  1. Hi, I have an approved I-140 in EB3 with my current employer. It has been more than 180 days that i have got my I-140. Now i wanted to change the employer so that i can port in for EB2. I have following questions: 1. I am currently in 6th year of my H1B and my current H1 is valid until March 2017. When the new employer files H1 transfer, will i get the H1B Until March 2017 ? or since that i have approved I-140, i will be getting 3 years? 2. If i dont get H1B for 3 years during the transfer, can i use my I-140 for extension with the new company? provided my current employer doesn't revoke my I-140. Appreciate your help !!! Thanks, Sreenivas
  2. Hi, Me and my wife attended visa interview at chennai. VO gave us 221g, asking me to send some additional documents via email. I have sent those documents and this week i have got another 221g with "Please submit your passport at your nearest Visa Application Center" check box checked. i dont know whether i can submit my wife's passport also along with mine, so i have called UStravel docs chennai customer care asking about my wife's passport submission. They have asked me to send an email to support-india@ustraveldocs.com attaching both 221g's. they said they will get back to me in 24 to 48 hours. But its been 4 days, i haven't got any reply to my question. When i call them they are saying that the query has been escalated to the concern department and they are waiting for their response and they cannot comment on the time frame when i will getting a reply at this moment. Now my question is, Instead of waiting for their reply, can i go ahead and submit mine and wife's passport at VAC with the new 221g i have got? Will it create any problem if i submit the passport when a query from my side is still unanswered? Appreciate any response!! Thanks, Srinivas

    H1B Visa Transfer question

    Hi, I am on H1B visa, my I-94 is valid until 2015. Right now i am planning to move to a different employer, But everyone is asking me to join with H1B transfer reciept number. I feel that is risky and I have following questions in that context. 1. Can my current employer cancel my H1B (I-797) ? I heard that no one can cancel the H1B, they can only cancel the sponsorship by reporting USCIS stating that thay are not going to pay me as i will not be woking , is it true? 2. Assume that i move to a new employer with reciept number and my current employer cancels the sponsorship, and the h1 B transfer fails, what would be my status? should i leave the country? if not, how much time will i have to find another sponsor? I heard i will have time untill my status expires, is it true? Appreciate your responses!!! Thanks Srinivas

    Upgrading EB3 to EB2

    Hi, I have one month shortage of exprience (Bachelors degree in computers + 4 years 11months) with my previous employer in order for me to eligible for EB2. My current employer is willing to start Green card, but becuase of one month shortage they are going to apply that in EB3 category. At this time i am not willing to change the employer as i have long term cntract and the employer is also good. So is it a good idea to start the green card with my current employer in EB3 category and once the labour and I-140 is over changing to a different employer and upgrading it to EB2? if so what is the process? do i need any approvals or documents from my current employer at the time of filing EB2? Appreciate your suggestions!!! Thanks and Regards Srinivas Kedari
  10. Hi, I have mistakenly specified wrong start and end dates of my previous employment in my H1 DS160 when i went for stamping. Now my current employer is starting green card process, during the process i figured out that i have filled wrong dates in my H1 DS160. will it be a problem for my green card if the dates missmatches with DS160? Thanks and Regards Srinivas Kedari

    Successful visa stamping on June 28th @ Vancouver

    Hi, There is no end date in client letter. I don't think its a good idea to mention the end date of a project in client letter. I just metioned its an ongoing project and the VO asked me "any Estimated end date?" i said its a supporting project sir so it will go on.. then he said ok. Hope that helps!!! Thanks
  15. Hi, I have visa interview scheduled on 28th June 2013 in Vancouver. I am on EVC model. I Have all the douments including end client letter. But unfortunately, Today i was told that the project that i am working will be put on hold by this 28th due to some budget issues. They didn't tell me anything about my contract termination yet. Can i attend the visa interview with my client letter? If they give 221g on 28th and if my contract was terminated by that time, will consulate thinks that i am cheating or somthing like that? I am nervous, could anyone please provide suggestions? Thanks and Regards Srinivas Kedari

    Canada Visa Process

    1. Travel Itinerary -- Just put some tentative travel plan. 2. Invitation Letter -- You dont need to have an invitation letter from somebody. you can simply write a letter in word documnt and just mention that you will be visiting canada to spend your vacation days, you will be staying so and so hotel etc.. I did the same

  25. Hi, I have booked a visa interview at Vancouver, Canada. But i am thinking another option that is whether to go for stamping or not. Because the current interview date is September 2013. But I might have to travel India sometime on August for my marriage. So here is my scenario. 1. My Visa (with previous employer) will expire on September 30, 2013.2. I have approved I-797 form which is with Present Employer till May 20, 2015. So my question is: If i go to India in August and get married, DO i have to go for stamping? Can i apply H4 for my wife even though my visa getting expired in very next month or less than a month? Do you see any risks at port of entry or my wife getting H4 stamped? Finally, Canceling a scheduled vsa appointment gives any trouble down the line or while coming at port of entry ? Appreciate any responses!!! Thanks and Regards Srinivas Kedari
