H1b, 221g for client letter verification @Hyd consulate
Hello,
I had my first h1b interview(f1 to h1) on Dec 13. After basic questions, VO asked me for client letter and I gave it to her. She gave me 221g and told me that my case is in administrative processing and she need to verify the client letter and passport returned. On Dec 21, my manager received email from the consulate and he responded on the same day. Since then there is no update. Did anyone experienced the same recently or know how long it will take for the consulate to respond.
Thank you.

Change in exchange rate after visa fee payment
Hi, I have H1 and H4 dropbox scheduled on Mar 28. I paid MRV fee earlier and was waiting for a slot. Now that slot is available exchange rate is changed. There is a difference of about INR 760. Could someone please advise how this difference is handled? I don't see any information anywhere.

Also,I selected Chennai consulate which has three dropbox locations- Kochi, Chennai, Bangalore. Does that mean I can go to one of these locations at scheduled time?

221(g): Your application requires additional administrative processing before a final decision can be made
Hi All,

I appeared for H1B Visa interview @ Hyderabad consulate on February 24,2020.

VO, asked for some basic questions , employer profile ,location & salary details.

Later handed over a 221g white slip with(i.e. A letter from US Chamber of Commerce or other NAM related entity) passport back(Case Created:23-Feb-2021 and it is showing as refused).

After some follow-ups with hydadmin, On Sep 29,2020, I got an email from Hyderabad consulate to submit passport and I submitted through drop box on October 4, 2021.

After that they called me and asked to send LCA, Project Description and Client/vendor documents (if any) to [email protected], which I did(I mailed the requested documents).

My passport returned without stamping and got the new 221g white slip(Your application requires additional administrative processing before a final decision can be made).

but after a week CEAC site shows as refused again(Case Last Updated:05-Oct-2021).

I was following up with them every month but the same response that it is under administrative processing and will take some time.

If anyone had same issue before please reply.

Change from H1B sponsoring employer A to a new Employer B on same fiscal year when selected in Lottery
Is it Ok to Change from H1B sponsoring employer A to a new Employer B on same fiscal year when selected in Lottery? Started working for Employer A with Change of status to H1B for 2-3 months and getting better opportunity from Employer B. I heard somewhere that if employer A withdraw the petition, you will become subject to CAP even after Employer B, H1B is approved based on already selected in CAP from employer A. Do we need to work for sponsoring employer for entire Visa fiscal year I mean until September? before attempting to change employer.

H1B Petition Revoked
Hi Team ,

I had my H1B visa from my previous company which was picked up in 2019. I travelled to US for a period of 6 months but had to come back to India due to personal reason.

During this period , I had switch to new Organization and now when I see on USCICS site I can see that my petition has been revoked.

Does that mean that my H1B has gone forever or is still there is any hope?

Thanks for your reply.

H4 visa interview under 14.
My Name is Krishna and I am in USA have valid visa till 12/31/2018. . Recently my spouse visited india along with my two girls under 14 for dropbox. US visa officer did not accept the dropbox for kids as their father is in USA and do not have valid visa. They accepted My wife documents for dropbox and got the visa.

Now my kids got separated from my profile and they got two individual profiles and I need to schedule for stamping.

My question is can one kid (under 14) adds another kid profile in her profile? what's the email address we need to use at the time of adding member.

Also do My spouse need to go two times to visa consulate one time for submitting photographs and another time for us visa interview?
