    Drop box to Interview

    Its better to check with an attorney, but I feel you should be able to travel back by withdrawing your visa petition and If you can find a way to come back with the current lock down.

    Change of status: F2 to H1B

    There is no option or alternative to stamping. If you somehow travel to India with the lock down in place, you can ask the consulate if they will do an emergency appointment provided you qualify for it.

    H1B stamp - options

    All I can say is to wait and see if there is any improvement by your EAD expiry date. If your EAD expires and you can't get the visa by then, you will have to stop working. But you can always go for stamping and come back on H1.
  6. No, if selected i lottery the case will be have to filed by the employer who submitted your petition for the lottery.

    You will need to show the job will be valid in the future and not a past job.

    H1b transfer with I-140 Approval Pending

    1. Yes, but that will still allow you to maintain the PD 2. It depends on B 3. It will be valid till the current EAD expiry date and you should be able file for an renewal with A's I140.

    Question of H1B Transfer - Bridge petition

    I94 expiry date. File the transfer before i94 expiry date to avoid a bridge petition. If you apply before I94 expiry date, you can request an extension of stay. SOC code will depend on your job duties and changes to SOC code will not be a factor for rejection (at least as far I know).

    H1B transfer rejected

    Wait for the reason for the denial and see if you can file an appeal. If you file an appeal, you should be able to stay as long as the appeal is pending. This should buy you some time. Only catch if you can't work while its pending. Don't fall into the Day 1 CPT trap, its not worth it.
  14. Even if you get 60 days, it will be safe to apply for a B or a dependent visa (if that's an option) just as fall back plan if the current condition lasts for more than 60 days.

    H1B: Unpaid Period

    You can be unpaid and wait for the petition to be approved. But after its approved, you will have to join the new employer and it will depend on when you are available for work or join them. Once you report to work, they should start paying you.

    Contacting the congressman will not give you anything since the bill is still not passed and they don't know what will happen.

    1. It takes a min of 2 weeks for filing an H1 peition. 2. Plan on converting to B visa if you don't think you will find a job by the end date. 3. Don't risk on being out of status, atleast have a pending B petition which will be better.
  18. You can take the risk if you have Valid I94.

    H1B Extended Stay Due To Corona Virus

    No. Plan on leaving or converting to B1/B2 if you can't.

    intend to revoke Got a notice to employer

    He can reply to the revoke notice and if it is still revoked he can do an appeal. Since its B's notice that is being revoked, he should still be able to transfer to C.

    H1B Transfer after I94 expiry

    No premium processing currently. If B does a bridge petition, it will depend on A's approval and if A's petition is denied or withdrawn then B's Petition will also be denied. Its better to apply in Consular processing and go for stamping. But in these current times, I don't know when the consulates will be back open for you to do stamping and come back. Best think might be to not join on receipt if they are applying after I94 expiry date.
  22. Your Current I94 will be the one that you got with the transfer approval notice and not the old one. So make sure you are going by that date.
  23. When you applied for a transfer and got an I797A approval notice, then your extension of stay is approved. What made you think that the extension of stay is denied?

    Corona travel - EAD

    As far as I know you will have to be in the US to apply for an EAD. If you can travel asap that might be good option rather than waiting till July.
  25. Problem comes when they have to pay you as an employee. With 221G and Embassy closure they don't know how long you will be in India that might be the reason they are ask you to move to the Indian firm.
