I was in the US on L1 from 2002 to 2005, in 2006 after coming back to India, I applied for H1B and during the interview process the officer in Chennai Embassy asked for additional documents to be submitted at VFS office, which I promptly did.
I registered online at USCIS to receive update if any but there was none and I gave up hope and stopped tracking it and also stopped contacting my employer.
I have job opening in the US but the employer does not sponsor H1B, so thought of checking my status and it still shows under Initial review. I dropped across email message to my employer just in case they received anything but no response from them either and the phone number that I had does not work also USCIS helpline will not provide any update when contacted and informed only employer can seek more information.
I would like to take your thoughts on my case.
- Whether the petition is expired and i should start afresh in which case quota is up.
- Or there can be something done with my old application.
Thanking you in advance and your valuable feedback is much appreciated.
