of denial. You will have to leave the country get stamped come in with new i-94 n then only u can dtart working. If your previous h1 visa on passport is valid u can go to boder post and re enter with new i-94 n start working.

    H1B transfer, when to join the new company

    Best and Safest is after approval But you shoudn't join untill you receive the Receipt Number... Wait for it...... If you application was thru premium processing then its just a matter of day or 2 you will have receipt number, with regular it might take 1-2 weeks
  19. You should avoid travel while a petition is pending.... When you depart you have to submit I-94 If you are outside the country USCIS will approve petition thru consular processing and you will have to go for Stamping again

    chennai consulate office photo fraud

    You should be Grateful that they have such a service inside the consulate... have you ever thought that if it wasn't there... you might have to go out get a photo instantly and come back wait in line again and things like that? Would you rather do that or give 200RS and have peace of mind and get things done right from the consulate....
