  1. We ended up going to India for stamping. Everything went well. Got the stamping done without any issues.
  2. I recently applied for H4-EAD and it is currently under process. I have a valid H-4 visa stamp valid for next 2 years. My spouse is currently is on H1B and has an approved I-140. We were planning for a short 5 day trip outside of USA. Will travelling outside of USA cause any delays/issues with respect to EAD processing (considering that I will have a new I-94 when I reenter)? Thank you.
  3. Hello all, First of all, thank you for taking time to read my post and for willing to chime in. I am currently on H1B visa with approved I-140. I recently received approval for H1B extension for which I was planning to go to Canada/Mexico for stamping. My 1st H1B stamping was done in India, then my previous H1B extension stamping was done in Mexico couple of years ago. This will be my third time going for H1B (extension) stamping. I am getting married in a couple of weeks here in USA. My fiancee is currently on F1 visa. Her F1 visa stamping in passport is expired but her i-20 is currently valid (as she extended her i-20). After marriage, she is planning to change her status for H4 and also apply for EAD. Considering the long processing times for H4 and EAD approval, she was planning to go to Canada or Mexico to get H4 visa stamped on her passport. We prefer having H4 visa stamping done rather than apply for change of status (due to some other travel plans for later this year). We were planning to do my H1B extension stamping and her fresh h4 visa stamp together. Is it advisable to go for H4 visa stamping in Canada or Mexico instead of home country (India). We read on the internet that first time stamping is better to be done in home country and as she is applying for H4 for the first time. We are not sure if is risky to go to Canada or Mexico in our situation. Thank you and Please Advise. Uday
  4. Hello All, I have a question regarding the validity of H1B. I changed jobs in November of 2013 and my H1B transfer was approved without any issues. The I-797A stated the H1B validity dates - from 01/09/2014 to 10/06/2016. The Form I-94 that came with I-797A also has the same dates for my H1B validity. The only issue is that, it adds up to more than 6 years of H1B. My H1B started in November of 2008. The only time I was not on H1B was when I got laid off in 2011 and I changed my status to B1 for about 4 months. So do I have a valid H1B until 2016? Any help is highly appreciated. Thanks.
  5. I am in the same boat. My LCA is pending. My attorney still sent in the H1B application without LCA approval. I also am eager to know what happened in your case? Did USCIS accept or reject your application?
