Hi ImmiGeek

On August 10 2016, we sent you a duplicate notice about a decision on your Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, Receipt Number WACXXXXXXXX, or describing how we will process the case if it is still pending. Your case is located at our California Service Center location. Please follow any instructions in the notice.

What does this status mean .. Wether my Case is approved or not...?

hi Immigeek

My H1B was stamped in December 2016. I work with an IT company in India. I have not travelled to US on this visa from my company.

1. I want to know if i can directly apply to other US companies (who might be willing to sponsor my visa) and then have it transferred ? Does the original petitioner (my current company in this case) have the right to cancel the petition if i quit and seek visa transfer ?

2. If i change companies in India itself , can i have my visa transferred in same way ?

Hi Immi Geek...I have applied for H1B last year and got visa stamped for one year only till Nov 30th 2017...Due to personal reasons I cannot travel this year...My questions are:
1.As per current rules can we apply for cap exempt visa next year if I have a sponsor
2.Somewhere I read we need to travel atleast once to US before H1B expires to apply for cap exempt visa transfer.Is that true?
3.Is there a chance that USCIS does not allow cap exemption as I did not work for my employer in visa period
4.Will answers to above questions hold good even if my current employer revokes visa

Hi ImmiGEEK,

I am well know consulting firm and end client is also very famous , but my h1b got denied,.. so my company instead of appealing, file new h1b cap exempt and again for RFE. waiting for RFE reason.

What you think, my previous denied is impacting my future decision ?

Hi ImmiGeek,
I got the H1B receipt, it is valid from Oct 20, 2016 to Sep 20, 2017.

Have to attend the consulate interview, is there any specific time period within which you have to attend the interview?

Shall I attend the consulate interview for visa stamping by May 2017??

Please let me know regarding it.

Ramesh: PM me your case actual number, I will check its history.
At minimum it could be RFE, at worst it could be Intent to deny. So, with the vague collective term "Action", we cant interpret a concrete opinion. So, keep your fingers crossed and wish for the good luck.(dont post your actual petition number here, just email me in private message)

My H1B case status is changed to
