  1. Off late, I have heard from friends and other circle that USCIS is putting petitions in RFE or denying them if the profile is of Business Analyst or contain the word "Analyst". Is it true?

    Dependants and mine I94 expires in Nov, My company processes my H1b extension and I planning to go for Premium, however if I wanted to pursue the H4 by myself, should I need to wait for the approval notice or the receipt notice would do?

    H1 Extension - Role Change

    1. While doing the H1b transfer my role was Sr. Business Analyst but the actual duties are of Business System Consultant. Now, the date to apply for H1b extension has arrived, will it be a problem if I submit a CV with role Business System Consultant? Since its an extension will they validate the role difference?
  4. A US employer X sponsored for H1 in 2014 and it got approved in Nov 2014, however when appeared for PA in Canada, it went to Admin Processsing. Later I withdrew the visa application and travelled back to India. Here in Aug, I appeared for the visa intereview and got it approved till Sep 2017. Now my current employer Y in India is willing to do H1 transfer. I am planning to stick here. Please answer my queries below. 1. If H1 transfer gets approved from Y, should I need to reappear for another visa interview? 2. Couldn't I travel with existing visa (from X) and carry the approved transferred petition? 3. In case I reappear for PA again, if by bad luck they deny the visa, will my old visa still hold good? Thanks
  5. Guys, I wanted to share my visa experience. I have filed H1 last year from company A when I was in Canada. The petition got approved and when appeared for visa interview in Toronto it went to Administrative Processing. I waited for 4 weeks and then I withdrew the visa application. Later, went to L1b (Current employer) visa and ti got denied. I had to travel back to India. After a gap of 6 months, with the same H1b petition from Company A, I scheduled a visa interview, ofcourse with new continuing offer letter and other docs. This time I got my visa approved. hurray... I had some bad experience with Company A, so I was thinking of other options, plz clarify if possible. 1. My first concern is I am not willign to travel immediately due to some personal issues. I am planning to travel in Feb/March? Will that be of any problem at port of entry or with petition? 2. My current employer is willing to sponsor H1 next year( I didnt mentiond abt H1 visa approval from company A which I eventually do). If I apply for a cap exempt petition (have some bad experience with Company A) and gets approved, should I need to go for visa interview again? If so, what is the probability of getting denied? 3. If I happened to travel to US with the approved visa and then transfer to a different employer, will that be safe? I was told that I need to submit pay stubs of company A while doing transfer process, how to tackle this situation? Thanks Cherry.
  6. Hi I have appeared for H1 visa interview in Toronto consulate and it went to Admin Processing. Eventually after a wait of 4 weeks, I had withdrawn since my Canada stay is till 28th Feb. Now, I am travelling back to India. 1. Will my H1 petition still valid? 2. If I wanted to apply a new H1 petition from a different employer, am I eligible for Cap Exempt? One of my friends say that unless I have a valid visa stamped I will not be eligible for Cap Exempt? Is that so? Plz advice. THanks!
  7. I have approved H1b petition with me, appeared for a visa interview in Toronto, it went to Admin Processing. as my stay is limited till 28th Feb, i had withdrawn the admin processing and traveling back to India. 1. Can I appear for a new visa interview in India? Though it goes to AP, I still will be in India and no issues. 2. Can I apply for a new cap exempt petition from a different employer even I don't have visa stamped? Plz advise. Thanks!
  8. I have appeared for L1 interview at Toronto Consulate on 3rd Feb and was given Green Slip.Inquiries have happened with my employer/client and today on 20th Feb, I notice the 'Status Update Date' changed to today's date but the status still remained in 'Administrative Processing'. what does this mean? Does my case still in AP or will they take few days to update the status? I have not yet received any mail from consulate too.
  9. If I (H1) and my spouse(H4) attend visa interview together and it happened that my wife got 221g yellow slip to submit her CV. As such both H1 and H4 have to go through Administrative Processing. Can I withdraw H4 alone (since 221g is issued to H4 application alone) and request them to process H1? If so, Will H1 still remain in administrative processing or a decision be made instantly? Thanks Jayanth K.
  10. Thanks Jairichi for quick and responses. You have solved many of my concerns. I have one quesiton in mind, please let know if that is feasible. Since the Admin processing is happening on H4 (spouse), can I withdraw just H4 and ask them to process H1 because they didn't say anythign about H1 visa. Is this a possible scenario? Thanks Jayanth K
  11. Recently, my case was stuck in Admin Processing in Toronto. VO took my passport and 797 original. my approved Petition had POE as Toronto and in petition, it was mentioned that I will have my visa interview in Toronto. I have my Canada visa till Feb 28th and if I didn't get any decision by then, I have to withdraw and travel back to India. I believe the 797 will be given back upon withdrawal. 1. can I book a new PA date in India with the same petition and same employer? If so, what's the probability of approval/denial? 2. Can I apply for H1 transfer to a different company and then go to PA in India? Is this scenario possible? if so, any care to be taken under such conditions. 3. Also, I have L1 petition and I am planning to go for its PA date in 3rd week of Feb. If that gets approved and I happen to travel to US. Can I apply for COS and work on H1 (considering I withdrew my H1 visa application). My attorney told its not possible and they need to apply a new H1 2016 under Cap Subject. Is that so? I heard few cases people applying for COS and start working on H1. Doesn't my case apply here? Thank You.
  12. On 7th Jan, 2015, I had a visa interview for H1 at Toronto. I and my wife both have taken the appointment. From my side, everything went smooth. Then they asked about my wife's highest qualification, hers is Master in Microbiology. For that, the VO has asked her CV. We didn't anticipated this and so couldn't show it. We insisted we have Master's degree certificate and marks list, but the VO insisted on CV. Later, she took both of our passports and gave a yellow slip. The 221g has one requirement, submit my wife's CV through email.The VO told it would take 3-4 weeks for the administrative processing to complete, I ran through few forums and I learned that for some cases the process took as much as 19 months to few weeks. I am in a confused situation, my Canada visa would expire on 28th Feb and my current employer is processing my L1. I had got my L1 docs ready all I need to do is book a PA date. Passports are with the US consulate. Update (1/13/2015) --- Received mail from Toronto FPU, ""Action on your and your husband’s applications for a nonimmigrant visa (NIV) is suspended under section 221(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), as amended, for further administrative review by the Department of State. We will inform you of the results of this additional administrative review by email as soon as it is completed. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide any additional information on the status of your visa application at this time. Thank you for your understanding and patience. U.S. Consulate General Toronto Does anyone has any idea how long could this DOS verification takes? Has anyone with similar case got their visa approved within 4 weeks... Now, my visa would expire this feb end and i have booked l1 PA in Feb 3rd week... pLease share your experiences if you have gone through similar phase... Thanks

Passports are with the US consulate. 1. Any chances of H1 approval under this context? 2. Any idea how long such cases be processed? 3. Can I withdraw the H1 adminstrative processing after 2 weeks? 4. While H1 is in administrative processing, can I book a PA date for L1 in Feb? If so, will the H1 processing has an impact on L1? I need some guidance in this context as how to proceed. Thanks
