    Blue 221g TAL check Ottawa

    Hi All, I have attended h1-b visa interview on july 3 and was given blue 221g form. VO has asked my resume and said they have to do admin processing which is done in Washington DC. I have been checking my status CEAC website and it is showing "NO STATUS" ever since my visa interview. Is this normal??? I have send out an email to ottawa consulate and they said "DO NOT contact the U.S. Visa Service website, they cannot provide any status updates regarding your case". Its been more than 3 weeks so far, i didnt recieve any email or update on my admin processing or any update on CEAC website. Any advise or suggestions are very much appreciated.

    h1b petition before graduation

    Thank you for your reply. I have been working with this firm ( not consultancy, an american software company) since last year augest 2011. i have worked in software industry for nearly 2 years ( in my previous 27 months opt) and i am about to complete my master degree in Computer science. In similar cases, people suggesting that,i can apply for H1B, if you have a letter from your university saying that i have met/ or going to meet all requirements for graduation before october 1. i am confused!!!.. can any one help Plz...
  9. Answer to your question would be "Yes". No matter what the outcome of your H1B application, you have to maintain your F1 status until H1B status activates. Unless, if you have requested a different "Activation date"( in some cases, applicant can request a specific activation date other than oct 1). I hope this Answers your question. Cheers

I will be graduating with masters degree in computer science in the end of september( i am left with final project). But i cannot have opt because i have used already used my opt earlier. Now i have a job and i have to negotiate with my employer to apply for h1b. So my question would be Can i apply for h1b before graduation, and request a start date on october 1st. ? If yes, what is the process for it. if no what are my options. Thanks
