I have attended interview on 1st Oct 2019 in chennai. VO asked basic questions, at last he asked for client invite letter, i have provided the one which is provided by my employer at the time of petition. It is on my employer letter head. He saw that document, then he said i need to send the end client invite letter , he has issued 221g blue slip by checking the options for the documents required to submit and returned the passport.
If i submit the end client invite letter, is there any chances that my visa get approved.
Can i have hopes on this.
I had attended visa stamping interview in Chennai and they gave a 221g blue slip with no documents requested…
Sep 11th 2019-
VO asked basic questions like, who is your petitioner, whats your US Salary, Client location, Client name, How many children, highest degree, Asked for a client letter.
I gave my ECL and it was on Clients letter head and VO asked it shows only till Dec 2019 and i said "I have to go and get my extension done ".
Are you travelling together and i said Yes
VO took my ECL and went inside …came after some time and asked whether “Can he keep the ECL with him”…I said Yes and issued a blue slip
—Its been 30 + days now and no updates yet on the site and even my client manager wasn’t contacted yet …he is ready with all documents.
Its a EC model and have even got new ECL with 2020 dates.
I am a US local hire with i140 approved from Employer A and currently working with Employer B ( Joined on Jan 2019 and got visa approved on April 5th 2019 with 1 year visa and it gets over by Dec 2019).
I have my rents and car loans going on there and just came for vacation after 3.5 yrs for just 20 days and I’m struck now with my family in India…
Your expertise would help me a lot.
Anil…they returned my passports during the interview and did not ask any documents till.date and also my client wasnt contacted yet
Its more than a month now and still waiting…im worried since my visa gets over by dec 2019 and need to be ter in US so that i can file my extension
It would be a fresh h1b right if its beyond i797 …since im on my seventh year…or will it be a extension…but just oraying it should be done bfore that…i have a 2 yr old girl and have loads of things left ther and credit card payments ,loans etc…as of now its around 6 weeks now
I have submitted soft copy of the client invite letter on Oct 14 2019 to Chennai Visa office email id. Around 5th Nov US Visa office sent a verification email to the person mentioned in the client letter, Client replied with all the details.
On 21st Nov got email from Chennai Visa office to send my passport along with copy of the email. I have submitted my passport.
Hi Anil, thanks . I am getting multiple and different answers for this amendment . Few say file amendment n travel, others say get approval and travel. By the way what are the chances of success rate for amendment as this is my fresh h1b.
You are getting different answers because you can enter US with current valid visa stamp.
But, if you answer that you are going to work for a different client than what’s mentioned on your H1B approval, Immigration officer can deny your entry. If that happens, you will have a bad record on your name.
That’s why i said ‘safest’ option.
Amendment success rate depends on your Employer paperwork. There is no one spoon that can measure all amendment applications.
Hi @Anil.Gupta, I have a valid visa stamped for client A, i haven’t travelled US yet. If I initiate amendment process for different client from India, if US Embassy approve the amendemnt, do i need to go again for stamping.?
