    H1b Extension on medical ground

    do you have GC labor and I-140 approved? if so ask your employer to file for H1B extension, then take 2 months break on medical grounds and resume work. if you dnt have any above, and you have to leave country , then who cares you have 60 days to leave, take medical and get well and leave.

    H1b Amendment withdrawal after approval.

    you can change clients any number of times, just make sure whichever client you choose, you have the amendment is filed.

    H1B Withdrawal

    I think 60 day will be counted when USCIS approved the request, then you get mail. But your case looks like not complicated in general ask the same employer to file again, as it is his mistake and even if you take 60 days into account. As long he files ASAP that is good for you. Not sure how your attorney/employer not kept you in loop when any action taken on you and they need your consent. anyways ask him to file ASAP.

    H1B - Crypto Mining

    Hi, I'm on H-1B status. can H1B visa holders mine crypto like BTC or ETH, as a passive income. I know that we can buy property and rent it out for passive income and report it to IRS yearly. is it same with crypto mining or it is treated as earning through self-employment (not sure whether it is self employment because im on H1B working for employer). or should I wait till I get my EAD and start company then do do mining.
  5. Hi, I'm on H1B(GC in-process), now I'm planning to start a company in INDIA, below are my questions, Is it legal for H1B holder to start a business in foreign/INDIA if it is legal, do I need to report in US tax returns if I need to report in US tax returns then what is the limit on foreign income, even if company not making any profits or if I earn any income on rental properties. Please suggest.
  6. my new employer is requesting to work on H1B receipt(as he is sure petition will be approved later), just wondering can I still keep old H1B petition and give reason to old employer as "sick leave"(say 3-4 months). And if petition with new employer doesn't approve then go back old employer. is it a possible scenario?

    DS 160 - Family Info question

    Thanks shekar11 & gopalakrishnach for your response. My actual offer letter start date from employer was april, 2015. By the time H1B approved(change of employer) and the approval notice says Oct, 2015. In this case, should I use my offer letter startdate or approval validatity dates. I guess its better to use OFFER letter start date. any suggestion?
  8. My wife(H1B holder), child (Infant US born) and me on H1B, travelling together to INDIA next month. At that point in time what should I answer for below questions, Do you have any immediate relatives, not including parents, in the United States? should I answer NO, as they are with me in INDIA? Are you traveling as part of a group or organization? My wife/child they are not attending visa interview. Question is should I enter my family members here? Present Work What should I enter in "Start Date". I'm on extension with current employer. Should I enter initial start date with employer which was 4 years back or should I enter current extension I-797 start date.
  9. My wife is on H1B(7th year) and she got extension based on approved I-140.can you please clarify below questions If she change to H4 status, later if she wants to change to H1B, does she need to go through H1B lottery or it is treated as CAP exemption. In any way will it affect approved I-140. can she apply for GC when priority date becomes current while on H4 status? or does she needs to be on H1B status to apply for GC. on H1B can a person be on maternity leave for more than 6 months.
  10. Hi, My wife planning for dropbox in Hyd for visa extension. I have below questions please clarify and any suggestions much appreciated: 1. Recently married have marriage certificate and we didn't apply for change of name. Question is while filling DS-160 or any other form, should she provide her lastname or use my lastname 2. Is it fine to say status as married and provide her lastname instead of mine. 3.or should she go by saying status as "single" and use her lastname, so that it won't lead to any further questions.. I guess consulate won't know about person's marriage. 4. Did anyone recently went for dropbox or in what scenarios consulate will call for interview. Currently she is working in E-V-C model, even first time interview was successful with same EVC model.
  11. Thanks Raavij, for your input. One question, trying to understand in what scenario at port of entry(POE) they will not allow to enter into US. one scenario obviously VISA is expired even if you have new approved I-797. one year back, in my case, I have reentered USA while H1B( change of employer) petition was in-processing and with valid old visa, Officer was saying, my new H1B petition should not be approved at the time of POE). And you are saying I can re-enter with approved I-797? can you or anybody suggest or any pointers to any other websites.
  12. Hi All, Please suggest on below question, I have a valid visa till May'2017 and recently got H1B extension till May'2020. Since there is so much ambiguity on travelling to INDIA. Do I need to go for visa interview if I travel to INDIA even if I valid visa? Can I come back to USA with old visa and with new H1B extension and also there is no change of employer. can I use drop-box in INDIA?
  13. Congrats on your visa. can you provide little more info on below questions, On finger print day, what was the process. - did you take any photographs with you. if not how much cash we need to take. if yes how many did you take. - I guess we don't have to submit documents in much advance like 4 days before the finger print day.

Previous employer was consulting company(with previous employer my visa recently expired) what should I answer for below questions who is your client/end client - My HR wants me to say - we work on several inhouse projects - just need better way to say If I say inhouse project - will they ask me to present any documentation.

  15. Hi, From Aug 31,2015, I have accepted full time position with XX company. below are some info my new XX company filed for H1B change of employer in August 2015 after I got the I797 receipt notice(not approval notice), my old employer revoked my H1B. But my new employer assured it doesn't matter if my old employer revokes old H1B as we got new I797 receipt notice. my previous valid visa from old employer expiring in Nov LAST WEEK Now due to family emergency I have traveled to INDIA in November 1st week and returning in 1 week. But before travelling my new employer attorney, has said I can travel safely as long as my new H1B is still in under process(it should not be approved while traveling, I took a risk considering current H1B processing times). can you guys know anything about this, will I run into any trouble? Please let me know if I need to carry any other documents. I did my research, based on guidelines it says at PORT of ENTRY, they will consider my OLD I94 dates to issue new I-94. my concern is how this works if my previous H1B petition is revoked, does it mean it revokes my previous I797 too or I797 is not related to H1B peition.Please suggest I'm travelling back in 3 days.
