    H1B Visa stamp while amendment is in progress

    I checked with my attorney and they said I can do the stamping based on old approved petition. They suggested to take the receipt notice of amendment. I am qualified for drop box this time.
  2. Hi All, i have an H1B extension approved till Aug 2021. We applied for a amendment to add a new location recently. I work with a consulting firm and travel to customer location 1-2 times each month. The Amendment is still in progress. I would like to visit India, however I need to attend stamping as my current stamping is expired. Can someone please suggest if its OK to go for Visa stamping in India while H1B amendment is in progress. Did someone did that recently? Thanks

    Travel to Kuwait while on H1B?

    Thanks for the answer. This is what I see when i google: Most commonly, a security screening is triggered by nationality, country of citizenship, countries you have visited in the past, and your field of study or expertise. Foreign nationals from the following countries are affected by the security clearance process: Afghanistan, Algeria, Bahrain, Cuba, Djibouti, Egypt, Eritrea, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Malaysia, Morocco, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen. Other countries and criteria may be added to the above list without notice Does it means a security screening is needed if we visit kuwait next time when we apply for a visa/renewal/stamping? Thanks Kamal

    Travel to Kuwait while on H1B?

    I would like to know Is it advisable to travel to Kuwait for business work for 8-10 weeks. Currently I am on H1B and my employer willing to send me to Kuwait for one customer. Is it going to create issues in US immigration at the port of entry. I need to also go to my home country after/before Kuwait for Visa stamping.Thanks in Advance!
  5. Which color Ink should be used to sign the H4 EAD (I765) Application form? The Form on the top says Type or Print in Black Ink, However the other forms I signed e.g. I-539 my attorney asked me to use Blue Ink.

    H1/H4 extension together with H4 EAD - Premium processing

    Shall i write concurrent filing in that section, that what is suggested in another thread or shall i leave it completely blank? I know this could be a stupid question but don't want to take a chance and hence asked. Note: H1/H4 extension and H4 EAD will be filed together in premium, Thanks in advance.
  8. I do have a question regarding I-765 filing. (We are planning to file H1/H4 and H4 EAD renewal all together in premium processing) In the EAD Application (I-765) there was a question (#18): "(c)(26) Eligibility Category. If you entered the eligibility category (c)(26) in Question 16 above, please provide the receipt number of your H-1B principal spouse's most recent Form I-797 Notice of Approval for Form I-129." 1. Since I do not have the new receipt number for my H1 extension application, Should I give the old H1 B approval receipt number? If I give the old receipt number, will the EAD be renewed only until Sep2, 2018 (Based on the old H1B approval notice)? We currently H4 EAD which is valid until Sep 2nd, 2018. 2. In the same form Q10 asked for A# or I 94 #. Since we already have an EAD shall we mention the A# (USCIS#) mentioned on EAD. Thanks in Advance!

  10. Currently I am in US on L1B which is expiring this September. I do have a H1B petition which was approved in 2015 and valid till Sept 2018 with same employer. I have never stamped the H1B in passport. Now If I apply for L1B extension will it affect my H1B in any way. I am trying to avoid stamping at this time as my wife is working on L2 EAD. Although I have I140, so my wife can get H4 EAD, but need to time the conversion of L2 EAD to H4 EAD as it might take up to 90 days. Please suggest if it is safe to take L1 extension or I should go for H1 stamp.

    H1B - Transfer

    Hi Experts, I applied for H1B through Employer B in April 2013, while I was in USA working with Employer A on L1B. At the time when I applied H1B we claim only 16 months (what ever was left over after using L1B). The H1B petition is approved now. In the meanwhile I left USA in Sept 2013 and never entered USA to make sure my immigration clock is reset and I can claim full 5 years on L1B or 6 years in case I get a H1B. I do have few questions: 1. Can I ask my current employer to use this petition and file a Cap exempt H1B for me. I am not planning to work with Employer B who applied this petition for me. 2. When my current employer applies H1B can he claim whole 6 years, due to the fact that I will be completing one full year outside USA by early Sept 2014. Thanks for your advice.

    H1b validity

    I did applied H1B through employer A in 2013, the petition was denied in Sept 2013, and we went with MTR. The case was re-opened and approved today. Initially the H1 was applied for 16 months (since I already spent 4 year and 8 months on L1B with another employer B) specifically from 01-Oct-2013 till Jan-2015. I left USA post H1 Denial (Sept 2013) and came to Canada. Now by the time the H1 petition is approved its very close to Jan 2015. Can someone tell me till when the new H1 will be valid, whether it will be valid till Jan 2015, or they will count the 16 months from today and approve it till Nov 2015.
