  1. My L1 is going to expire in June 2020, my H1 was picked last year but i hadn’t got the status changed yet. Can i get the change of status without leaving US now because traveling is out of question. How much time will that process take of submitting that petition for change of status and getting the result back?
  2. Hello, I am currently in India and stuck here due to 221g since last month. Currently, I cannot work from home. My H1B is expiring on April 8. H1 extension but in general filed as premium is suspended. Looking for suggestions about what should I do now. Does anyone have any useful information that can help or been through a similar situation? Should I keep hope on the visa front? Thank you.
  3. Hello, My H1 expires on May 10, is it ok to travel back to USA after April 14 and then apply for extension? Any thoughts?

Also will india allow my daughter who is a US citizen to enter with all the restriction .
  5. Hi all, I have few queries, please clarify My Visa Status: F1 -STEM OPT (valid until July 2nd 2020) My company applied for H-1B this year, picked in lottery and package will be sent (unfortunately no premium) to USCIS later this month. Do I need to have a backup plan ? If so what is recommended ? I am thinking of joining day 1 CPT college. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Is anybody else status says submitted still? I thought the resulta were gonna be announced on the 1rst april, anybody else has a submitted status for their H1B?
  7. Currently, I am working on two jobs simultaneously on STEM OPT. Expiry is Sept 2020. Employer A is non-profit and is filing for cap-exempt H1B. Employer B is a desi-consultancy and is filing for cap-subject H1B. If cap-exempt is approved first and thus if my status changes from F1 to H1, is there any way I can simultaneously continue working for consultancy-client till cap-subject is approved? I just want to have cap-subject H1 approved because in future it will be easy to change jobs compared to cap-exempt… Any help is appreciated! Thanks

  9. Subject: H1B COE Transfer - Premium Process Hello Friends, Regarding my H1B transfer, my company submitted response for RFE on March 24th and Status on USCIS website changed to "Received" on March 25th. It's been premium from beginning for my case. My Question: Usually Premium Processing result should be out in 15 calendar days. But due to COVID 19, do you think of any expected delays? Anyone is on the same boat and received results recently? Please let me know
  10. Asking for a friend, his visa and employment getting ended on the same day in June. What are the options to remain in US and continue working, considering the job market, and a possible recession, and If no job.... he has to leave the country. What are the options for him to be here till he gets a job.. ??
  11. Has anyone on H1B visa who lost their job in Feb, received a revocation notice from USCIS?
  12. Does anyone have an experience of going to a Day 1 CPT university and then getting selected for H1B in the second or third attempt ? Does day 1 CPT negatively impact your H1B visa eventually or is it a good route to pursue ?
  13. Hi, I have a question regarding H1B registration. This year has been the highest number of master's quota applications. Out 0f 275000, almost 40 % were in masters which is 110000. It has never been these many masters quotas. Last time out 2 or 3 masters petitions, one applicant would be picked. But this time, out of 5.5 applicants only 1 will be picked in the lottery as the registration process is easy. Previously, only serious applicants had to file H1b as they had to pay $4000. But now anybody could register for $10. I am not sure, just curious. Because it is just $10, is there a possibility even trolls could have registered to affect the results?
  14. H-1B related RFE issue date was 3 Jan 2020 and response date was 30 Mar 2020. Is my response date is extended for next 60 calendar day according to USCIS new announcement as it says "In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced that it is adopting a measure to assist applicants and petitioners who are responding to requests for evidence (RFEs) and notices of intent to deny (NOIDs) dated between March 1 and May 1, 2020. For applicants and petitioners who receive an RFE or NOID dated between March 1 and May 1, 2020, any responses submitted within 60 calendar days after the response deadline set forth in the RFE or NOID will be considered by USCIS before any action is taken." Did i miss my response date ?
  15. Hi, Is it necessary to response H1B RFE from the same attorney, who had file H1B Thanks
  16. I havent heard anything about my H1-B picked in the lottery yet. Does that mean its not picked?
  17. My h1b visa is expiring in Aug 2020 and I had a plan to travel to US in April for first time which could not happen due to corona outbreak? What are the options I have now?
  18. Hi All, I’m currently on H1B and I have two full time offers from two different companies. While the designation of my position in Company-A is exactly the same that I’m at with my current company, the designation at company-B is slightly different but is still related to my masters major. Can I accept both offers and initiate H1B transfer from both companies just to ensure atleast one gets through. Is there a possibility both could be approved when filed simultaneously and in that case what would be my options? Thanks in advance
  19. Can we check h1b lottery online ?? If yes please share the details .. Or our employer should notify us ?? Please suggest. TIA
  20. My H1B got denied in December 3019 and my employer has filed a MTR in January before the 30days. Till date he says he hasnt received the receipt number also the cheque was not cleared as well. Anyone in same boat ? What can i do to see if my case is being processed?

  22. Sub: h1b maxing out on 16th may2020, wants to avoid travel in this situation. hi, I am on H1b visa which is going to maxout on 16th may.

  23. Hi my h1b visa got approved last year on November 9th. My visa was filed under consular notice. My OPT extension ends on July 17 2020. I was told by my DSO and attorney that I have to get my h1b stamped before July 17 2020 if not I will go under out of status (because I was filed under consular notice and not change of status) and I can't continue with my current job. Due to the corona virus. I am not able to travel internationally to get my H1 visa stamped. Any suggestions? My attorney told they can file for "change of status(COS)" now, under which I can travel anytime after my OPT extension is expired to get my H1b stamped. They were going to file this under premium processing but now that premium processing is stopped they say it may take 4-5 months to get a reply from USCIS for my COS case by which my OPT extension might have expired. Any suggestions what I can do here?
  24. I had my interview on March 12th in Chennai. Interview went smooth and in the end VO said there are some flags in SEVIS history and handed me a slip stating "SEVIS Administrative Processing". I was asked if there was a semester gap or if I was ever out of status and I answered no. I was told these cases are common for F1 to H1-B and most of them are resolved in couple of weeks. Anybody in the same boat?
  25. does it matter if the approval came before Oct? Should the person still wait until Oct? can you answer this do we have to wait for october even if the approval came before that?
