    Visa interview appointment on old H1?? New one not yet approved !!

    hi Could someone please advise me on the following situation:

    I have an H1 from company A and my job is getting over on 31st March. I recently applied for H1 transfer with company B which will take atleast 2 months to come. I have to go to India for 2 months. I was planning to come back on my new H1 after getting it stamped. Now the problem is if I wait till my new H1 approval comes which will be sometime in June, I won't get any interveiw date for another 4-5 months i.e. until Oct-Dec. But I want to come back in July. Is it possible that I take the date based on the current H1 and the petition no and change that in the application once I get the new H1?? Would they let me do it without taking the new date?

    I would highly appreciate an early reply. Even if I go for premium processing, it will take atleast 20 days and by then the visa dates would go far back.

    Thanks
    Sid

    Travel to India before H1 transfer approval but after getting receipt

    Hi guys

    Could someone please advise me on H1 transfer. I am working for company A and my current job is getting over on 31st march. Company B which is a recruiting company is doing my H1 transfer starting next week. So I'll get the H1 receipt within 15 days. After that I am going to India on 12th April and will go for stamping in Delhi once the company B sends me all the approval documents in India. My question is would there be a problem in getting my new h1 visa stamped as I leave the country before getting the approval (but after getting the receipt)? I won't have any pay stubs from the new job as I will be starting my work only after I come back. But I'll have all the pay stubs till March 31st from my previous job. I would appreciate if someone can tell me the problems involved in this and ofcourse the solution (other than going for premium processing).

    Thanks
    Sid

    H1 transfer

    Hi
    I came to US on H4, did masters here.
    A Consulting company sponsored me H1 and it got approved in October 2005.
    I got an offer with company B in Novemeber 2005(a reputed firm).
    So my new employer applied for H1 transfer a month later without any paystubs.
    Now I am waiting for the H1 transfer approval.

    So I havent started working with company A and waiting for company B's H1.
    If there is anyone with similar kind of issues can you please share your experiences.

    What's going on?

    I obtained my MBA from an American University with some of the study done in Europe.

    An American company that a close relation owns has subsequently fiiled an H1 petition. All the required processes were followed and they had actually tried to find an American Citizen or permanent resident and found none for several months.

    This was filed in September using premium processing and was supposed to take 10-15 days. It has taken the time from then to now with no explanation on the USCIS website. The lawyer who filed the petition was told that the case is under intense review!

    What does intense review and why could this happen and what is the implication. I have had to remain in the US for the period since then and I am unable to work or do anything and have had to pass opportunities elsewhere.

    One other matter of note is that the petition was filed during the grace period following the completion of my MBA. I was in fact still in status. According to info on the USCIS website petitions filed using normal processing have been treated but mine has had no explanations given except that it is under "intense review"!

    One other question I have is: Would an eventual refusal affect my ability to obtain a US visa or gain entry in the future?

    How to add another applicant - H4 Appointment

    I am on H1 status in US. I and my family went to India in the month of May 2005 and I returned back to US on July 2005. My family wanted to stay for long vacation. I took the appointment for them in Oct 2005 for Feb 2006. But when I was preparing online application, I did not see the option to add my son into my wife’s application.

    Is it ‘OK’ for my wife to go to consulate along with my son?.
    If not, what will be the way to attend the interview for both of them on Feb, 2006. Please don’t tell me to cancel this one and create new appointment. It’s very hard to get the appointment again, there are no open slots nearby.

    I assumed that since my wife is primary H4 applicant, we don’t need to add him in the appointment. But I remember there was provision to add another passport details in TT Services online application. Now I don’t see that option while creating new application.

    When I try to created new appointment with my son’s receipt number, VFS system did not accepted it.
    This Process was new to everyone in Oct 2005, I could not get the correct help from online. I was even getting error pages while creating the application.
    Now all I wanter to know is "Is it ‘OK’ for my wife to go to consulate along with my son?.” and let me know about steps to follow.


    Hoping to expect good answers from this forum.

    Thanks lot
    Madhu

    H4 Revalidation refused 221g

    We are married for 5 years. and My wife is also here with me in USA from 2001. And She had H4 Visa twice (Initial, then Extension) my baby is born in USA, and now My wife is in India for vacation. She has to get H4 revalidation for which she went to Chennai consulate on December14th.
    VO refused H4 for my wife --221g to get Original Payslips & good copy of my Passport. and mentioned to come back after January 31st 2006 any TWTH.

    Just want to check is there any one like me --never got any queries before (2 times---visa was given without any queries) and now for third extension (revalidation --H4) with 221g.

    Thanks
    Mukunda
