passport sumbission OR Fresh Visa interview???? please suggest

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

i got a passport submission request as a part of 221G AAP from chennai.(validity of I-797 is only untill Nov 2012)

meanwhile. i also have I-797 for 3 yrs from another company now, in-house project with 25 milion gross income, 300 employees, american company.

waht could be the best option now? whether to submit passport for earlier small desi company with 7 more months of validity? OR

shall i go for a fresh interview with 3 yrs of valid I-797? what will be the chances of getting visa?

please suggest.......thanks

Dude, go with the one that is cleared first, you don't know what is going to happen on the new stamping, thousands of people are stranded with no stamping, don't throw away yours. If you really want to switch to new company, do it after you enter US. Do not gamble on new stamping at any cost. It is not worth it

@h1bvsa, ds 160 has no relation to your stamping, there are many poeple filling out ds forms and many saved but incomplete applications at any point with Department of Homeland security. That is just a form required for security purposes. It is not equal to booking another visa appointment.

If your visa is already cleared (in your case looks like it is, because they ask for passport submission only after it is cleared), then you should get it back with the visa stamp within 1 week to 10 days

Good luck!

Hi all, Thanks for your suggestions .

As i saw in few posts like , after sumitting the passport , consulate will send questionnaire to the clients , etc and may again issue 221G without visa stamp in the passport.....so am not confidetn as client stated , he cannot support few E-E related questions,

also , the stamp may be valid only for 6 month from now.

After going thru lawyers opinion and lot of stress, as there are every document and hope to get thrugh( american lawyer, amwrican company, full time, inhouse proj), the visa job interview, scheduled my new bisa appointment.

if everything goes well, I will get three years stamping( no issue for 3 more years an dno stress)

I'm not sure wats gonna happen , gud luk to u all....Iwill update my status on apr 19th.
