    Thank you for your comments. I know that we can get abundant curry leaves in the US. That was my third visit to the US. It was a clear mistake on my end.

    Hi, Don't want to go into the details but I was fined once for $300 at port of entry for carrying curry leaves. Currently, my employer is planning to initiate PERM process for me and the attorney has sent me a questionnaire to fill out. One of the question says below. "Have you ever been arrested, cited, charged, indicted, fined or imprisoned for breaking or violating any laws or any ordinance, excluding minor traffic violations?" Do I have to say YES or NO for it? Please advise. Thank you very much!!

    H1B Stamping

    Thank you for your response. True that. No one does anything like such intentionally. While packing my check-in bags, my father added them unknowingly and I never looked at it till the officer opened the bag during the checking. I'm not justifying by making that statement but sometimes stuff happens unknowingly.

    H1B Stamping

    Background: I'm currently on H-1B, full-time, and Non-IT background. Visiting India during November and December of this year. Attending a visa interview during the first week of December. Situation: I've gone to India during 2017-18. while returning, at the port of entry, during the checking, I was found with a bag of dried curry leaves. Before the check when the officer asked me whether I'm carrying any plant-related products, I said 'NO' as I wasn't aware that they were in the bag (not justifying my self, it was a clear mistake on my side). I was fined $300 for carrying the leaves. Question: 1. What kind of questions I could expect from the interviewer during the Visa Interview. 2. Could this be a reason to give me a 221-G or to reject the visa? 3. Any points for me to consider. Please suggest. Thank you in advance for your responses.
  6. Hi, I'm currently working as a full-time professional on an H-1B Visa. The position that I'm working on requires a bachelor degree with 3-5 years of experience. I have a US Master's degree and 6 months prior experience before the current role. I'm working in my current role since March 2017. For EB2 Advanced degree, USCIS states that "The job you apply for must require an advanced degree and you must possess such a degree or its equivalent (a baccalaureate degree plus 5 years progressive work experience in the field)". Since the position that I'm currently working on does not require a Master's degree, am I eligible for an EB-2 Visa? My other question is, am I eligible for an EB-3 Visa? If yes, which category of EB-3 visa am I eligible for (EB3 Professional)? How can I justify to my firm that I meet the minimum education and experience requirements to apply for an EB-3 Visa? Can I use my Master's degree as an equivalent experience in justifying the minimum qualifications? Please help me with the information. Thank you for your time.
  7. Hello all, Details: Currently on OPT. OPT end date: June 30, 2017. Will apply for OPT STEM extension in 2-3 weeks. Employed: Full-time. Applied for H1B this year, waiting for lottery results. Planning to visit India in between June 1st and 18th. Is it advisable to travel during the last few weeks of OPT? If yes, what are the important documents needed so that there is no immigration problem while getting back to the US? Thank you!
