    H1B AT LONDON EMBASSY 2012 EXPERIENCES CLEARLY MENTIONED

    I wonder where you got the statistics ? It is frustrating how even FTE people are also harassed with RFE's and even rejected by US embassy. And I dont blame them completely, since some of us - Indians, have exploited rules and laws beyond the limits... On the other note, I do agree with WIWEQ about getting a FTE etc. .... Good luck with your case !
  2. I agree with immigrationseeker... I was in a similar situation and I was out of status for 14 days, I got RFE from USCIS asking for proof that I was maintaining proper status. And I was not. I received approved petition with out I-94 and was told to get visa stamped for new employer.

    Employer name on visa different than on the petition

    No. The frustration just continues with 4th visit to VFS office. They "VFS guys" have told me that they can not correct names in such cases and it should be OK. I will be traveling with the same visa to USA. please let me know if u decide to go for correction or have any updates on: shaunakonline at YahooDOT.com Thanks!

    Employer name on visa different than on the petition

    I visited VFS office in Mumbai twice in a row... Explaining all the things and all the correction documents: Cover letter, visa copy, I797, required documents from employer and visa correction fees.... These st*pid guys at VFS DONT know what they are doing!!! A guy at visa correction counter says I dont need an employer name correction, After I asked him, if he was sure, he made me wait 2 hours and asked his boss and again and said no need for correction! When I called the VFS helpdesk the very same day returning home, another guy said I have to go again and do the correction, my attorney in US send me letter mentioning the same thing.... I went again the very next day with all the documents and same guy sent me back home without accepting my request. When I mentioned that I was told by helpdesk person, he says I will need proof or email from him (WTF!!)... sent back home again.... I received a reply to my email from infousmumbai@blah blah after 3 days saying I need to do a visa correction..... I so frustrated with all the travel, efforts and money I have to put in for these non-sense people.... Now I have to visit the office for the 3rd time, on Monday with the email!!!

    rpdx, Good to see someone in similar situation got through the Immigration point in USA. I will check again with Visa correction facility and let you know! Most probably I am going to do what you did, carry a letter from Company stating the changes. I will keep posted! Thanks guys

    Employer name on visa different than on the petition

    hmaster, I agree with your two options. One of the guy at the counter said its ok to have different name but he sounded pretty unsure, I will visit the VFS visa correction facility again tommorrow. I feel, It would be safe bet to get it corrected under Visa correction facility at Mumbai VFS

    Mumbai - Case StatusTracker

    My interview was a decent one... Lots of questions but straight forward (You can refer ************ for sample question) I carried all my new & old employer docs pay stubs w-2 tax returns bank statements etc., Not a single doc was asked. Again this is my particular case, I would advise carry EVERYTHING you have with you. Wish you good luck!

    The number in I797 form

    I am not sure what that number is, but even my petition had a number in Beneficiary column and theres nothing wrong in that. On the other note, my guess is that is the Alien #. May be, not sure though.
  9. Hi, - I am working for ABC company (Direct employment) - My petition is filed by ABC (name on the approved I797 is "ABC") - Couple months back XYZ was kind of merged into ABC. I think below statement from my offer letter will make sense what I'm trying to say: " On behalf of 'ABC', a wholly owned subsidiary of 'XYZ', I would like to offer you blah blah..." Given above background: My visa stamp says: PN: XYZ... My I797 petition has a petitioner name: ABC I have emailed infousmumbai@vfshelpline.com with relevant documents. 1. Apart from that, What should I do to fix it ASAP ? 2. Can you go directly to Visa consulate, where you appeared for your visa interview without an appointment ? I am sure that, it is definitely a mistake from the consulate may be because the information is not reflected in their system. Thanks!

    Employer name on visa different than on the petition

    I talked with my employer and It is an error from VFS/PIMS. For some reason, the system is pulling the old information of the employer, which is before the new merger. What should I do in order to fix this error ? I have already emailed the issue with relevant photo copies to: infousmumbai@vfshelpline.com But they said it will take 2-3 days to process the email. Any suggestions ? Thanks!

    H1b RFE Response Review

    Talk to your employer/attorney and make them CALL USCIS and tell USCIS the same thing. Also, you can request the PP fee refund since USCIS did not process within 15 days and STILL process your application in the same way. You will get the PP fee back by rule on USCIS website.

    Canada visa requirements

    Why dont you select the Reason for visit as " OTHER- H1b visa stamping" instead of visiting friend ? I have not done that, but my friend did it in a mentioned way. I assume you are going for h1b stamping.
