    H-1B Visa Interview

    Hello All, I need some suggestions regarding my H-1B Visa stamping issue. I have attended visa interview on 09/05/2018 and issued 221g, Waiting from 6 months for an update, I am still working from my India office. The underlying i-797A for the existing visa application is about to expire on 09/11/2019. Since we have an option to file an extension before 6 months, My employer has agreed to file an extension after 03/11/2019 ( which is 6 months before the expiry ). As i am outside the States and filed for an extension, The approval would be a i-797B ( consular processing ). My question here is can i send a copy of my i-797B to the embassy that i got my extension approved and get the new validity stamped on the Visa stamp? My attorney has updated that my visa application with existing i-797A is at final validation stage and we can expect an update by end of March or starting week of April, Can i directly send them the new i-797 B petition and passport once i get the mail to submit passport? I wanted to check if an interview is needed again ? As my current visa application is still pending, There is no change in the petitioner or the nature of work? Any suggestions are appreciated!! Regards,

    H1B stamping HYD

    Hello, I've got a mail to collect the passport, There was a 221g white slip placed with a different case number. Check marked on first option " you will receive further instructions at the email address you provided ..... " The status of the Visa still shows "Administrative Processing" . I am working with an immigration attorney to respond with DS-5535. Does anybody have an idea roughly how many days does it takes for DS-5535 processing? Thanks & Regards.

    H1B stamping HYD

    Hello, Thanks for your response, I've received email today " ineligible for a nonimmigrant visa under Section 214(b) of the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act" and asked to submit the DS-5535 to HydADMIN@state.gov at the earliest. Passport is still retained with them. I am not understanding what it means? Will the embassy reconsider to approve the visa after submitting DS-5535 ? Did anybody face this situation for visa stamping? Thanks & Regards,

    Hello Gopal, I am in similar situation, had visa interview at Hyderabad consulate on Sep 5th, Straight forward questions regarding client and job duties, passport retained, VO informed there will be an Admin process for a week and you will get a mail when your visa is ready. Gave me a white slip with a 14 digit case number to check the case status ( which doesn't work) , VO check marked on " your application needs additional administrative processing before a final decision is made" . It's been almost 14 days now, status shows as Administrative processing. since you mentioned your friend had a similar situation in Hyderabad and cleared in 3-4 days, Just wanted to know when this situation occurred? is it in the recently? Thanks & Regards.

    H1B stamping HYD

    Hello All, I’ve attended Visa interview on Sep 5th. This is my first H1B stamping after initial F1 status. Working for a reputed finance client in EVC model since last 3 years. VO Asked basic question Is this your first H1B? Have your ever been out of status? Have you worked in OPT? Are you aware of the NI rules ? Are working as FTE or with an end client? Explain the job duties? these were the questions asked and I’ve answered very confidently. VO did not check a single document and retained my passport saying there will be an admin processing for 7 days and you will receive a mail when your visa is ready. VO did not say your visa is approved ( But my passport is retained ) and have me a white slip with a 14 digit number and checked on your application needs additional admin processing before a final decision is made. Its been 14 days now, the status of my visa still shows admin processing. Anybody who has faced a similar situation?

    H1 B stamping.

    Hello All, I came to USA in 2013 on F1 visa, completed masters in 2015 from a reputed university. Working for a good employer since last 3.5 years. H1 B approved in Oct 2016, I-140 approved with same employer in July 2017. Due to a qualifying incident that occurred in 2015, I came to know that i qualified for U, Upon a reputed attorney's suggestion applied for u-visa in March 2018, Bio-metrics done in May 2018 and waiting for Deferred Action status. ( Attorney seems to be very confident in getting my U-Visa approved ). Now, I have a need to go to my home country, Which would need H1-B visa stamping, I am confident of getting all the documents for my H1-B stamping. My question here are 1) In general does a pending visa have any effect on H1-B stamping ? 1) My U-visa is pending, Does that give an impression that i am potential immigrant? 2) If there are any question about why i applied U-Visa instead of having H1-B, what should be my answer ? Any kind of suggestions are really appreciated. Thanks in advance! Regards, Vee
