Hi Ramana,

Please look into my issue.
I am on F1 visa, currently on STEM OPT. I got married five months back and i came back US. I am planning to get F2 visa stamping for my wife, But my wife has already attended H1B stamping couple of months back from Hyderabad, India and she got 221G. ( Its a complete New H1B filed by an employer and she never been to US previously).
Her H1B 221G says need administrative processing but till now no response has heard from US Consulate Office either by her or her employer.
At this point what kind of questions are going to be raised by the V.O. in her case for F2 visa stamping and how to handle this properly. Or Is it a right time to go for F2 visa!

Hi Raman,

Seek your urgent help/advise.

My last working day was 10/Mar/2018. Grace period is until 7/May/208. My H1B started on 10/Jun/2015 and current extension is till 01/2019 with I94 until 04/2019. Now I got a job offer with New Company A who is filling my H1B Transfer this week and I have not yet started my job with A. I m expecting a better offer from New Company B, which I am interested for - however by the time I receive filed H1B Receipt by Company B, it may cross 7/May. So, Do I have to join Company A, just to activate my H1B filed by Company A, OR I can simply wait till Company B to file and send me H1B receipt and I start working at Company B (pass Company A & not join at all ) - PLEASE ADVISE.Also, Can I start working with the Receipt or full approval is required?

Also is it possible that, when I receive the approval from Employer A or even Employer B, USCIS may give a an Approval with out updated I94, by which I will have to go to India to get is stamped? PLEASE ADVISE - Thanks.

Hello Ramanan,

Hope you are doing well!

We have a position in the US with our client.
The petition which I am talking about is filed for the same client. We didn't have a position until December 2017, but now we have position with our client.

I had a discussion with our immigration team, they said - we can file extension only if I have travelled to the US at least once with the petition.

Pls suggest.

Note: current petition is expired on 31st December 2017.

Thank you very much!!!

Hello Ramanan,
Hope you are doing good, My friend did a small mistake in OPT application form and she got pre-completion OPT. Now, what would she do with this? Do we need to re-apply for the OPT?

Hello Ramana,
This is Abhinand, my opt was denied due to the expired date on OPT i20, so my university people asked me to reapply for the OPT so I reapplied by paying the full fee the second time. Now how many days it would take for the process?
