New Petition Approved ..Go to Visa Interview or wait for reaffirmation result..Please guide!!

Recommended Posts

Advisers,

Need your suggestion urgently!!

My Visa was refused under 221(g) on june 1st 2011. And, embassy has sent my case to USCIS for further review. After checking my EAC No. on USCIS link, they have updated the status that they received a case on June 6th 2011. and they will notify me once review will over. It's been 7 months, Neither they updated me nor they have updated the changes on the website. Meanwhile, my employer has applied for new petition that got approved till 2014. Please suggest shall I wait for re-affirmation or should go for fresh visa stamping.

Thanks and looking forward for your valuable thoughts...

pranavi2008 ,

I did not get any docs back from consulate (Including original 797). They sent me a letter saying "

Your petitioner does not appear to be either able or willing to provide qualifying employment in the US in accordance with appropriate laws and regulations.

"

Now my case sent back to KCC ...Got 221g green on April 25 for H1b 6 year extn ...

My attorney is trying to track my case detail from USCIS ...

HI Pranavi ,

I did not receive any docs back from Consulate as they dont have any original copies .

I got a email on Nov 27th , dated 18th that it was returned to USCIS for employer's flimsy financial statements.

Hi All,

I think i am the oldest one of you all. My case was sent back to USICS on nov 9th 2010. I got the reaffirmation on nov 25th 2011. it took almost a year to come back. I honestly suggest you all to apply for another H1 instead of waiting for 1 year. let me know if you have any questions.

My opinion to everyone

Apply for New h1b with same or new employer if you got 221g and waiting for more than 1 month..there is no point waiting after that.. they will send your case back to the USCIS and reaffirmation/revocation game starts from there which could take any where between 6 months to 1 year or even more in some cases.

The best deal is apply for new h1b. This is my own experience. I have gone through this stress for more than a year...

@Raj

Did USCIS contact your employer or attorney in between the time when your case was sent back up to the reaffirmation?

HI Simply,

I did not apply for a new petition but they asked me to come to interview again, I have sent them an email and waiting for the response. Another thing is in this one year time my old petition that i took for the last interview got expired last month so my employer applied for renewal and got it approved. So just waiting on the response from US consulate about how to proceed with my new renewed case.

HI KuKu,

Yes my employer received an NOIR and we replied right away with what ever they asked for. But it took too long to reach them and get it reaffirmed.

Let me know if you have any more questions...

Hi friend,

Can you please clarify my question ? is your new employer applied new H1B under new quota(2011) or applied under old quota (your first h1B year quota) ?

Since 2011(current year quota(65,000) already over).

Regards,

chiru

HI victim221g_hyd

No they say it as NOIR will be responded within 60 days but it is not true in my case, it took more than 90 days for me to get a repsonse, when my attorney questioned about the delay they simply said they did not get the document and asked us to send it again...It really frustrated me a lot. I dont know why USCIS is behaving like this. Hope i answered your question.

Let me know if you need anything else

Guys Please help me with my situation... I need some experts suggestion...

I went to hyd consulate and got 221 g yellow on May 2011. I work on EVC model . I gave all the required docs to the VO during the interview. VO told that NO further Action is required my side and Consulate will contact me when I need to send my passport.

Unfortunately , Nobody contacted me yet.

My situation is my I 797 is going to expire on Mar 2012. Now I found an employer who can sponsor H1 while am in India,

My Question Do I need to withdraw my old petition which is hanging at the hyd consulate before applying new h1 or h1 transfer.

Another Question is Can my future employer directly transfer my H1 without applying for new H1.

Please respond appropriately.... Any Suggestions are appreciated...

hi tungathurthi ,

Let me tell you out of my exp which best suits you here .

1) even i had hanged in the same way for 7 months and got the petition returned to USCIS , so instead of waiting for the same , you withdraw the visa application by contacting vfs .

before you go for stamping for the new employer , you need to withdraw the old one .

2) since you are in India , transfer is almost same as filing a new one , since you already have a petition approval (old one )you dont fall under cap count , so send a copy of your old petiiton to new employer .

Hi Raghavadi,

One question, if you can help me. In my case they said that they are going to revoke my petition and sending it back to USCIS.

I guess in my case I don't have to withdraw my application, since they did not give me any slip neither took anything from me. So now either my employer look for another client or I can look for another employer. Correct ?

@Raghavapudi

Thanks for the response... So Can my future employer go for the H1 transfer now without me withdrawing the current petition.

I am thinking to withdraw the current petition after my new H1 is approved. Am I thinking correctly.. Please suggest...
