  1. Always tell truth - dont carry prohibited items like rice,garbanzo beans, poppy seeds. Tell them if you carry $ cash in hands. Abu dhabi is little quick when compared to port of entry within USA. I used etihad for flying once, they just asked where you work , which place are you travelling to, showed my baggages on a screen and asked if i carry any prohibited food items.

    H1B and Short term capital loss due to intra trading

    Yes you are right intra trading means - buying and selling on same day . I checked with brokerage firm , but they are clueless - reading through law related forums in internet it just states you should not do intratrading like daily job ( constant source of income).
  4. I 2019 filed taxes just few days back , when i did calculations my short term capital gains COST ( was near 70k) and PROCEEDS (was near 60k) , final LOSS was near 5000$. I showed the loss as 5000 in my tax returns. This short term gain is due to intra trading and options trading. Well no where its mentioned i got loss or gain due to intra or options trading. Now how will US IRS or immigration will know that i did intra trading ? (I did some intra trading for few days). I came to know intra trading is not allowed for H1B holders recently , my bad I did it thinking its allowed during 2019. Is options trading allowed for h1b holders or is that also not allowed for h1b holders ?

    is PERM individual specific or generic.

    Thanks for the reply. Any rough thoughts on how long it takes to file a PERM ? When PERM is in progress can i-94 status change ? I mean is it okie to travel out/in ? Is there anything which needs to be taken care while perm is in progress ?
  7. If my company is filing green card for me - i know first step is PERM . Do they specifically create PERM application for me or will they try to reuse some other approved PERM application from their pool ? Basically i wanted to understand how PERM works in bigger organisation which has more people in same roles applying for GC. Wanted to know whether PERMS are like pooled work permits which can be given to any one who matches that role/job description . I am a newbie to Greencard processing, trying to understand how system works. Advanced thanks for replies.
  8. My company HR asked my birth certificate (for green card processing), i found that my (INDIAN) birth certificate does not have name in it but it has mother name, father name etc ... 1. Is birth certificate needed for PERM processing step ? 2. Or is it needed only during next steps in greencard ? Does US immigration accept legalized birth certificate with "no name" in it for processing ? What are the options available in front of me - if they dont accept ?.

    Stamping dates not available for December 2019 in Chennai

    But in this page https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/visa-information-resources/wait-times.html it says chennai has a wait time of 35 calendar days ? What does that mean ?
  14. I used facebook long back and not active. I heard recent DS160 has social media related fields. Do i need to really fill that ? Anyone got stamping done and approved without social media details using the new DS 160 form ?
