  1. Hello, Planning to travel to India in April and back for a family event. I am getting forward messages in Whatsapp about a few things, so wanted to check with the forum and everyone's experiences so far: 1) Can an Indian citizen with GC be denied entry because of this travel ban? I understand India is not one of the 7 countries named in the list but getting messages that Indians are being detained. 2) I am getting messages that immigration officers are forcing people to sign I-407 to surrender their GC status (not sure how true this is), but any such reports or first hand experiences from anyone here? Thanks in advance for your input.

    Consultancy - Payroll Issue

    Yes, agree this action was senseless, but what are the steps to be taken now? Attorney for which field? Can this action be back-tracked somehow?

    Consultancy - Payroll Issue

    Hello, I need expert's advise with an issue. Friend of mine used to be on H1B, but later moved out of US for good. Friend while in US was working with a desi consultancy firm located in US. Their employer had not paid them in full before they left US and my friend had been in touch with them for quite a while. Recently, my friend approached me saying their visa is no longer valid as they are no longer in US and that they need my help, asked my SSN and bank details so that the employer can run payroll in my name and deposit funds in my bank acct. so I can transfer it to them. I didn't fully understand the tax implications but consented and gave them the details. Now the employer wants me to sign an employment letter and tells me that I need to cite this deposit amount along with my taxes when I file tax returns. I am not sure what to do now and am seeking advise. Should I list this as an income in my tax return? But its not my money, so why should I? Please advise. - Posting for a friend :)

    221G GREEN CHENNAI - SEPTEMBER / OCT TRACKER

    Vijai, 1) How long has it been since you submitted documents? Is your case under admin processing too? 2) Out of interest, assuming cool_naveen has someone else to sponsor visa ready, can he proceed with that now or should he cancel his present application or something?

    221G GREEN CHENNAI - SEPTEMBER / OCT TRACKER

    I was on unpaid vacation for quite a while in 2009 and on several brief intervals. I had to write down the timeframes as far I remembered along with the reasons y I had taken them. Finally swear that the statement issued by me was indeed true and sign. _____________________________________________________________________________________ Interview Date: 27-Oct-2011 Docs Submitted: 14-Nov-2011 Passport Submitted: Yes Model: EVC

    221G GREEN CHENNAI - SEPTEMBER / OCT TRACKER

    Submitted docs two weeks back, along with passport. VFS guy had earlier said it would take around 3-4 business days to process, but it certainly has been more than that now. Tracking passport only provides "Your passport is under process at the US Consulate/Embassy". Anyone else who submitted docs along with passport who got it back? Wat seems to be the turn around time?
