Notes:
Been in the US for 9 years. Previously a F-1 PhD student. I have been pink slipped twice for that F-1 visa. The second time was TAL. Currently work at a national lab through a University in Quantum Optics and nanofabrication, since April 2018. STEM-extension for OPT changed to H1B in August, 2019. Traveled to India for stamping after end of year. Wasn't necessary but decided it would be good for international conferences. 3rd Jan, 2020 interview. Last question was: Do you work with any materials? (This generally means that TAL is being invoked) Given a pink slip and asked to submit all documents (Invitation letter, research, travel, publications). Sent an inquiry to [email protected] and [email protected] on 26th Jan. Got generic reply from both. Send second inquiry to CHENNAIHL on 21st Feb. No reply besides the automated one. I think they simply ignored me. 27/02/18: First status date change in 52 days. 28/02/18: Visa "Issued" and in "final processing"

F1 to H1B Visa interview was pretty quick with following questions asked: 1. Have you applied for this visa type before? 2. Purpose of visit to USA? 3. Work location? 4. Salary? 5. Have you worked on STEM before? VO said that he needs to check my previous travel. Handed passport back to me and gave a green slip. Later in the day I received an email asking to fill out DS 5535. Filled out and emailed on 13th Feb 2020 in .doc format. Just received an automated response I had received 221g back in 2012 for F1 stamping which was resolved in 3 weeks. CEAC Status as of 26th Feb: Last update timestamp 12th Feb

08/26 - Biometric 09/10 - Interview VO asked some basic questions like Were you in US before ? Who is your employer ? How many employees ? Who is your client ? He then asked for client letter, LCA and offer letter. I provided the later two and told him that I don't have client letter as this is in-house project and I will be working at petitioner's location instead of client location ? He then asked me to wait at the working area. I was called after 2 hours and a lady handed over me a 221G white slip with second box checked and passport also returned. 09/25 - Reached out to client 09/27 - Client responded 02/12/2020 - Received email from Hyd Consulate to submit passport 02/18/2020 - Passport submitted 02/20/2020 - Case status last updated to today's date. But still showing Administrative Processing 02/24/2020 - Case status changed to Issued at 4 PM. But Passport is still with US consulate/embassy. 02/25/2020 - Ready for pickup at 11:45 AM.
