    Xerox Copies for H4 Visa Interview

    Yes, by all means photocopies of all documents should be fine. They will verify petition information thru PIMS
  7. Mostly everyone goes with Original I-797 and copies of I-129 because original I-129 is submitted to USCIS. As i said explain the employer that you need the notice for stamping and you will return it once u are back..... VFS just needs a copy of I-797 because they will verify your approved petition thru PIMS so all they need is a number from the photocopy.... Expalin to your employer and talk to attorneys

    Visa Rejected - what options do I have?

    You can go for H4 stamping anytime... you dont have to resign and alll Once u re-enter us on h4, you CANNOT work with new employer He has to file a new petition with Change of Status, get approval with new I-94 and then only you can start working for the employer.....
  16. 1. You dont need I-129 Original, you will always get a copy of it.... Tell you employer you need it for stamping and will return to them once u are back to US.... Show them consulate email or link that says you need I-797 for stamping.... 2. Ask your attorney to contact uscis for date change.

    Doubt regarding Client letter for h1b Extension

    They will surely want client letter..... You can try asking project manager to write down on a plain peice of paper even that will work as long as s/he signs it with date and duration and allll... Without client letter it will be vry hard to get approval

    H1B Visa refused

    What are the chances of Visa reaffirmation? Depends on the facts of your case And how long will it take? it might take MONTHS to get reaffirmation What are the chances of applying for H1 transfer through the vendor for the same client while this case is in pending status? A new employer (vendor) can file h1b petition on your behalf... No one can predict the chances of approval however if it gets approved, you still need to get stamping done.
