  1. I have diploma degree and worked for 13 years on H1B and filed GC in EB3 in 2007. Now I am completing bachelors next month. Can I upgrade to EB2? Or I need to gain work experience for certain years before I file to EB2.

    Calling all Calgary CA 221Gs in 2016

    Is your occupation falling in TAL List?

    Calling all 221g in Ottawa

    As per my digging, i found TAL list occupation are main reasons., On top of that, sometime technical issues with DS 160 form. example.. you schedule interview in Vancouver and appear in Calgory. Or.. EVC model where they need more verification.

    H1B Stamping 3rd time at Toronto

    do you know for how long DS160 stay valid after submission? i..e after submitting it, can you really attend interview after 2-3 months? Can't find information anywhere on line. Some people said, as long as details are not changed you should be fine. The only concern is we do mention US travel back date in that form. If you schedule your appointment later, that date will not match. thoughts?

  7. After submitting DS 160 form, within how many days i have to appear for Interview? For example, I submitted in June and got application number with the barcode. I already took a date in July but now i m thinking to go somewhere in August. Will DS 160 still be valid? Within how many days it expires?

    Question about DS-160 and appointment

    After submitting DS 160, within how many days you have to attend the interview? Is it ok to attend after 3 months after submitting DS 160 form?
  9. Dates are update everyday around 11 a.m for canada. Today, entire August and September is open for Vancouver. Or you just keep refreshing every hour. You will find something.
  10. what happened to your case? did you get visa after all?
  11. Did you check your DS 160 form? As per this letter it says some information is missing in your form. You can also retrieve your DS 160 form from your previous stamping. Just compare them side by side to check what is missing.
  12. I am going at the same time. Send me an email at **************@gmail.com

    H1B Stamping 3rd time at Toronto

    Well, I already did enough research before I posted my comment here. There reason why I am asking here is because they may be doing randomly on some cases. For India, they officially announced it and I know that. Also, when i went for stamping to Vancouver last time (2 years) ago, they told one candidate in front me that your interview is waived as soon as she submitted her document and provided her fingerprint. Not sure what was her case, but she was there for her visa renewal. Thanks for your wise advise though.

    H1B Rental Income

    Can H1B rent a property and collect rental income via Property Management companies? I know IRS doesn't really care if you file tax returns properly. But can this create an issue in your GC interview? Once again there will be no active participation from H1B candidate as a Properly Management company will do all work. But yes, at some point you have to involve in making decisions. I found similar question/post here but no one answered the question. http://forum.murthy.com/index.php?/topic/22379-h1b-rental-property-passive-income/?hl=%2Brental+%2Bincome

    H1B Stamping 3rd time at Toronto

    I am in the same situation with the same question. I am planning to go for the 4th time in Vancouver. Same employer. No consultant/client model. Out of my total 5 stamping, 1st one was done in India. What is your interview date? I will post my answer here if I come to know from other posts.

    Dropebox in Canada?

    I know dropbox system is only available in India but has anyone heard interview getting waived recently? When i went for last stamping in Vancouver, one girl's interview was literally waived and she was asked to collect her passport in 2-3 days. Didn't get chance to ask her more details about her visa types but i felt like it was dropbox system.
  19. Hi My H1B visa approved on 6th Feb on Thursday in Vancouver. Still no update from Loomis about passport pick up. Monday was holiday in Canada but not for US emabassy or federal Canada. so.. today is 4th day and i dont see any update. I am planning to fly india on thursday. My travel in jeopardy now. :( Is anyone facing same issue in Vancouver? -Jay
  20. Sorry folks for replying late as I was in rush at that time. Yes, I got my passport at last moment and flew India from US very next day. :) So, my interview was on Thursday. Monday was Canada Holiday. I got email for processing status from Loomis on Tuesday night 1.30 a.m (Early wednesday). As everyone posted, do not wait and go directly to Loomis. I did same. I picked my passport and rushed to Airport at 10.00. Took next flight to US at 1.40 p.m. Everything was in Plan. Thanks everyone for sharing your experiences. This really helps to understand the process and making plans in the situations like mine.
  21. Did you get passport? I had same day appointment in Vancouver. No update yet.. :(
