    Visa Bulletin

    Hello attorney, I'm eligible to file I-485 as my PD is prior to application acceptance date. My question is, can we travel out of country after filing I-485 (using my existing H1B visa) and re-enter with valid H1B visa stamping? Do I need to be in USA for filing I-485? Thanks in advance!

    H1B Extension validity start date

    here my concern is not about approval date. extensions validity start date.
  3. This morning I got my H1B extension approval notice. In the approval email notification they mentioned the start validity date as 04/13. But, my original H1B expired on 12/23 and I have filed for H1B extension in last October (10/02/2014 is the receipt date). So, there is gap from 12/23 to 04/12. Would it be a problem? I have checked with my employer and they told me that I wont be a problem. Any idea?

    221g Chennai Blue Slip

    Passport submitted on 6th January 2014. 2nd Status Update on 7th January 2014, was still showing "Admin Processing". 3rd Status Update on 8th January 2014, status changed to "Issued". Picked up the passport on 9th January 2014. All the best for the folks who have been waiting for ending of their 221g nightmare.

    221g Chennai Blue Slip

    @ Savi19, I'm not from Bangalore. I didn't get any call from US consulate. I got an email (from ustraveldocs) saying that the documents were picked up from consulate and ready for pickup as I have chosen Chennai OFC as my documents delivery point. So, i went there on same day and collected my documents. I have submitted my passport today at Chennai OFC. I hope they will make a decision soon and issue VISA.

    221g Chennai Blue Slip

    Here my 221g Journey: I have attended my H1B (first time H1B) interview at Chennai consulate and got 221g blue form. Here is the timeline detail: Mine is EVC model. 11/25/2013 - OFC appointment 11/26/2013 - VISA interview (Issued 221g blue - asked one additional document from employer and AAP ticked, VO kept all my original documents except educational documents and returned passport). 12/9/2013 - Submitted the documents along with passport. 12/13/2013 - Passport returned with another 221g blue sheet (just ticked AAP and mentioned case number (no case number on initial 221g blue form) ). 01/02/2014 - Sent an email to support-india@ustraveldocs.com to request case status. 01/03/2014 - They have returned all my original documents and 221g documents. Issued another 221g blue sheet requesting submit the passport. I will be submitting my passport on 01/06/2014. I hope they won't take too long to make final decision on my case (CEAC site still showing my case status as "Administrative Processing).
