    H1B Visa Refusal - Urgent Help

    Hi, I am also in the exact same situation. But I had just finished my last project before coming back, and was about to interview for the next one...had to postpone it because of my urgent travel plans. So basically now I do not even have a project to work on from here, for the time being. Fortunately my best friend is getting married next month. I am considering applying for a B2 visa, to attend the wedding. Of course my friend will be sending the card, sponsor letter, our pictures, etc. I have also started working here for a new employer and will get a letter from them stating that I work for them, and will be on leave for 2 weeks to attend the wedding. What do you think are my chances for getting the B2? Any advice/suggestions/ideas??? Please let me know. Thanks so much!!
  3. Hi forumman, can you possibly share what reason they stated for your H1 rejection? my H1 also got rejected under 221(g) and they said my petitioner does not appear to be either able or willing to provide employment in accordance with US laws and regulations. I am just curious to know if this is a blanket statement they are making generally, or if this really was a specific problem they saw in my case.
  4. leo_maverick, based on the pt 2 you made....wouldn't it take an entire year to get a new H1? is there a way to get a new H1 petition and go back in 30-45 days? can you please provide more details about this. am also in a similar situation. thanks!!
  5. Hi everyone! I am new to this forum. I also went through the disappointment of receiving a 221g green slip (at New Delhi) during my H1B stamping interview. And I have already received a denial. Unfortunately in my case, the document submission (that was stated on the green slip) got extremely delayed....because of some family issues, travel and then my employer's attorney was travelling, etc. It was a sad difficult phase of my life. Anyways, I had submitted my documents almost 50 days after the visa interview, and the rejection letter was issued just 2 weeks after they received my documents. They sent the letter to me much later though. But I feel that they did not even do any administrative processing in my case, and just issued the rejected letter as soon as they received my document package. I have a Masters degree in USA and had been working there for last 2 yrs. Quoting the main statements from the rejection letter: "Based on the documents you have submitted to us, and the information elicited in your interview with an American Consular Officer, we are not able to issue you an H1-B temporary work visa, because: Your petitioner does not appear to be either able or willing to provide qualifying employment in the United States in accordance with appropriate laws and regulations. For your information, your visa was refused today under Section 221(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Essentially, this section states that a visa cannot be issued to anyone whose application does not appear to the Consular Officer to meet the requirements of the INA or of the regulations thereunder." 1) If anyone on this forum unfortunately received a denial too, can you possibly share what the rejection letter stated. I want to know how unique my case is, or if this is a blanket statement they make on most rejection letters. 2) A friend of mine in USA is getting married next month, and is inviting me. If I applied for a visit visa now (i.e 2 months after H1B rejection), what are my chances of B2 approval. Any advice on this process? I have already got a job here in India and will also get a letter from my employer stating that I am working for them and will be on leave for 10 days in December. So it gives a valid reason for my return. Of course I will put together other documentation as well, family ties, bank balance, invitation card/letter, etc. Would really love to hear your thoughts/suggestions for my case. All help appreciated. Thanks so much!!
