    H1B stamping experience on Oct 31st 2016 in Hyderabad

    Hi Kalyan, I went to stamping after 13 months of intial approval and 5 months of my amendmemt approval. as your employer said PIMS database will contain our information, but i am not sure how long will take that PIMS to get updated. Because i saw lot of people attended h1b interview and approvals on same day i attended on 31st oct. those people got their h1 approved recently and start date is 10/01/2016. I suggest take more suggestions from people and better talk to attorney of your company who will complete the paper work.
  10. Hi Everyone Here is my h1b stamping experience in hyderabad on 31st oct 2016 OFC: I have scheduled OFC (finger print) application on 30th sunday OCT 2016 at 1.00pm in Hyderabad(OFC will be open from 1pm to 4pm on sunday) and complete finger process. Consulate: I have an appointment at 12pm on 31st monday 2016. below are the question by Visa officer. 1. Whats your company name? 2. How long are you with this company? 3. Whats your designation? 4. Whats your salary? 5. Did u study in usa? 6. R u in usa for atleast a 1 month without enrolling in college and seeking H1B? VO: Your visa is approved and it will take bit longer than usual to get ready. Not asked for single document, not even I797, he just took passport. My Interview is max 30 seconds. Online status of my visa application changed as followed. On 30th Oct Sunday before OFC: No Status On 30th Oct Sunday after OFC: Ready On 31st Oct Monday after visa interview: Admin Processing On 03rd Nov Thursday around 4pm: Issued On 04th Nov Friday around 1.30pm: I received an email saying My Passport is Ready for Pickup. Tips: Carry all documents as possible. Be confident and answer clearly. Good luck for your interview.
  11. Hi I came across same situation, i went to Vancouver for H1 stamping in Dec 2013 at that time VO issued me 221G white and explained me the process how they will handle my case. he told me My documents will be sent to USCIS and they will make final decision. I went to INDIA and wait for couple of Months then i applied for Masters in XXX university and the university Issued I20. I am from went to Chennai instead of Hyd becoz my first stamping of F1 is from Hyd.(when i am the process of getting F1 i did not took any action on my H1 that means withdraw or what ever just i forgot about that and it is Admin processing). Here is my nd F1 interview details mrng 7.30 interview time Me : Good morning mam. How are you? Vo: gud how abt you me : i am also gud thanks for asking me: handovered I20,Passport thats all they she need from me Vo: So u are going to XXXX uni me: Yes mam Vo: which course me: MBA Vo: whats your Highest qualification me: XXXXXXXXXXX vo: from india OR USA me: USA from XXXXXXX uni in XXXXXXXXXXX place vo: why u want to study MBA now me: i want to establish a business in this competitive world vo: gud what business me: IT consulting Vo: Why u did MS computers instead of MBA at that time me: now a days all the payments and information was online so i need good knowledge in computers so i did computers, now i need administrative skills so i am doing MBA vo: she was typinh something and after 30 seconds approx she asked me a question You went to CANADA, why? did you move to CANADA me: No mam, i went for H1 stamping but officer told me they need some time to process my application so it went to admin processing. Vo: okay me; Yes mam Vo; Give me a min i will be back me: She took my passport and went into a room, i was very anxious and waiting off course i cant do anything more than that vo: came after 2 mins and she told sorry for the wait me: Thats fine mam vo; Okay your Visa is APPROVED and gud luck for your future me: thankyou very much mam vo: okay bye have a nice day me : you too bye Then after 2 days i collected myy passport and i got stamping for 5 years i came back to USA on F1 there is no Problem even at Port of Entry.everything was smooth and Happy Few days back I checked status about my H1 on USCIS website with my EAC number then it shows currently my case was being reviewed by USCIS, so as per my knowledge if USCIS approves my H1 then i can Applu for Change of status and change on to H1 then coming to your Questions 1. No you don't need to withdraw 2. As per my know if your H1 is under 221g its nothing but useless so when there is no status how can you transfer, you can apply a fresh H1 with different company that but anyways consult a lawyer on this 3.contact your petitioner and lawyer on this 4. Chances cannot determine it all matters about how you convince Visa officer so prepare think and prepare well for F1 interview Gud Luck..............
