  1. @wonders: Thanks for posting your experience! May I know which border have you crossed and returned to USA?
  2. Anyone planned to attend for their visa in Matamoros in mid May'2019? If so, please respond to connect to plan together.
  3. My wife is on H4 and have valid I-94 till Jan'2022 as part of extension (current visa on passport got expired). Can she visit Canada for 2 days and return back to USA by road without attending for her H4 visa in Canada?

    Emergency Travel to India on H1B

    @juighate: If your friend qualifies to attend in Mexico but don't have time to travel to Mexico, be prepared for India and keep checking as dates in various consulates in India are updating periodically. I've seen one of my colleague initially got a long waiting date in Chennai and within few days he got a date very close by in Chennai. Good Luck and sorry to hear the emergency for your friend!
  5. @smorr6: Thanks for sharing update! Good to hear that they asked to drop passport for correction, let's hope you'll get visa for the period matching with I-797 approval notice.
  6. @smorr6: Can you please update in this thread about the final outcome and approach.
  7. When you enter into USA with new visa, you will be getting I-94 based on your existing visa. Check with your employer/attorney about how to approach consulate on validity that was issued.
  8. My parents are eligible for Interview Waiver as their existing B1/B2 visa is valid till June'2019. To drop the passports and necessary documents at VFS, does the applicant only have to visit VFS location or can anyone on their behalf submit the documents/passport? Thanks in advance!!

    H1 Transfer

    No, one has to be in some immigration status legally to file for change of status. In the example you've mentioned once H1B transfer is denied with Company B and by that time if Company A revokes, you don't have a status in USA to file change of status. It is good to check with attorney about your exact situation before you take any step to avoid unnecessary problems. Good Luck!!
  11. @A4PP: When you attend for your visa you will get the visa stamped on your passport for the entire validity of I-797 whereas in port of entry you will get I-94 validity till end of your passport though you have valid visa stamped on your passport beyond the passport expiration date. FYI, recently I even got in the same manner as my H1B is valid till Jan'2022 but Passport expires Dec'2019 (soon).
  12. Today status is updated as Issued and got tracking number as it's on the way to pickup location (post office).
  13. Anyone attended for H1B visa on Feb 25, 2019 (Monday), got visa approved during interview with Visa Officer and waiting for passport? My cousin attended on Feb 25, 2019 and shows still administrative processing. I know that it shows for a day or two but as today it's 3rd day still it is administrative processing, just want to understand if anyone who attended on Feb 25, 2019 and have different status by now. Thanks in advance!!
  14. My cousin attended for his H1B visa interview today at Ottawa, Canada and got approved. Here is brief background, came for Masters 6 years back and on H1B since 3.5 years, never been out of USA so far. Got H1B extension last month and attended for visa interview today at Ottawa. Here are the questions he faced... First time H1B? Did Masters in USA? What does your employer do? What is major in Masters? Where you visited in last 5 years? What project have you done in your Masters?
