  1. @shekar11# I have posted my experience here. Just for anyone else to followup what happened on this case. Thanks again 🙂
  2. @gopalakrishnach Got the visa stamped on the new passport. The visa on old passport was cancelled with Cancelled Without Prejudice. So finally its all good. Which means - “Cancelled Without Prejudice” is an embassy or consulate stamp of cancellation that indicates an administrative mistake in the visa. It sometimes indicates that there is a mistake in the visa or that the visa is a duplicate. It does not affect the validity of other visas in the passport and does not prejudice future visa applications. A “Cancelled Without Prejudice” stamp does not prevent the passport holder from getting another visa. Thanks to this forum for help. @xTDx yes it was holiday hence posted to know, since i was in unique position, I wanted to make travel plans as well. Thanks for reading though.
  3. Posting on behalf of wife. My wife went to India and was eligible for dropbox at US Consulate in Kolkata. I submitted documents on - 8th April The DS-160 page status showed Application Received on - 9th April The visa status updated from Administrative processing to Issued both on - 18th April I checked the http://www.ustraveldocs.com/in/in-niv-passporttrack.asp on 18th April and it says "Your passport is ready for pickup". Also got email from ustraveldocs mentioning my passport is ready for pickup. Since 19th Apr is Good Friday, its going to be holiday and I want to book my tickets back to US. My question is does this mean that my visa is stamped, is there any possibility of 221(g) or any possibility like that? I will keep you update on what happens on this. Thanks appreciate your time for reading.
  4. @shekar11# thanks, I just got in touch with my attorney and they told me my visa is invalid since I overstayed. I will have to go to India and reapply for visa. Mostly it will go under admin processing after which i will get a new Visa. I will always have to mention that I overstayed in my DS-160 for all future DS-160's. Hence I cant leave since while coming back my visa will be invalid. I will let you know what happens after I am done in India. Appreciate your time 🙂
  5. Hello, I am in middle of an issue here that I realized today, since I got a new job. I wouldn't have known this otherwise. My I-94 has expired on 10/28/2018 based on my old passport expiry. My I-797 is expiring on 07/09/2020. My current H1-B visa is expiring on 07/09/2020. I got my new passport issued on 09/12/2018. So basically I-797 is valid, H1-B is valid but I-94 is expired. I came to know about this because I got a new job and the new employer mentioned that I will have to go for consular processing because, I am out of status. I was not aware that my I-94 expiring will cause me going out of status. I read some forums here but I could not find a specific case same as mine. Also its been less than 180 days since my I-94 has expired. Please advice what are my options. A quick response will be appreciated. Appreciate for your time.
