  1. Hi, I was working in US from 2007 to 2012 on H1-B visa. During that period, my employer at that time filed immigrant petition and got approved I-140 with priority date of June 2011. In 2012, I moved back to India and started working for a new employer. My I-140 was not withdrawn by old employer. In my current job, I was required to travel to US for a small duration for business purposes, for which i recently applied for B1-visa and it was denied with 214(g). During my interview the consular only asked about the purpose of my travel and my role in current organization which I responded accurately and confidently. However consular spent quite sometime looking at his computer screen and then handed me 214(g). In my form DS-160, i did mention that my ex-employer has filed an immigrant petition and it was not withdrawn. Could that be the reason, for my B1 visa denial? Can I not travel to US on non-immigrant visa until my immigrant petition is approved? What are the other options I have to travel to US for short term? Thank you for reading and responding to my query.
