    H1b transfer and extension related

    Thank you for the response, can you please explain me the scenario for "exit and reenter after stamping", do you mean to say if i leave the country. I do not have stamping with my current employer too. I have stamping with one of my previous employers as i haven't left the country in last 6 years.

My current employer will not file in premium no matter what, he's an dictator and I should curse myself to be in this situation being with him until this stage of my extension.

    H1b transfer and extension related

    Hi All, Can you please give advice for my below situation: I am currently on H1b with my current employer expiring on 10/23/2019 working at client's place in Maryland. Client offered me full-time and initiated H1-b transfer in premium and we got a specialty occupation RFE (they used 15-1199 SOC Code with Automation Test Engineer title) and RFE response date is 9/23/2019 and law office will respond only in mid September for RFE. My current employer is ready to apply extension, but only in normal processing. He may file it in a day or two in normal processing. My client is asking if i can come on their W2 now and asking my employer to not file the extension now, as i can legally work for them on receipt now because client is saying that my H1-b transfer decision will come first as it is premium processing. If my employer files extension petition and also approved after my transfer petition - they are saying that client petition will be void and i have to go back to my current employer as latest I-94 would be valid always; again they have to file one more transfer petition for me. Is this really true? I am thinking that I can continue with my full time opportunity even though the I-94 is not the latest, please advice. My plan is to apply for the extension also just to be on the safer side as the client petition got RFE and my current employer will not file in normal processing at any cost - what would you suggest in this case. We also have an option to request my employer to withdraw his petition after my client petition got approved, but it will be out of our control by that time. Thanks,
  4. Hello All, I am currently with a sub vendor on H1-b expiring on 10/23/2019, working at client's location. Client offered me full time and started the H1-b transfer application and we got a RFE for specialty occupation. We are currently making the response ready for RFE and I have only 3 months left now in my current H1-b. My current employer wouldn't apply in premium at any cost (even if i am willing to pay the money as well) and normal processing is the only option left for me and it would take at least 3 months or more. I would like to know at this situation, Can I apply for extension petition with my employer in parallel for the same job and same work site location while my client transfer H1-b petition is in progress. Please advice. Thank you in advance. Regards.

    I140 portability clarification

    Hi All, I have my I140 approved in EB3 (PD Jan 2011) with previous employer. My current employer filed a new I-140 using previous PD in EB2, it is normal filing and in progress and may take 2 more months from now. I have another full time opportunity now which requires to transfer my H1 again and they are ready to sponsor my GC. So, if I wait until my current I-140 is approved in EB2 with also porting the previous date. And later move to new company, will they again have to do the porting from EB2 to EB3 using 2011 PD or just file in EB2 if my current I-140 approves in EB2 with 2011 date? Basically, I would like to know if it is worth waiting for my current I-140 to approve and to convert to Premium? I mean if my future employer has to anyhow redo the porting from EB3 to EB2, can I go with the new opportunity? Please advise. Thanks.

    H-4 EAD Rule Approved Question

  7. Hi All, I was on L1 visa till Mar 2013 and currently in India. I have got my H1B stamping last week with a new employer. I would like to sponsor visitor visa for my parents based on my H1B. I may travel on H1B in 2 months from now and would like to take my parents with me after processing their visitor visa. I do not have US paystubs for last 2 months, will this be a hurdle for my parents' visitor visa? Also Do I need to have employment letter from new employer? I can request for it, but they may give with future date as I am not on their board yet. Will this be a problem. Can you please guide if I can sponsor their visitor visas now or I can only do after I go back to US on H1B? Please advise. Thanks, Sundeep

    Am i cap exempt?

    Yes. that is true. I am also on same boat and we can be cap exempted to 6 years from the year of petition. So in your case, do you have your original petition notice from 2008 or only the receipt number? we may need the original petition. Seniors, Can anyone please confirm that we can proceed for cap exemption if we have only the receipt number? or do we need original petition notice?

    H1 B due for expiration and visiting India

    Yes, when you are entering before your visa expiry, you need not go for stamping. You need to show both approval notices and you will get new I94 based on that. All the very best.
