I entered the US On the 4th of April, which means my current status is valid only until the 3rd of October, About a month from now.

Because I need to maintain my B-2 Status while waiting for a F-1 approval, I have to submit an I-539 form twice,

B1 in lieu of H1B rejected - 214(b) refusal

Aug 28th 2017
I am working with a multinational automotive company in India. Recently my company processed my VISA for a short term work in US(3months). It was B1 in lieu of H1B but got rejected citing 214(b) clause. I have no idea why it got rejected as the consular officer didnt ask me much questions.

Now my company is attempting me to send in L1B. The span of...

Getting B1 visa after DV lottery DS260 submission

Jun 23rd 2017
Hello,

As winners of the lottery, me and my wife, we have already sent all the forms and are now waiting for an interview.
But suddenly my wife needs to travel to the US for a couple of weeks for a business trip. She's planning to tell the truth to the VO - there's absolutely no desire to stay there illegally, and her husband stays at home during her trip - but still, I suppose winning a lottery and submitting forms is seen as confirmed immigration intent which is hard to overcome for a...
