    As your application has been refused under section 221(G)

    There is no update yet. He has submitted the passport, and its been more than 1 week and still the status shows admin processing and he did not get any email about picking up the passport.
  4. Friends, My cousin went to India for stamping and received 221(g) on dec 9th. On dec 21, he received a call to send the scanned documents for further processing. Today he received an email from embassy with below information. "Dear Applicant, This is in regards to your visa application. Please submit your passport at VAC or VFS office at the earliest for further processing of your case. As your application has been refused under 221(g) of the immigration and nationality act (INA) and you are requested to submit your passport, please log in to UStraveldocs, download the 221(g) courier submission letter and submit it along with the 221(g) refusal sheet and a copy of this email at any one of the 5 VAC or 6 VFS offices." What does this mean? does this mean the visa has been refused now? or when went to visa for the first time, he was given a 221(g) and they are referring to that in the second para? does any one had same scenario? Please help, thanks, Krishna

    H1 transfer and India travel

    Friends, My wife is having a situation. She is working as a contractor with employer A. She is ready to get a potential Full time offer. We have a long time India plan in November. Are the below statements accurate? - If her H1 transfer is initiated, she cannot come back with the old Visa, she needs to get new stamping as it is employer change. - She cannot travel with her h1 transfer in progress with visa on employer A. - The only option available is to go to india with H1 on employer A, come back and start the process? Thanks in advance.
  6. Hi, My friend is having a particular situation. She applied H1, and got it approved for October 1st of 2016. Her marriage is set in Nov, but her husband is asking her to come over to US on H4 and then change the status to H1. Is this possible? She is never been to US before, so no stamping on her passport till now, so if she goes for H4 stamping, does her valid H1 is revoked/invalid? Can she re-initiate her H1 once she reaches US? Thank you everyone in advance.

    F1-H1 change visa stamping

    @Rahul412, @Pontevecchio, thank you guys for your replies. that CPT is legal. He has applied his H1 with this MS degree. His COS is already updated in the university, so I guess it might not be a problem. Will there be any other issues which I am foreseeing ?

    F1-H1 change visa stamping

    Friends, My friend is in a situation where he applied 2 h-1's form FYI 2016, one from his current employer (CPT) and one from another company (friend's) He got his H1 picked from his friend's company. (Hope the H1 is approved) when is the earliest he can go for visa stamp? Does he need to move to his new employer to go for stamping? I heard that one can go to visa stamp with COS but can return only after Sept 21st. Is that correct?

    is LCA required for port of entry

    friends, I am travelling to India this weekend and returning next week in emergency. I have my visa stamped from client A, and I moved to client B in the same location (same zip code, but different client). Would like to know if LCA needs to be applied and does port of entry ask about LCA? Please help as this is emergency. thank you
  11. Friends, I have a situation here. I have a valid H1 visa stamped from canada with client A. I moved to client B in the same location. (LCA not applied yet). I have India travel plan in emergency. Wanted to check if this causes any problem in POE.
  12. Congratulations Sin2601, you might have been to that serious half bald headed guy :) and finger prints is normal at VO too i guess. I did my visa on 14th, and I noticed they are asking for few, and skipping few. I am the one from skipping list.

  15. Hi friends, with all motivation given by my friends and friends here at Murthy Forum, I came to Ottawa for my first Visa stamping today which was scheduled at 7.30 AM. here are the series of events happened during my interview: 7.30 AM: I was the 3rd person in the line outside the building. security guy asked for DS160 and he verified in his list, he did the initial scanning to see if there are any guns or weapons. Inside the building: first lady verified I797, passport and attached a piece of paper with barcode on passport. 7.40: Security: switch off the phone. he took it and gave me a token. then asked me to go inside and take left. 7.45: Verification/Ten Printing: 2 counters for verification and tenprinting. lady verified my I797, took my photo (which I gave it for passport- and she gave it back in some time), took my fingerprints, and asked me to wait in the line. 7.45: visa interview: (Background): 2 counters, 1. lady. 2. gent. 1. Lady: girl interview for visiting visa, she asked what is her husbands status, what he does and all the background questions. not sure what happened to her visa. 2. Gent: a guy interview for PHD. VO was asking what he did, why he didnt go to india for stamping, does he have any relatives in US, and his background. eventually, he gave a pink paper and said we cannot approve your visa now. then he called me. and here is my interview: me: Good Morning VO: GM me: handed over passport, 797. VO; (typing something): so tell me about your company, what do they do? me: explained that they provide software solutions to clients VO: oh, ok (after some 15-30 seconds) who is your end client? me: XXXX VO: where is it, is it in Denver? me: no , XXX PA VO: (typing, after few seconds) do you have a client letter I can see me: sure, and while I am taking that out - VO: how much do you earn me:xxxx VO: typing and looking at computer for some more time. VO: looked at client letter and signature of manager. VO: which school did you go ? me: XXX VO: what degree? me: Masters VO: he looked my passport front and back couple of times and threw it into the bin VO: he was looking at the person behind me and waving his two fingers gesturing "come here" , he waved him for more than 2 times, and then said the words: "your visa is approved, congratulations" I said thankyou, came out, gave the token to collect my keys and phone. Note to people attending 7.30 interview: Consulate opens at 7.30, so need not come 30 mins early. they will only allow inside after 7.30. if you come early, the officer will ask you to wait outside. My observation: get CLIENT LETTER, take your VISA. Good luck everyone. cheers :)
