    H4 - H1 - H4

    Hi, My spouse got her h4 stamped in feb 2013 (valid until april 29th 2015). She came to USA and found an employer and moved from h4 to h1 (h1 I797 valid from Oct 1st 2013 to sep 2016) We went to india in Dec 2014 and she had to attend h1 stamping. she got 221g and there is no update on the case till now from consulate. she is now planning to come back on h4. My question is does she need to go for visa stamping if she wants come to USA on H4? or could she return with h4 stamping which is in her passport stamped in Feb 2013 ???? Please let me know your suggestions

    H1b Ammendment Question

    Hi, My current h1b is valid till oct 2016. I changed my client and my employer is going to file for an h1b amendment this week in premium. I have booked my tickets to go to India in Dec 6th. I would like to book an appointment at consulate in India and i am not sure if i can book with my current 1797 ( EAC number and I94 number) as i have to fill in DS160. My question is if my h1b amendment gets approved do i get new 1797 ?? does it have new EAC number and new I94 ??? Thanks in advance

  7. I have been following murthy forum since last 3 months and now it is time to share my experience on Sep 17th. we were three (we all met thru murthy forum) and we had motel near aiport. we reached vancouver by 3:00 PM on Sep 16th. Port of entry to canada was smooth. The officer just asked purpose of visit to canada and i replied that i have appointment at consulate for h1b extension. Next day my appointment was at 9:30AM. Me and other 2 friends reached consulate by 7:45 AM and they were already people waiting in line ( 4 h1bs in the line). We are asked to come back at 8:30 AM as our appointments was at 9:30 AM. So we came back at 8:30 AM. No backpacks were allowed, there is small locker for cell phones, keys etc. wallets can be taken in to consulate. we waited in line for about 60 minutes to go thru security screening. In the second floor they take your DS160 confirmation and passport and I797 and asked us to wait and after 40 minutes. They gave our passports and DS160 with some number written on it and a token number. For one of my friend NO PIMS was on DS160 confirmation. Then we had to go to 20th floor where they take 10 finger prints in counter 3, Counter 4,5,6 were actually visa interview counters. Visa Interview------ Back ground: Masters in US. EC model, Changed employer 4 months back, No client letter as my client doesnt provide any letters. 1) whom do you work for? xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 2) how long are you working with this employer? 4 months 3) what do you do for them? xxxxx admin 4)when did you graduate? 2009 5) Have you been working in the states since 2009?yes 6) for which company did you work in the past? xxxxxxxxxx 7)Do you have a client? xxxxxxxx company 8)where is it located? xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx city Then VO said to place my left four fingers on the scanner? and was typing for a minute and finally said your VISA is approved and gave me document to check for waybill number. Similar question were asked to rest of the guys, but everyone were approved. except me everyone else was in EVC. and most of them were asked about client letters and they all had client letters ( i was lucky as i did not had the letter) and they were asked questions like 9) do you any problems with your employer? 10) do your company ever bench you? Suggestion: Be confident, Interview last only a minute or two. I probably had 500 documents in file but VO did not even ask for single document.

    DS160 photo Upload

    ya it didnt ask for photo. but in the confirmation page. I got something like Photo Archived. Please bring photo to consulate. I verified this with consulate office in vancouver. They said i can just bring photos if there is any issue with photos. Thanks naveeena08 for your reply

    It is about have you made travel plans to US and not canada. Like once you get visa when are you planning to enter USA and how long do you intend to stay (this usually your h1b period)

    Changing Employer

    I have changed my employer 3 months back but working for same client. Has any one who attended visa interview have been in this postion? What is best approach to answer this question?
  14. Even my salary is double LCA amount. But my I129 has the correct value. I dont think that should be problem as long as employer pays more than or equal to value in the LCA.

    Canada Visa stamping questions?

    Yes you can have Vistiing US consulate for visa stamping as purpose. You send the packer to LA or newyork depending on where you stay and i am not sure about detroit. I applied thru mail to LA and got it back after 35 days. Alternatively you can go inperson to newyork or LA and get it two or three days.
