Hello guys,

I am appearing for h1b stamping in few days, and I am a bit confused between Employer and Petitioner.

I am currently working for ABC Ltd. since past 3 years, and my petitioner is ABC Inc. (wholly owned US based subsidiary of ABC). ABC is a reputed IT services company in India. My question is:

1) If VO asks: "Duration with petitioner" should I mention that "it is a new opportunity with ABC Inc." or should I include 3 yrs of time spent with ABC Ltd.?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Hi,

I submitted my documents on 06/19/2017 at VFS Bangalore. As of 06/23/2017, the CEAC status is "Administrative Processing" and "passport received by consular section, and being prepared for delivery".

What does this mean? Does it mean I have to go for interview or CEAC status updates after some time?

I work as a FTE with a reputed company and working for the same employer since my first H1B.

Hi All,
I have attended the H1B interview on 16/06/2017, after few question and answers she has given white slip 221(g) and mentioned additional administrative processing is required. She has taken LCA and Project paln then handed over the passport.

Is anyone there with the same case. What would be the end result. If anyone faced the same thing in the past please share your experience.

Hi

I am really thankful for this immihelp forum.

Here is my experience:

Attended H1b Visa Interview on 12th June. This is my 4th H1b extension.

Questions are -
Employer Name, Designation, Salary, duration of employment with the Petitioner
Job Duties

VO asked me if i had any issues with immigration when i went to the USA on L1B in 2007.

I said yes and told him that i missed a document, for which they checked my details and cleared me.

Word of Advice:

Please make sure you answer everything honestly. And you can always clear if there are any misunderstandings.

Got my passport on 14th June.

All the best for everyone who is applying for Visa
