  • NOIR after H1 approval

    2015 April - H1 filed by company - 'EST-B' for an In-house project. Selected in Lottery

    2015 July - H1B Approved

    Early 2016 - EST-B moved office, but within the same County. Did not inform USCIS about address change

    Visa stamping delayed as EST-B was moving office and had delays in product development

    2016 Jun - USCIS visited EST-B’s old office address and did not find anybody there. Notice of intent to Revoke sent, which was not received till early Sept. NOIR is received for all H1s filed by EST-B

    2016 Aug - Visa stamping in India (unaware of the USCIS site visit) resulting in 221(g) with documents requested from EST-B. Address used on Visa application was the new address of EST-B

    2016 Oct - NOIR response sent by EST-B. Current H1B status is 'Response To USCIS' Request For Evidence Was Received’

    I am still in India


    When should EST-B respond to the 221(g) from the consulate. EST-B feels they should wait till the H1 is re-approved. Is it ok to respond to the 221(g) while waiting for USCIS
    Since the H1 was approved earlier, can I transfer the H1 to a new Employer ‘NEW-EST' using the 797 I have from EST-B?
    In the worst case situation if the H1 is revoked, will I have to go thru lottery again next year?

    Did you receive any update from USCIS yet? If so, how long did it take for the decision?
    Please let me know, it will be helpful.
