H1b visa holders staying more than 180 days outside of usa due to covid-19
I am staying outside of usa for around 150 days. Have valid stamped h1b visa. Employers says that I will not be able to work after 180 days and will put me into unpaid loa. Due to covid 19 is there any relaxation passed by usa govt regarding this 180 days rule?

But due to COVID 19 my family couldn’t register it but I still sent it to USCIS what you guys think will it be accepted hopefully by USCIS please provide me information in this regard.

NVC Interview wait time after documents approved

My wife's application was documentarily qualified on 11 Nov 2019.
I called NVC couple times in last 4 weeks and when asked query they replied it’s in queue waiting for interview .! US Embassy will let them know when they have interview slots and NVC will schedule but NVC can not estimate the timeline for an interview.

What's the approximate wait time for Spouse visa interview at Mumbai Embassy India?

Please share your experience.

Thank you .

Administrative Processing O1
Hi, what happened to me is super weird, I went for an interview in the Consular (with my O1 already approved) on Nov 12, in the time of the interview the officer told me everything is ok i have been approved and they will send me my passport in 3-4 days with the new visa in it. After 2.5 hours am receiving an email from the consular saying that "although you were advised at the time of your interview that your visa was approved, we will not be able to issue your visa right away nor confirm its approval at the moment, Rest assured that we will contact you when a determination has been made on your visa application case." without explaining the reason they did this and how long it will take. Now its been 6 weeks and I still did not receive my visa or any update on the administrative processing website.
Anyone on the same page? I do not know what it going on and I am worried since I might lose my job there. Anyone knowing how long I might wait? Guys am super worried about this.
