  1. 1. Since "transfer" to company B wasn't approved, its like a bridge petition. So even if Company C's petition is approved, extension of stay can be denied and you will have to stop working immediately go back get a valid visa stamp and return to work. 

    2. Employment in the US is at will. You can just resign and walk off. 

    3. What's your I-94 expiration date? That's the most valid date till which you can work. 

  2. 1. If transfer gets rejected you have 60 days to find another employer and/or get out.

    2. You CANNOT go back to the old employer. When you stopped working for them, they were required by law to notify USCIS that you stopped working for them. Even if they did not, you did not maintain a status with them, so you cannot go back. 

  3. There is no way for you to know if PMIS is updated or not. Your attorney would have sent a duplicate copy of I-129 along with the original petition. If your application was approved 9 months ago, dont worry, it would have been updated. My application was approved in august and stamping was done in first week of dec successfully via dropbox.

  4. Are you working on internal projects? or a client? If you are working on internal project, you need to send project documentation like what the project is ,scope, deliverable your duties etc.. Any documentation that proves that you are wroking on a legit internal project.

  5. I wanted to share my H1-B renewal stamping expereince at the Bombay Consulate via Dropbox. 


    My Case: H1-B renewal, same company, same class. 


    Documents taken at the Visa Application Center: 

    1. Dropbox Confirmation Letter
    2. DS-160
    3. Passport
    4. Copy of Approved I-797 A 
    5. One Recent Passport Photo

    They did not take any other documents.

    They were NOT interested in looking at anything. 

    They returned the confirmation letter with signature on it as a proof of acceptance. 


    Sequence of Events: 

    Dec 1 - Submitted Documents via Dropbox (Took 5 mins start to finish)

    Dec 2 - Passport was delivered to the consulate. Case was created and tracking was now available at the consulate website. Status: Ready

    Dec 3 - Passport Still at the consulate. Status: Admin Processing

    Dec 4 - Passport Still at the consulate. Status: Issued

    Dec 4 - At 3:00 pm, received email that passport is ready for pick up

    Dec 5 - Picked up passport


    When you go to pick up your passport, carry a copy of dropbox confirmation letter and copy of government issued id card with your signature and passport number written on it. They return all the documents with the passport i.e. copy of I-797 A and your photograph. 


    If your case is of H1 Renewal with a direct FTE company, just go for dropbox. No Hassle Process. 


    Takes upto 5 days to get everything done, but no fingerprinting, no interview, nothing. 


    Dont worry about "Admin Processing" status, they show that status when they are processing your application, does not necessarily mean 221(g).
