    i485 Interview Question

    thank you,appreciate your view on this.
  2. - Worked for Employer A on H1 for 5 years and shifted to Employer B for 1 year - Left US and came back after 5 years on H1 again with Employer A (who also sponsored my GC ) and currently working from about 1.5 years - Received EAD recently and going for i485 interview shortly - Will there be any issue regarding the five year gap in the i485 interview ?

    Going for stamping after 8 years

    IMO,it should not create any issues,but having a approved I-140 did not carry any weight in my case.I've come after 7 years and had my visa revoked.The focus is more on the current employer/client/work and the relevant documents.This is only my experience.Good Luck to you.
  4. yes,you can find this easily by going to the website of the consulate from where you wish to go for the visa.

    Any EC models with Blue 221G in Hyd

    I believe it's not the model that matters but how you prove the emp-emp relationship and the relevant docs that you show as evidence.i'm confident about this since i know someone who is on EVVC model and got his visa without any queries based on the docs and dealing with the officer's questions 'smartly'.

    221g-Remotely working from India

    You will pay taxes in India and can get exemption only if you are paid in Rupees by your employer having office here.Can you share those articles that you have come across.I guess the below link from IRS can give you better picture on how you can determine if you have pay taxes or not ? http://www.irs.gov/businesses/small/international/index.html

    221g-Remotely working from India

    sorry for my ignorance..you would need to file only in US.you do not need to file in india unless your employer has an office in india and pays you in rupees.that's my understanding since i'm working in the same way.

    221g-Remotely working from India

    are you paid in dollars or rupees ?
  9. Congratulations on getting the visa.Appreciate if you could share some information about your case. Are you on E-C or E-V-C model ? What was the reason for refusal ? Is it employer-employee relationship ? If so,how did u manage to prove it this time ? Any information would be useful to lot of people hanging here without any clue of their future.Thx.
  10. Thanks for the details..the questionnaire seems to have become common for everyone resulting without any outcome and leaving us hanging in the air for no fault of us.

    Administrative site visit. plz help

    i went through the same ordeal and had similar questions and i answered it the same way as you did.i've not heard someone's h1 getting 'revoked' based on this basis.these visits have become very common to almost everyone though they say you are randomly chosen.they don't give you any outcome either.i'd say,relax !
  15. i'm in this stupid game frm 3mnths for now without any clue of the outcome.this is such a nonsense situation that everyone else doesn't lose much and we lose everything - time,money,status and peace ! i would have been more than happy if USCIS has denied it in the first place instead of getting caught in this infinite loop created by this approval system and officers who doesn't have any consistent policies for granting a visa.

    Case not sent to USCIS

    During the intw,I clearly asked the VO if they need my original and he returned it back saying they have a copy.I have been enquiring if the case is sent to USCIS and no response ! :-(

    Any EC models with Blue 221G in Hyd

    Looks like someone is funding them to do all this..it's just heights or irresponsibilty on their part inspite of taking our whole life in docs to them for the intw !

    Any EC models with Blue 221G in Hyd

    There were very few questions : Who do you work for,What is Client location,How often and how do you report to your Employer,Who provides daily tasks ? The guy who intwd me is a desi who hardly has any idea abt what we speak. I provided all docs including letter from Client and reference from Manager.This is my 6th yr extn.I got my approval based on I-140.From what i see,there is no problem with any model as long as you prove a valid relationship with necessary documentation.The problem is with the model or lack of one between USCIS and these consulates keeping us stranded for no fault of us.I work for an american company.The intw was on 5th Dec 2011 and received refusal a week later.I'm waiting for the final notice from USCIS.

    Visa Interview at Hyderabad

    the best precaution and advice that i can give is 'JUST AVOID HYD'.chk out any immigration forums by searching for 'hyd'..and you will not regret my suggestion !
  20. am in the same boat..heard from someone it's going to take upto 6 months..but nothing concrete !
