Help Me Guys if you had similar issues


Recommended Posts

I graduated form a US university in 2012 in Mechanical Engineering. Found a full time job in IT field right after gradaution. My company filed H1B for this position and i got RFE for education evaluation. After showing proof that I took computer courses (by providing three Letter Of Recommendation from 3 different professors) and had job experience form my previous job at university, my H1B petition was approved. 

I want to go back to my country for a vacation but I am quite worried that my visa might get rejected for the very same reason of my work being not directly related to the field of my study. I want to go to Canada for stamping but kind of skeptic about it. Did anybody face similar issues? If yes, what happened, please let me know. 



Thanks in advance.

Hi Ranjan,


If what you said is true, then 80% of the IT professionals working in the US on H1B (especially those with a US Masters) must return to their home countries because they DO NOT possess a degree in Computer Science. I know people with Electrical, Civil, Chemical, Mechanical amd even Pharmacy degrees who got H1 approvals and their visa stamped. That said, it is a matter of pure luck at the Consulate, again.

I suggest that you consult an attorney before taking any step forward.
