Hi All

I am planning to come to India in October and my H1B stamping is expired in this month. As I am with Same employer. So I am planning to go to DROP BOX at Hyderabad.

I checked with my organization Immigration team. They suggested that me to go to Chennai since there is a problem with Hyderabad DROP BOX.

Below is the conversation email from immigration team on 27 July, 2017.
"The Post Locations for all DROPBOXs for any locations, by default it capturing Chennai.
As we have Selected Hyderabad for POST location. But, when associate Visited the Consulate ,they have Confirmed the Post Location as Chennai."

Did anyone recently go to Hyderabad Consulate DROP BOX, if yes, did you face any kind of issue with DROP BOX.

Your reply will be appreciated. So that i will plan from DROP BOX at Hyderabad.

Hello Team,

I have my h1b stamping ( new h1 first time stamping) in 2 weeks along with my spouse as H4 dependent. Is it advisable to go alone or along with spouse? Will there be any difference or impact (positive or negative)?

Can you share your experience if you have attended along with spouse/dependent.

Thanks in advance!!

Hi All,
My Current I-94 has been already expired on 06/29/2017. My Ex-employer filed my Extension along Dependents just few days before my I-94 expiration.

I got a job with another Employer and they filed my H1B Transfer alone on 07/14/2017 and I got the receipt number for the same. Now I joined my new employer with the Receipt Number.

Now the H1B extension petition filed by My Ex-employer has went in to RFE on 08/09/2017.

Also my Dependents extension with Transfer has not been filed by my new employer. And They are in US with me currently.

What will happen to my Transfer petition if my Ex-employer doesn't respond to RFE ?

What will happen to myself & Dependents if My Ex-employer withdrawn either H1B or H4 or both?
