    Should I fill Form I944 while filing I485

    Technically its optional till 10/13/2020. USCIS cannot reject your application but may RFE you. the form is cumbersome but might save you a few months delay.
  2. I just filed my I-485 today (my Priority date is 12/2010). My employer wants me to file a EB1-B. is it worth going through that extra trouble and is it even possible to file for another I-485 incase it gets approved with a previous pending I-485? THANK YOU!

    Dumb question: Priority date on I-140

    Friends, I have 3 dates on on I-140. Which one is my real priority date? Priority date: Dec 2009 Receipt date: Jan 2011 Notice date: Jan 2011 Initially I thought its was the 'real' priority date, but my University lawyer says its the notice date. thank you!
  4. I'm working with my university for my EB-1B application. One of the criteria, on my research, is high salary, for EB1s... can that be used if I can give documentary evidence that I am in the top 10% wage-wise, as compared to my peers? thanks
  5. I'm an academic critical care physician. My H1B runs out on 30th July. I have a approved petition till 2023 and a I-94 till 6/2023 (recent travel) I want to get my visa stamped in Canada or Mexico on a expedited basis but my university lawyer doesn't want me to. he thinks I'm taking an unnecessary risk. I think I should be safe since I take care of covid patients and have that in writing. I feel the need to have the visa stamped if I have to go to my home country in a pinch. what do you Gurus' think? thank you!

    Kid Visa Stamping - H4

    He is not subject as long as you were in status on June 24th. The Department of state clarified that on twitter, yesterday. They have a account called Travel gov. Spouses and dependents are not subject as long as you were in the US on the 24th in a legal status.

    H1B doctors starting 1st July

    One of our interns is from Nepal and the US embassy there is completely unresponsive.
  10. Are the new interns starting on July 1, the ones who applied for and got a H1B approval , getting their visas stamped? I heard that some new doctors were put on Admin processing. We have hired a couple of people on H1B and we are waiting for them to show up.

    Valid I-797, expired Visa stamp, travel to India

    Technically, you are exempt from the ban, because you ARE IN US when the proclamation was announced. (Obviously talk to a lawyer). They may decide to let you get your visa stamped. That was what I took away from **** *******.

    June 22 Proclamation

    Unfortunately, not. I-797 is not a travel document. You need a valid visa. Paradoxically, if you were in the US, at this time, you would be excluded from the ban. That is why this seems so unfair. This was answered on a different forum last night.

    Expediating Visa stamping (criteria)

    I read in multiple places that classes starting and/or work stating at a certain date and you needing to be there also qualifies for expediated appointment. I know that I'm inside the country but if my work starts on 1st of August, and my visa expires 30th of July, could that we grounds for expedition? Lastly, when we have to enter Canada, will 'I've come to Canada for Visa stamping' be considered as essential travel? (i'm talking of current times, while the Pandemic is still going on) thank you
  14. Can someone tell me what are the criteria for requesting a expedited visa stamping appointment in Canada? I work in an essential role as a critical care physician at a large hospital. My mother is ill in India but stable. I'm hoping to visit her but my visa expires in July. Once the embassy opens up, may I request an expedited visa stamping appointment? thank you Pappu
  15. I just booked an appointment for stamping on 22nd of August in Ottawa. 1. anyone see any earlier dates? 2. Can I change to an earlier date if available? 3. How often can you change your appointment? 4. Any suggestions to get an earlier date? thank you!
