Balla balla apply garda garda yo paali mero H-1B pick bhaako ho. April ko 2nd week ma tero case lottery maa pick bhayo bhanera khabar aauda mutu le thaau chhodya thyo. However, USCIS has not given any further information as of now. I keep on checking the case number multiple times a day but there is no update. I have also checked with my lawyer but even he doesn't have any idea when I'll get the final approval letter. My current company had applied for my H-1B under the Master's cap. I am currently working on TPS. I have already received my Canadian visa (just in case, to go outside of the country for H-1B visa stamping because my lawyer said adjustment of status is not possible in my case since I only have TPS and no other status). TPS pahila I was working under OPT.
Has anyone received their approval (or any RFE) after your application passed the lottery for this year's H-1B program? I'd really appreciate any help or insights you can provide.
Okay! In my case, If I went for stamping out of country carrying AP and apply for Stamping. Let's say in worst case If the stamping was denied and I entered with TPS AP, can I still work in H1B status?
chornepali bro, I am so sorry to hear that. Did you discuss with your employer and lawyer to send them further evidence and fight back on your case?
Mero ta tyo ni aako chaina yaar. I fear, they might extend it to September samma ani siddhai reject garchha hola, without RFE or any other explanation. The rules are changing from September eleven bhanne sunya chu maile.
I haven't yet received the RFE letter. It usually takes 4-5 days. My employer's lawyer is so incompetent that I hope the RFE is just about some of her stupidity while filling and not about the specialty occupation.
September 11 memo only apply to the cases that are filed after September 11. If your case is filed before that date, they will not reject it without issuing a RFE of NOID. If you are concerned about timely approval of your case, switch to premium processing for good. Most probably you will get approval given your case is strong. Even if your case gets rejected, you will have enough time to act accordingly. Nowadays, it is not guaranteed that your case will be decided within 240 days.
