Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm planning to go for H1B VISA Stamping in Jamaica.

 

History:

F1 in Aug 2005 at Chennai Consulate

DUI in Dec 2005 - pleaded Guilty

Got Certified Disposition Docs in 2008

H1 stamping with Employer 'X' in Delhi consulate - Feb 2009, Succesful

Took Full time with company "ABC" in Jun 2010, Transferred H1

Went for Marriage,

H1B Stamping in Sept 2010 in Hyderabad Consulate- Got 221 (G) Blue for DUI, Did medicals and submitted the required documents

After 104 Days got H1 B VISA.

With Same Company "ABC" till now.

Labor Completed, I 140 Completed.

Got H1 Extension till June 2016.

 

Thought of Expunging my Record, my Lawyer said like, It is a bad idea, as whenever i go to immigration they will look at the arrest record, So As per him, I need to unseal my record everytime I go to VISA STAMPING. There is a charge always for expunging and unsealing.

He said to wait till I get my GreenCard then Expunge a Record.

 

Now Planning For H1 Stamping in Jamaica.

 

Questions:

1.) Will there be any issue with my DUI arrest Record at Jamaica

    (It's been more than 7yrs now)

2.) What Chances of me to get a 221 G again in jamaica

3.) What Chances of referring to Medicals in Jamaica

 

Reply is verymuch appreciated.

 

Thanks,

My friend who has attended the  interview on Nov 14 2014 has the same situation, he has a DUI charge. He was asked to take the medicals and he submitted the documents on Nov 20th . They just asked to check the status in The tracker which shows administrative processing. Could you please advise on how  many days it is going to take and some pointers on this situation would be very helpful
