Hello Jai,My H1B visa stamped in July 11th 2007, Valid from 10/01/2007 to 08/31/2010 (MM/DD/YYYY). I never being traveled to US with this stamped petition due to some unavoidable past conditions.Please suggest if I can reuse this old petition for Quota exempt H1B filing through any other employer ?Thanks,Vijay
I joined company B on H1B Receipt # on 10th March - received RFE , they are going to reply in sometime.
Now I have another good offer from Company C which I don't want to miss ( my last H1B petition was approved till OCT- 2018, now they revoked it ) , Also have valid I-94 - no gap in employment/proper paychecks.
1) If company C file Bridge petition , Can I join them immediately on the basis of their receipt nr # ?
2) If I have joined C with H1B receipt , if company B petition withdraw or Revoked - will it impact company C petition ?
Please let me know
I received RFE for education evaluation on H1b amendment/Extension . I am MBA and having 8 + years of IT experience . I am working as Quality analyst . They have requested below information apart from education evaluation
Why the work has to be performed who holds bachelor degree in speciality occupation or equivalent
Why Employee's formal education is related to position
Status change from H4 to H1b - Previously i was on H1b until Sep 2016.
- Can i start working at Client location with H1b receipt without Approval ? - Approval decision Pending - No Premium processing after April 3, 2017
- If H1b petition rejected - I will stop working, will be back to H4 status automatically. Right?
Appreciate your answers on above questions.
This question has been asked several times, but because of recent law changes I am unsure.
Here's my situation:
Originally from India and H1B filed in India by company A in 2015, got picked up in lottery and approved i797. Left the company in 2015 and started higher education in 2015 on F1. Never used the H1 or even got it on passport.
Currently finished education and working on OPT.
New employer in USA is willing to file H1B.
Would I have to go through lottery again?
Need urgent help as this is my first and only chance.
Thank you very much.
This is Nilay from India. I am applying for US Visa and while filling up the form I got confused with the same question. Is your mother in US? What does this question mean? Presently she in US on Tourist Visa and will be back by the end of February. So what should I write, Yes or No?
You are out of status. Find a new employer and apply for cap exempt H1B petition. University is not a grocery shop where one can go any day to get entry. They have admission deadlines and specific intakes in a year.
There are instances where H1B beneficiaries have returned to US with a H1B amendment petition pending. You can see some posts in this forum related to that. If at POE immigration officer decides to scrutinize your H1B documents thoroughly you risk being denied entry on H1B. However to enter on H4 you need a valid H4 visa and a copy of your spouse's I797.
