    H1b stamping 221g please advise

    Consulate contacted me 45 days after the interview to submit the documents. I have emailed the Consulate the original petition (that has the old client details) and supporting documents such as. Attorney letter why amendment is not needed, Google maps. I have not heard back anything after that. 1. When emailing the documents, since the H1B packet was more than 200 MB, my gmail automatically added it as google drive link. The rest of the documents are attached in pdf. Is it normal that google drive link be sent to the consulate. 2. Is my case a complicated one to adjudicate visa in the sense does Consulate need more time than normal to verify since my petition client is different from my current client. Note I have emailed the end client letter as well contract between employer and middle vendor as those were also asked for. 3. Is there a chance Consulate would come back asking me to submit amended petition in spite of the supporting letters and documents that were emailed.

    visa stamping got 221g in Chennai

    Hi Lakshma19 Based on what happened to me, you will be contacted for documentation to be submitted once Consulate does its first round of admin processing. Also for checking the status try case number in this format 2019XXX XXX XXXX Either case number or DS160 confirmation number can be used for checking the status.
  3. My H1b visa is under admin processing (given 221g blue slip). The client in my USCIS I129 petition is different from the one I am working with currently. The petition has my previous client details. Also my previous project was in EC model and current one is in EVC model. Since my new (current) client location is within the same MSA as previous client, my company/attorney told it is not required to file an amended petition. Please note my salary and job duties are same as with my previous client. Before going to the visa interview, my attorney gave me detailed letter addressing the Consulate and as well as gave supporting documentation explaining why an amended petition was not needed which I can give to the visa officer. During the interview, I was asked only 5 questions : i) petitioner's name, ii) client name, iii) project details, iv) salary and v) if I have a middle vendor. I told the current details regarding - client , project and the name of the middle vendor. No other question or document was asked for. The VO gave me a blue slip after talking to another officer. She also returned the passport. When I asked the VO officer if she would like to take a look at the attorney's letter of explanation, the VO officer told she does not need any document at this time and that I will be contacted if any document is needed. It has been 1 month since I have attended the interview and none of us - employer, middle vendor, client or I were contacted so far. Please let me know - 1) If mine falls under the complex case category with regards to verification and if so how long it would take for the verification to complete. 2) Since the visa officer did not take any documents from me (like the employer letter, vendor letter, client letter), how will the Consulate know whom to contact for verification. 3) Is there anything my attorney can do like emailing the letter of explanation to the consulate. I am just seeing if there is any way we can provide details in writing since all I was asked were the 5 questions mentioned above and no documents taken from me.

    Son going for H4 interview

    My husband is traveling first and will be completing his stamping. My son and I are traveling later. Depending upon my son's summer school activities we both may delay our trip even further. Please advise.

    Case status not changed

    Prabhu, Shay19 have you received your final decision yet. please update.
  9. Anshul, based on my own experience, it is possible that the employer has received notification that your petition has been approved. They must be waiting for the hard copy to be mailed from US attorney office. But also consider advise from others as well.

    Case status not changed

    I'm still waiting. My case status still shows "Request for Additional Evidence Notice Was Mailed". Sure will let you know if any change in status. Between, my case's Next Steps states "We will review your response to our request and mail you our decision." Not sure whether to assume the above as acknowledgment from USCIS that they have received the evidences. Please let me know if your status changes to either "RFE Review phase" or "Approved (Final decision).
  11. My H1b PP COS received RFE and my employer's attorney seems to have submitted the evidences last week. I am guessing last week because my attorney mentioned a couple of days back that I may get the approval by mid next week. My Case status continues to show Request for Additional Evidence Notice Was Mailed. I am expecting the status should by now be either Request for Evidence Respond Review or Initial Review. It is important for me to get the approval next week itself, hence the tension. Can someone who has got their approval submitting response to RFE after the uscis website change (in Nov) please share their experience. Did the status change to approved directly from Request for Additional Evidence Notice Was Mailed.

    H4 to H1 RFE

    Thanks for your reply. I am not aware of all the RFE details. There was one doc related to my existing H4 that my attorney had asked which I have provided to them.

    H4 to H1 RFE

    Hi My first-time H1B got approved this year. It was filed as Consular processing. I was working in India and came to US on H4 this summer. My H1 employer decided to do change of status from H4 to H1 of the previously approved H1 petition. The COS application got RFE from uscis and the company's attorney is working on it. Can you please answer the following questions. 1) If I need to go back to India before the COS result is known or I go back after the COS is denied (just in case), is it true I'll be able to attend visa interview using the previously approved H1 CP petition. 2) If I come to know my COS is denied before I go back to India, will any other employer be able to transfer my H1b CP petition that was previously approved. Thanks

    H4 to H1 when H4 extension is pending

    My husband's attorney says it is not possible to withdraw my H4 application alone since it includes my son's name also as one of the H4 applicants. Please let me know if that is correct. Any option for us?

    H4 to H1 when H4 extension is pending

    My H4 was filed as normal processing on Sep 16 with H4 start date as Sep 27. My H1 employer filed H4 to H1 COS on Sep 24 in premium with start date as Oct 1. The COS is an amendment of the previously approved Consular Processing H1b petition. 1) Please let me know if I can start work in H1 immediately once H1 comes through and while H4 is pending. 2) Please let me know if it would be fine if I can ask for withdrawal of my H4 application after I get the H1 COS approval.
