Lost job while H1b stamping in process?


Recommended Posts


I have applied for H1B stamping (dropbox) yesterday in my home country India, but today I got call that this week would be my last week in the Company because of roll-off from client.

How do I go ahead in my current situation? Do I need to inform the consulate of my termination.
Since I am in home country, I don't think the 60 day grace period is applicable.

Also in future, do I have to go through H1b lottery process again?

Thanks in advance.

It is the employers remit to inform USCIS. You do not need to do anything. If the visa comes through within the week, you have done nothing wrong. You are presumably awaiting written confirmation about the matter since a phone call alone is not conclusive. Get your stamp and get another H1 sponsor and for a total of 6 years in H1 STATUS, you will not be subject to the cap.
