  1. @pranavi2008: When you called VFS did they say that your case is still pending?

    I attended the interview on Sept 29 at Hyd consulate. VO kept my passport and told i would get it back in 2 or 3 days but after 2 months of waiting i got my passport back on Dec 1st without visa stamp. I called VFS and they said that my case will/might be sent to KCC for review and the case is closed at consulate. Suddenly after a couple of weeks i called VFS and asked whether my case is sent back to KCC (just to confirm .... i was still not able to believe about my case).. they said that its still under admin processing. I didnt get any email from consulate about my case being sent back to KCC till now so now im really confused wat to believe ...wat they said the first time or wat they are saying now :( :(


  2. @dream16:

    they were actually my employers visitor passes kind of issued every week wen he visited my client place.... my employer kinda comes under the category who takes care of his employees a bit more than others :)

    Its not mandatory to mention Vendors name in Letter To USCIS so not having vendor name in Letter To USCIS doesnt make your H1 B petition invalid or a reason to reject ... VO just wanted to know whether my employer has informed USCIS that i have a vendor in between my employer and client....


  3. @nbendi- sent email with my cell#

    @dream16 - Not sure why was it rejected. I showed VO all the documents to prove E-E relationship like status reports, my employer visiting client office receipts and email conversations etc. He was kind of satisfied but the only question he had was about the Letter to USCIS didnt mention the vendors name....he asked my did my employer inform USCIS that i have a vendor in between which he did because i applied my H1 only with Vendor docs as i got my client letter very late.

    Client letter clearly mentioned the start date and end date which for another 2 yrs so i think client letter might not be the reason for refusal.

    Not sure what to do next .. :( :(

    My employer doesnt want to file for H1 again as VO might again give 221g so kind of confused what to do

  6. Hi Jayd,

    Congrats for your visa. I am also in the same boat like you. I attend my first stamping on May18 and was sent back to USCIS so applied new H1 with same employer and went for stamping on Sept 29th. VO kept my passport and handed my a blue 221g with a case number on it and said will send your passport after some verification. When asked him how much time this verification would take he told that its a small verification and will take 1 or 2 days at max but no update yet.

    Seeing your case gives me some confidence. So did you get any 221g form or was it just a tracking number?

    Congrats again !!! :)


  7. Hi ,

    I am in the same situation as you are. My visa interview was on Sept 29 at Hyd. VO handed me 221g Blue with Case Number and kept my passport and told me that he has to verify with USCIS whether my employer has informed USCIS that there is vendor in between client and my employer. He told me this process will take 2 r 3 days but its already more than a week. Did the VO take your passport?

    Mine is EVC model same as u and Petition is valid from Sept 01 2011 to AUG 15 2014.

    Did you talk with your employer? What did he say?

    Thanks


  8. Hi Everyone,

    I attended my H1 B visa interview today. Asked all questions on Employer- Employee relationship.

    Answered all of them perfectly and i think VO was satisfied.

    But last question made my dad with Blue slip.

    VO: Letter to USCIS from your employer doesnt specify the Vendor name (Mine is EVC Model). Have to confirm whether USCIS was informed about the vendor in between the client and your employer

    Me: I showed him the I-129 petition which had letters from my Vendor and Client which clearly stated about the Vendor. ALso showed him the PO, Contract letters between my employer and Vendor, Vendor and Client. Also showed him the client letter.

    VO: I am going to keep all this documents and contact USCIS to make sure they know about this relationship and handed my Blue Slip with case number.

    Me: How much time will it take for this process

    VO: One or two days at the max

    VO kept my passport , I-129 and other docs like client letter, letter to USCIS etc

    No sure how long its going to take. I went for H1b stamping earlier on May18 2011 which was rejected under 221g yellow slip at Hyd. Its already been more than 4.5 months i have been in India.

    NOW THE WAIT STARTS AGAIN.

    Guys who got 221 G Blue slip at Hyd please share your experiences so that we can be in touch and have an idea about the processing times.

    Thanks and All The Best for everyone!!!!!


  10. Can you please tell what questions were you asked in the second interview. I am also planning to go for 2nd time after my 1st interview which was rejected and i applied for new petition which is approved. I would be a lot of help for me. Did they ask for any documents?

    Or else you can send me your phone number to my email address in my profile so that i can give you a call.

    Thanks in advance...


  11. Hi Hins1982,

    I am in the same situation. I attended visa interview on May 18th at Hyderabad consulate and got rejection letter on July 20th. I have a couple of questions about the amendment. My employer has been working with our attorney and they said that once a visa is rejected we cannot amend the I-129 petition. So i have to cancel my current H1 petition and apply a new one. The attorney is one of the leading immigration attorney in NJ. So was thinking was yours a new petition or it was just an amendment.

    Are you planning to attend the interview again at Hyderabad consulate?

    Just wanted to confirm whats happening with my case as its similar to yours.

    Thanks in advance
