    Travel to India

    Hello All, Hope everyone in the forum is doing great! This is Karn and I have an unavoidable travel to India next weekend. My I797B and H1B stamp are valid until August 2020, however, my passport expires in June 2020. Last time when I had entered US in June 2018, the immigration officer at port of entry changed my I94 expiration date to the expiration date of my passport which is June 2020. So now my i94 expiration date is June 2020 depite having I797B valid until August 2020. My question is, can there be an issue at the port of entry (I plan to reenter US in mid January 2019) if my I94 expiration date is same as my passport expiration date? I have heard somewhere that the passport must be valid for at least 6 months after your planned departure date which is same as I94 expiration date. Can there be a problem in the port of entry? Please advise. Many thanks in advance and happy holidays! Karn

    Travel to India

    Hi, Thanks for your response. Appreciate that. Actually your last paragraph kind of answers my question. So I will enter US in January 2019. My Passport and I94 are valid until June 2020. So I was actually trying to ask, will there be any problem at POE if the passport expiration date is same as I94 expiration date. I heard somewhere that the passport should be valid for at least 6 months after the I94 expires. So for example in my case, my I94 expires on June 2020, hence my passport should be valid at least until Dec 2020. Can there by any problem if that's the case?
  3. Hello all, My attorney received an RFE for Specialty Occupation on 25th September for CAP 2018. Is anybody in the same boat? Is there anyone who has responded to this RFE and has already received approval / denial for this?

    RFE for Specialty Occupation

    @sp2311 I was in the same phase few months back. My RFE got approved though. I have Bachelor's and Master's in Biomedical Engineering and I work as a Quality Engineer in a Medical Device Company.

    H1B stamping experience in Hyderabad

    Thanks for sharing and congratulations!
  10. Hello all, My H1b stamping is scheduled on 16th January in Mumbai Consulate. How is the current scenario over there? Is it tough to get the H1b stamp approved? It would be a great help if someone can share their recent experience in Mumbai consulate. Thanks in advance.

    RFE for Specialty Occupation

    Not yet! My attorney submitted the response last week. USCIS portal changed to 'response received' on 2nd Nov. Should hear something by 20 Nov, as it has been sent for premium processing.

    Travel to India on H1B RFE

    Hello all, My H1 was picked in the lottery and I received an RFE on September first week. My attorney is yet to respond, as my documents are currently going through expert evaluation. I was on CAP-GAP which expired on 30th September. I was terminated and my HR assured me that they would be able to rehire me once my H1 is approved. Since I am no longer working, it is obvious that I lost my medical coverage and unfortunately I got a thigh injury. It is getting worse with every passing day. Frankly speaking, I cannot afford the medical bills in US at this point of time. I am planning to make a trip to India and return after getting an H1 stamp on my passport. So my question is; will it be okay to travel to India when my file is under RFE? Any comment / suggestion would be helpful. Thanks for your time.

    Travel to India on H1B RFE

    @JoeF: I believe it's COS because I was on F1 until 30th September. So if COS is denied, then can I get a new stamp on my passport and re-enter States? Though even my F1 stamp has expired.
  14. @JoeF Hi Joe, I understand your concern that these day -1 CPT universities are quite shady (honestly I am the one who declined this option), however, it seems many people are able to maintain their status by going that route. There are many who have taken admission in xxxxxxx University, xxxxxxx University etc, and got away without any hassle.
  15. Get enrolled for CPT from day1. Did you receive an RFE prior to the denial?

    H1B Denial

    @sp2017: Sorry to hear about you denial. A genuine employer should share all the information. There are many shady desi consultancies which do not disclose the above mentioned details. There are many cases of successful MTR, however, it's a lengthy process. May I also ask what was the category of your RFE? This time it seems most of the RFEs are getting denied.
  19. @H1bSpecial: Sorry to hear about your denial. I believe your employer can definitely file a new petition. It is independent of the MTR. Actually, even I received an RFE last week for Specialty Occupation. If you don't mind, may I ask what documentation did you submit in general, because I am planning to send my documentation to USCIC soon. Your response will be helpful. Thanks!

    RFE for Specialty Occupation

    @Sureshkumar46 Hi Suresh, My attorney said that I need to prove that my work is directly related to my field of study. I have to mention the detailed job description along with the % of time spent on each job responsibility and relevance of that job duty with a particular course in academics. I would also need to provide the job listings from the other companies where they require the same degree for the position on which I am currently working. May I ask if your second RFE is for Specialty Occupation? Or was that your first RFE? Can you please tell me what are your RFEs about? Thank in advance.

    New H1B denied after RFE - Options

    Hi Career21, If you don't mind, may I ask if they provided any rationale for denial? Because I am in the same boat, and my attorney would be responding to the same RFE pretty soon. Your reply would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
