  1. You can stay until your H1B is under processing and you get some result. You can apply for B2 visa and you can stay until processing. I may be wrong since I do not know whether you can do this being in US.

    H-1B STATUS DURING A FURLOUGH

    I work full time with this organization .. Your organization's HR/immigration team will advise you. You can let us know so that it will be useful for others.
  3. Lottery next year ONLY no more lottery this year...
  4. Give old and new passport details to your immigration attorney who is doing H1B paper work. They will take care of it not you. You need to stay away. Give travel history with old passport also to them.

    H1B Transfer while Amendment and Extension in Progress

    1) Since B depends on A, if A withdraws B will be denied I guess. Best option stay with A and wait for their approval after that move to another employer.
  7. I guess you can but since your I94 expired ( I guess since you said My H1B visa got expire on Jan31,2020 ) the transfer petition will depend on your extension petition filed on Jan 17.

    H1 transfer rfe maintainance of status

    I maybe wrong but I feel you are in status since I feel your old employer submitted H1B extension before your I94 expired( I am assuming since you did not tell us) and you did not resign from old employer so legally you had a job. Your new employer petition will depend on your old employer petition since your I94 expired.

    H-1B Visa Initial Selection Process Completed

    NOPE. I may be wrong...
  15. Your employer has to do appeal not you since they are the petitioners not you. I feel Speciality Occupation RFE is about the job not your educational background. What was your job title and description?

    H1b Transfer during the current situation

    Last week, USCIS had announced that deadlines would be extended for responding to Requests for Evidence and Notices of Intent to Deny. Today, they have further clarified that this flexibility also applies to Notices of Intent to Revoke (NOIR) and Notices of Intent to Terminate (NOIT) regional investment centers, as well as appeals and motions filed on Form I-290B. If the RFE, NOID, NOIR, NOIT, or denial was issued between March 1st and May 1st, USCIS is providing an additional 60 days to submit the response or file the appeal or motion: Notice/Request/Decision Issuance Date: This flexibility applies to an RFE, NOID, NOIR, NOIT or appealable decision within AAO jurisdiction and the issuance date listed on the request, notice or decision is between March 1, 2020 and May 1, 2020, inclusive. Response Due Date: Any response to an RFE, NOID, NOIR, or NOIT received within 60 calendar days after the response due date set in the request or notice will be considered by USCIS before any action is taken. Any Form I-290B received up to 60 calendar days from the date of the decision will be considered by USCIS before it takes any action. Although this is a helpful step for many employers, visa holders, and attorneys, it does not extend filing deadlines for status expiration. If your status is expiring, you must still comply with all existing regulations and timely file your extension or change of status before your current status expires.

    Impact on H-1B status during a furlough

    You need to talk this with your employer/immigration attorney. More than 60 days is not allowed. I do not know how your employer came to that decision.

    Can I be on leave without pay on H1B visa?

    I guess on H1B you have to get paid. There is no concept of bench and not running any payroll. Talk with your employer. If you are EVC model and you have client project now and you are working for client you must get PAID. Employer cannot ask you to continue work and they will not run payroll siting virus...
