  1. Hello. 


    I am on OPT extension and expires on Dec 31st 2014. I am working for Non Profit Organization which is filing a Non profit H1 now and that effective from Jan 1st 2015, if it gets approved. This H1 is non transferable and doesn't come under quota.



    I also have approved quota H1b from a different employer, effective date Oct 1st 2014, So I can't use that  to work at this Organization.


    Now the issue is


    " As I am on OPT and H1 got approved, I came to know that, my status will automatically change from OPT to  H1B. So then I can't work for the Organization.


    I want now


    1. Whether I can continue on OPT till Dec 31st 2014 with out changing the status to H1B, So that in the mean time I will get my approved Organization H1B,effective start date Jan 1st 2015.
    2. If in case, my status automatically changed to H1B on OCT 1st 2014, Can I changed it back to OPT because I don't want to use that H1B.
    3. If it doesn't change back to OPT, then what Can I do to go forward.

    Could you please  suggest me on the above issues. 


    Thank you.

  3. Hi anandam ,


    i saw a friend who is going to stamping on Oct 17th and his client gave him his client letter but mentioned the projetc would end by Feb 2013 .


    he is working since march 2012 there , so he took with him the contract paper that teh client will keep in his cube on the first day of joining showing the end date as aug 2012 to prove that his project is  extending from then .



    Not sure how long you have been with the client ..just my 2 cents opinion .

  4. Hi  Oshiv/Rahul 


    Thanks for your inputs . 


    I have booked the date long back in july the thing is i am hearing if the shut down continues then Oct 17 the debt ceiling would take place and then wondering whether that would show effect in complete shutdown of govt agencies and would delay or keep on hold . 


    Thats my main concern for planning to reschedule 


    thanks once again 

  5. Hello Guys ,


    My advice is when you see issued on CEAC website and do not see the way bill number on CSC website  or didnot get the email from loomis


    " Go to your passport pick up location brampton/Markham and then show then your license or they can track even with teh reference id that u have on the CSC website log in account "


    They can tell you whether any tracking started for your passport or not .


    Plz check emails even in SPAM . I got an email to my spam folder as i gave my gmail at 12:20am . After issues it takes one more extra day to get way bill number or the email .



  6. Hi ,


    I submitted my DS160 to the Vancover Consulate and i got the confirmation email .


    Now if i want to reschedule it to another consulate like toronto or ottawa i can do it from CSC website for the appointment timings but how about the DS160 .


    1) Do i need to fill in new one and edit the CSC website to reflect my new DS160 number

    2) Can i use the already submitted DS 160 as the databse to retrieve them all are same if just only the consulate diffrence .



    Please leave your thoughts ..Thanks in Advance .
