L1orH1 replied to spar128's topic in H1B : Visa StampI completed my DS-160 (for my H1B extension with say, XYZ company), paid visa fee and while scheduling an appointment, I came across Interview Waver Program. As per my knowledge, I am eligible for this program. I just have one clarification/doubt that I would like to be 100% sure before proceeding ahead with the Waver Program. For Reference I would like to copy the Eligibility criteria that I would like confirmation on: • *If I am applying for an H or L (individual) visa, my prior visa in the same classification with the same petitioner is still valid or expired within the last 12 months. Note: Blanket L1 visa applicants do not qualify, but Blanket L2 spouses are eligible.* *Question*: My prior visa is in the same classification (i.e. H1B) with the same petitioner (say XYZ) and expired in July 2013. I am in the same job, same role, same organization (i.e. XYZ) and same location. BUT, in my prior I-797, my petitioner is mentioned as "XYZ Corporation Inc" and in my H1B extension I-797, my petitioner is mentioned as "XYZ Inc". As per my attorney, both XYZ Corporation Inc and XYZ Inc. are the same company but they have different FEINs. So, my question is would it be considered as same petitioner or a new petitioner scenario?
