I went to USPS and tracking was bad.
You can track the package till it enters India and after which they use Indian Postal Service Express service locally. So, there was no tracking available from Mumbai to Trichy.
About 1 Week after they received the package, USPS website updated saying package was delivered.
Sent Package on Saturday Afternoon and they received it on Thursday.
If you need piece of mind and track the package all the way, go with Fedex
2 Weeks back my teammate sent Visa documents to his parents through Fedex
Fedex : ( Friday Evening and reached them on Thursday Evening) - Paid $102
Assuming that, are you saying that I can go to a consulate, get a h1 stamp and reenter on h1 ? and by doing so I WILL NOT jeopardize my AOS?
Sorry to be a pain.
I am just trying to understand this properly.
I do not intend trouble.
Any replies that you guys are giving is very much appreciated.
Hi - I was in a similar situation as you:
In 2009: I entered using H1 and my wife entered using AP. No hassles. It was a smooth process. My wife has derivative status on my 485.
In 2010: We both entered using AP. I am using H1 for work & my wife is using EAD for work. My H1 was renewed at the end of 2009 but I thought that going to Mumbai was wasting time and 2 days of my precious vacation so I did not get the stamp but entered using AP. I can still use my H1 for work authorization which I am doing right now.
No worries, keep your H1 as a backup if you need. Enter using AP. Dont waste time and money paying a visit to the consulate, you are just gifting away $140, you can do that later if the need comes.
Here is a question.
Can somebody join an MBA program full time at one's own expense, while on H1B and with 485 pending.
I can see more scope in my company if I have an MBA. Also company is not doing very well.
So, can I join a school till I get my MBA.
How does this reflect on my H1B and pending GC, if company is not paying my salary. I plan to take leave and come back again after the program, but be on payroll.
Well, if your H1B is based on approved 140 (post 6 years), even that gets invalidated when your 485 is denied due to revocation of I-140.
Now that is news to me. Can any attorneys confirm this?
emailed my HR and in turn asked lawyer -> advice -> wait for 90 days. if not, then we can ask USCIS.
in ur case, already 90 days.
go ask USCIS. u may have to give them proof of UPS or FedEx receipt
Before I slowly forget all the various pain points from the past, I'm going to add this one detail that people usually neglect:
The new process requires you to deposit a the visa processing fees at a local branch of Nova Scotia Bank and get a deposit slip to submit with the visa application when you go into the consulate. Most banks open at 9 am - 10 am. So if you have an early appointment, be sure to go there the previous business day and get the fees stuff taken care of. If not, you will find yourself scrambling to get this done at the last minute.
EB3-I, PD: Dec2003
suggest you read the ombudsman report.
and yes the numbers available were higher because
1. a recapture was in progress
2. recaptured visas were fifo not by country quota
and country quota is deceptive. when ROW is current, eg last july, uscis gives out GC numbers by fifo availability not by country quota.
of course last july was a freak...not coming back anytime soon!
Has anybody seen this before. Is there any precedence that a company that receives large number of resumes for the position might cause issues? Even if they have done the due diligence to review all resumes and interview candidates that they deemed fit? Still not finding anybody worthwhile?
Any comments/ assistance would be most appreciated.
I would still file, as long as everything has been done properly, so that in case of an audit a proper response can be given. IT jobs usually have special requirements for the job, they require a combination of hardware and software skills for the job. The employer might receive several resumes, the question is if any of them qualify for the job. If you recieve qualified resumes you obviously cannot proceed. I have noticed even in this market that it is still difficult to find candidates who have a certain combination of skill sets, especially if several years of experience is required in the use of these skills. If this is a non-IT job then obviously the job has to be evaluated and the resumes have to be evaluated to see if their are any special requirements and if the applicants qualify.
No they are NOT if you are talking about immigration!They are highly passionate and vocal in support for their own country and its leader (well are we???). Only reason they are enjoying immigration benfits is due to the US policy towards Cuba and its regime.
Well I do agree with you that we should avoid highlighting such issues and channelize our time and efforts towards the betterment of our own cause.
Immigration Voice: President's vision on immigration "in the right direction"
Immigration Voice (ImmigrationVoice.org - Home (http://www.ImmigrationVoice.org)) applauds the President’s recognition of our broken immigration system that allows for educating foreign nationals in the best universities this country has to offer and refrain from utilizing the investment made on them. The President’s call to reform in his State of the Union speech last night is an acknowledgement that has been decades in the making, he took it a step further by rightly calling out on policies that “makes no sense.” His vision and continued support on finding solutions to fix these problems is a step in the right direction.
America’s competitiveness and the initiative of keeping the jobs in the US, from being outsourced rests with the highly educated and skilled labor force within the country. The President’s vision of “let’s stop expelling talented, responsible young people who can staff our research labs, start new businesses, and further enrich this nation" is commendable. The highly educated foreign nationals are forced to seek employment elsewhere due to the long waiting periods in attaining green cards. Nearly a million people are stuck in the process and their prime creative years are submerged in the uncertainties of acquiring permanent residency in the country, and their entrepreneurial ventures are curtailed. The need for a bipartisan solution to reform the employment based green card systems that American employers use to recruit and retain the best and the brightest from around the world has become an immediate necessity.
As the President noted, “No workers - no workers are more productive than ours. No country has more successful companies or grants more patents to inventors and entrepreneurs. We're the home to the world's best colleges and universities, where more students come to study than any place on Earth.” Immigrants come to this country with the very dream the President described, to be a part of the great American workforce, working hard and giving their very best to the country. Aman Kapoor, Immigration Voice founder and president stated, “By tying the economic prosperity with innovation, President Obama has successfully merged the prosperity of our economy with fixing employment based immigration and the tremendous talents that is just waiting to be unleashed.”
Immigration Voice is greatly honored to work with the Congress and the Administration in finding solutions to the root problems of the backlogs and help clear a path for talented immigrants to contribute to the cutting edge in American innovation and exceptionalism.
Immigration Voice is a non-profit, national grassroots organization promoting awareness and providing solutions to fix the problems faced by high skilled legal immigrants in the employment based immigration system. Learn more at ImmigrationVoice.org - Home (http://www.immigrationvoice.org)
i dont know where to write this topic , if it is wrong place please excuse me.
i completed my b.tech in computers. i am on h4 . recently i got ead.
here is my question
by using ead what type of jobs i can do . if software side jobs means again i have to read any subject some time . but i need job quickly because we were in some financially tight position.
please suggest me any decent type jobs like data entry or data base entry jobs etc ...something related to my education is preferable .
those who know correctly experts please suggest . bcz this will be helpful for all who is from h4 to ead.
i will really appriciate your help .thank you in advance.:mad:
Since you have EAD , You can take up any job you want/get from the immigration point of view.
Since you seem to prefer the jobs that suite your qualification (B.Tech Computers) , you can take up programming and/or System Analysis kind of jobs. Do you have any work experience ?
Although you can take up a data entry job, it will not generally pay much and you will not be using your full potential (B.Tech)
You can start by taking some training (If you have not done so already). Post your resume in the job sites suggested above. Some companies take people with no experience also as long as you have the potential. My suggestion would be to be honest.
It is better to spread the word in your friend circle that you are looking for a job in certain areas. Some times these personal connections give you good job positions leads.
Improving the communication skills and technical skills in some areas is a good starting point.
where di u file? and did u efile?
"You don't have it yet. You can ignore it. "
Anybody having a different opinion ?
"Click in the flash to activate it and move the mouse to rotate the camera." sounds mighty fine to me. Thanks kirupa :)
I still don't see it...hope its not my cache issue. Will clear it and try again.
