Immigration Issues/H1 extension
Hello Mr. Krishnan,
I had H1 visa and it got expired on 30th September 2008. But before it expired I applied for H1 extension. Now the situation is that because of family problem I came back to India on 24th September 2008. I am still in India (as of 17th October 2008) and I am waiting for approval of my H1 extension.
Do you think US immigration will approve my H1 extension?
In case if they approve my H1 extension then what all documents I need to take Indian embassy for stamping? (I am in Mumbai).
Another problem is that I donít have a Job in USA and because of that my pay stubs are generated from October 2008, do you think Pay stubs will be a problem at the time of stamping?
My another question is How much time it will take to approve or reject H1 extension?
I am desperately looking for an answer here, I would really appreciate your reply.
When you get the extension approved and your employer still has a job opening, you need to apply for a H visa. You need to take the documents that you took the first time when you applied for the H visa. Since you are not in the US since Sept 2008 you need not show paystubs after that date. It is taking around 3-4 months for processing the H application.
Best of luck.
