Thanks for helping people with your knowledge.
Could you please advise on my case
I went to H1b interview on Jan 2nd week, mine is EVC model. I have i140 approved.
Question asked were pretty simple like salary, location and employer name, is my son a US citizen etc.
Then VO asked, do I have a mid-vendor, I said yes and asked for end client letter. Which I gave.
He asked when did I come to India, I said in April2019, there was a pause from his side, he did not ask me what I was doing in India.
In fact I was working for the same client wile in India. He went inside with client letter and came with a number on blue 221G
We were told they don’t need any documents from us, once the admin process is complete they will contact us, Our passports were returned.
Why is my client or mid vendor not contacted yet, my colleague who went in December holiday time was issued 221g and the very next day his mid-vendor got all the questions.
In my client letter, there was HR signature, address and HR name, but contact details like email or phone number was missing. It was issued on company letter head but there was no phone number.
I am assuming this could be a reason for delay, however a single google search with a client name will give full details plus contact details of the HR signed it. Will they not do these verifications with info already available in their data base? My client is big with more than 50K employees worldwide plus they have sponsored many H1 & L1 visas.
Since I returned to India in April2019 and there was a gap for almost 10 months, is this a issue? I have worked for the same client thru same company since last 6.5 years. I was also supporting the same vendor from India all these months.
During my petition approval stage which happened from India using my I140, they issued a RFE to submit client letter, which we did and my case got approved. This happened end of Nov 2019.
Why is that the same client letter is retained again for further investigation?
Is there a way they can verify and validate all the details without contacting client or mid-vendor?
Note: My salary is also above L2 wage level for the job type.
Please advise, Thanks for your help!
