    H1b Stamping and DUI

    Hi Raam, With the DUI, how can you travel to Canada; as they treat DUI as a felony. I thought people who have a DUI, can't travel to Canada at all; unless you get Citizenship (Indian passport to US Passport).

    I94 on new passport

    Hi, Old passport expiry date: 01/08/2019 Visa Expiry Date: 12/30/2019 I stay at Michigan, and this is regarding getting the I94 renewal on the new passport, after the I94 date on the old passport expired. When I entered last Dec 2017, the CBP officer gave the I94 date till 8-Jan-2019, as my passport is expiring on that date. Now , I have got a new passport and would like to get my I94 date renewed. I tried going to nearest airport CBP - but they said I have to go to USCIS field office to renew it. When I Called USCIS field office to have an Infopass appointment scheduled - they asked me to go to CBP office. I am confused, as I wanted to get the I94 renewed on my new passport without travelling outside country. Please advise, if there is any option to do it within USA. Thanks, Mani

    Travelling via Frankfurt with expired H1B

    If I am not wrong, you will not be able to fly via Europe (except Amsterdam) with an expired US visa. You have to fly via Arab countries. They will ask for a valid US visa if you are traveling from US. You might need a transit visa (even if you are not switching countries in Europe). Call the airlines and confirm.

    DUI and h1b extension 2018

    Though your visa is revoked, you have to file your extension when you are in US - in which case USCIS may ask for additional information about the case details. I read an article recently which said, if you are applying for extension - they are denying the extension and you need to apply for a visa in your home country (upon the new visa post medical evaluation) - you can come and apply for extension. But, in your case - you don't have enough time to get a new visa. Please consult an attorney and proceed. Also, try to file the extension in premium processing. Keep updating the status.
  8. It really depends on you. As you have to do your extension, it would be better to tell them now or at that point. Since the case is dismissed and if you have solid documentation to support the case - in my opinion there is nothing much to worry. I have had my extension in 2016 when I joined Full Time for my employer. I did mention about the incident at the time of hiring to HR, and attorney and it did go in my favor. I submitted all the documentation while they prepared the petition. Please reach out to an attorney; if you need additional clarifications.
  9. Hi ADC10, The link you have pasted did not get pasted to an actual URL. Visa revocation is an existing process that happens where the embassy will cancel the visa in case there was an arrest. Still you can continue to stay in US; but you can't use your existing visa to enter back; with which you entered last time - even if you have validity. You need to go through the medical evaluation process (depending on what you are arrested for) and upon clearing the exam and other things that VO looks - they will make a decision whether to issue the visa or not. It is better to tell the immigration attorney about it; even if you are not - they will get to know during the H1 extension.

    DUI and h1b extension 2018

    Hi, File your extension ASAP and get it approved. When you file the petition, I think it will go to RFE asking for court docs (disposition letter, probation completion etc - not sure how you can provide when the case is still open) if the case is filed. Try to reduce it to something less. DUI charges wont go off your record, it stays forever until you become a Citizen. It can be expunged depending on the state where you are. But for Immigration purposes it will always be there. Not sure of the impact of new rules. All the best.

    H1B Visa stamping at Chennai - Sep 15

    Hi Sorry, was not logging in. you can email me at the address on the profile.
  12. Hi, Please check this post and see where you are at. Based on what I read, I am thinking, if the report is good - you should see an update in a week from your last update. you can email the consulate. Did you get any notification to submit your passport?
  13. I went on the same day booking an appointment with the Apollo Hospital. The reports were sent to consulate the very next day and for me everything in 3 weeks. Refer to my detailed post.
  14. I did travel for my marriage within one year from the time incident happened; and had to go through Physician Panel and got my visa issued. Plan for 4-6 weeks timeframe.
