  1. Hi, Currently I'm working for Employer B from Oct 2016 and I have i140 approved from this employer. Prior to this I worked for Employer A, who filed my petition on In House project. I didn't had any issues while extensions or stamping. Next month my current employer is filing for H1B Extension, is there any chances of getting NOIR in this case? If Yes, what action should I take? Appreciate your guidance!

    Visitors Visa - stamping concerns

    Hi My parents are planning to visit US in couple months. This is their first time visit. My concern is....my father original name was printed in his passport which is OK but his alias name was printed in my passport and in all my school/college certificates. Does the name difference create issue while stamping? coz i'm sending supporting documents. or does he need any affidavit with his original name and alias name so that he can submit? Please advise

    H4 - Dropbox questions

    Hi, I'm on H1B and my petition got extended this year and so for my spouse. I received following docs, Doc 1 - original I-797 (I129 petition for a nonimmigrant worker) for H1B Class Doc 2 - original I-797 (I539 application to extend nonimmigrant status) for H4 class She is in India right now and eligible for drop box interview waiver program (PFA). My questions are 1. As mentioned in the attachment, IWP is asking only the copy of primary applicants i797 and Visa Copy. Do I need to drop Doc 1 or Doc 2 or both? originals or photocopy? Its already mentioned photocopy in the attachment but just need confirmation because I checked with my employer and he was not sure. 2. Where do I drop these docs? OFC center or consulate center? 3. I know documents needs to drop in 'drop box' package and seal the package. In consulate/OFC will be any separate package for each applicant? Will be any one assist in consulate/OFC while drop in case of any issues?

    H1 B - Transfer

    Hi, My question is regarding H1 B transfer My current employer applied for H1B extension under premium processing and the petition is still under process. For some reason I would like to transfer my H1 B to another employer, is it possible? If Yes, what are the risks in it? I understand that If I transfer then my new employer has to re-initiate the extension process but what are the risks in it? My Visa extension will be successful? Please advise. Thanks in advance.

    H1 B extension - Stamping

    Hi, I'm from Hyderabad, India and currently I live in Minnesota, US. My employer applied my H1 B extension and still under process. I hope my petition will be approved by end of this month. Once petition is approved, I'm planning to visit Hyderabad but my only concern is stamping. I believe it is not possible to get US visa stamp (like H1B) inside the US. I'm planning to get my Visa stamping before i visit to Hyderabad. So please advise what would be the best option. Thank you!!

    Visa Stamping

    Hi, A month ago I planned to go Mumbai consulate for stamping, so I submitted DS 160 with consulate as Mumbai. But now I had to go to Hyderabad consulate for some reasons. Is it OK to visit Hyderabad embassy without changing (I'm not sure we can change or not) or creating new DS160 with consulate as Hyderabad? Please help. Thanks in advance.
