H1B transfer denied after I-94 expiry and later new H1B approved in PP.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I just wanted to know whether I can be eligible for Drop box or should go for Visa Interview.

My initial H1B and I-94 is valid with Company A till Aug 13, 2017. In May 2017, I applied H1B transfer through regular processing with Company B. But it got denied in OCTOBER 2017. Immediately Company B applied a new H1B in premium processing which got approved today on 24 NOV 2017. 

In this situation, Should I go for Visa interview or Am I eligible for Drop box?

You can answer the drop box criteria questions and the system will decide whether you are eligible.

Hi Kiran,

I am in the same boat. Did you stay in usa after getting denial till you get approval ? or you went back to India?

Hi Kiran,

What was the reason for first denial and what did your employer do to get it approved 2nd time?

I recently got H1b amendment denied stating its not specialty occupation and I am wondering what I can do to get it right 2nd time. Your quick response would be highly appreciated as I am travelling in few days and need to decide on this
