Is visa interview needed?

Nov 28th 2016
I last entered USA In 2011 and my visa was stamped till Dec 2011. However, I have changed employers twice within that period and I plan to go back to India and return back again. Do I need to visit the Mumbai Embassy and get a new visa since my old visa expired in Dec 2011 or can I just do a dropbox. Is this the right site to schedule an interview http://www.ustraveldocs.com/in/in-niv-visarenew.asp ?

How to pay for visa application fee in Mumbai while in USA?

Nov 25th 2016
Hello,
I am at the point where I want to schedule an appointment and they are asking for the visa fees. When I try to pay via NEFT I see this message "CURRENTLY WE DO NOT ACCEPT OVERSEAS ELECTRONIC FUNDS TRANSFERS. YOU CAN ONLY MAKE THIS PAYMENT IF YOU MAINTAIN A RUPEE BANK ACCOUNT IN INDIA." How can I pay from USA since I don't have a bank account in India? Can a friend or family member pay for me and get the receipt number? Can they do this online?

Questions about contracting

Nov 10th 2016
Hello,
I came into the country 10 years ago and have had a full time position for the past 8 years in Silicon valley however my GC has not been done. I have been thinking about moving back to contracting the reason being that I don't want to worry about my GC process being reset because of a job loss. 10 years ago it was fairly easy to be a contractor. You found your own project and the company paid you 80% of what you made. Is this still the case? Also how easy is it to find contracts in...

H2B Visa, if extension is denied, can i work during appeal?

Nov 4th 2016
I currently have a H2B visa working in Guam. There's been an odd situation here where nearly all H2B's have been denied (we're talking 99.9%). The situation seems to be changing for the better recently, but my H2B extension will likely be denied.

My employer plans to appeal at least once. Would I be able to work during this time? If not, are my choices simply to stay here or go back home to the Philippines?

Thank you.

H1B Approved but H4 Extension is pending

Oct 23rd 2016
So Here is my situation

I was on H4 with valid I-94 (Expired on September 27, 2016). my employer filed my H1b in April which got approved on Oct 22, 2016. So, to not lose my immigration status i filed H4 Extension on September 22nd, 2016 which is still pending with USCIS. So my concern is what should i do next ? Pull my h4 application back ? Will that put me in out of status condition from September 27 till Oct 22, 2016 ? Do I need to leave country and renew my visa and I-94 ?

H1B Extension approved with expired I94. New I94 not back dated.

Oct 19th 2016
Hi All,

Need advise on the confusion with I94. My wife's H1b extension just got approved, where the case was that her I94 had expired a year ago, got an RFE for "limit of stay", filed response(attorney didn't inform if NPT was filed) and got approval. The old I94 expired in Sept 2015, visa was valid till Sept 25, 2016. Got new I94 with date of Sept 26, 2016 as start date.

What should we do with the 1 year gap in the I94 date? We were hoping that the new I94 will either be back dated or...

H1B stamping expired but I797 is valid

Oct 18th 2016
Hi,

I am planning to apply for visitor's visa for my parents. I am in US since 2012 and my H1B visa stamping on my passport was only until sept 2014. However, my new company applied extension and I got my I797 approved before my visa expired. The I797 does not have an I94 card (like earlier) and only says that it is valid till Sept 2017. I have not yet traveled outside US and hence was not required to go for extended H1 stamping. Is this situation normal to apply for my parent's visa? Or...
