Topic: H1B visa stamping vs Dropbox

Here was my timeline (if it helps you) -

Jan 02nd- Went for Drop-box at US Consulate - Hyderabad.
Jan 05th- Received email from consulate to appear for fingerprinting and visa interview process on Jan 18th. Yes, they only gave me the appointment date and time; I didn't schedule this one.
Jan 18th- Appeared for both the process (today) . Officer verbally confirmed the visa has been approved.

Waiting for email to pickup the passport with visa stamped!!

Topic: H1B visa stamping vs Dropbox

As far as I know there's no provision to choose between dropbox and consular processing (visa interview) while scheduling the interview (even I tried that one). It will be based on 7-8 questions for checking the eligibility for Interview waiver (Dropbox) which will decide whether you are eligible or not.

So I would suggest to go for Dropbox first and in next 4-5 days, you will receive an email from consulate that you will need to appear for fingerprinting and visa interview process if they feels your case needs further review. If you're lucky and there's no need for interview process, you might get your passport with visa stamped in 4-5 business days and will avoid unnecessary trouble of facing interview process.

All the best!!!

Topic: H1B Drop box @hyderabad

That's true. At Hyderabad consulate, you will need to take old petition copy (at least the last petition copy which had visa stamped) and the new one. If there was multiple employer job/petition in between visa stamped and new one then you have to take all the petition copy.

For photos, please follow the instruction.... 70% face with 30% body in 2x2 size photos otherwise you will have to get another one. There's a shop just next to VAC in Hyderabad who takes Rs. 200 for 4 photographs but he is aware of the size and requirement of visa photos. Just in case, your photos are per specification, then you can get it at that shop.

Rest of the document as you mentioned would be sufficient but keep all the other documents handy just in case they want to see. I guess you don't want to visit VAC multiple times for the same thing. :)

Since you will be going with spouse and kid, I would recommend you to reach early so that you don't have to wait for long.

The same shopkeeper takes around Rs. 50 for keeping the bag and the car parking is available at some cost.

All the best for visa stamping!!!

Congratulations!

I guess you will have to wait for hard copy of PERM certification. Then only, you can move forward with I-140 in Premium processing and then H1B in Premium.

Per my understanding, we can't file I-140 and H1B extension (even in Premium) simultaneously. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm also in same boat and currently waiting for hard copy of PERM. Maxout date (with recapture) - Feb 19th, 2018.

Topic: Rgding H1B stamping

Assuming that your current employer doesn't revoke existing I-797 and I-94 expiration date is not yet met (June/July 2018?), then you should be good to travel outside US and come back. But please keep the new I-797 handy as Officer at POE might ask you whether you're still continuing with the same employer or not. If they ask for new I-797, then you have to produce it to them so that they will give you new I-94 expiration date based on the new I-797.

You may want to check with attorney once before you plan for any visit outside US.

Really 324 days.... wow!!

I guess you will need to send another query request to DoL in that case. I guess it doesn't harm to send an email or request but you can check with your attorney once.

Topic: H1B correction at local CBP ??

You will need to send an email with the passport and latest I-797 copy to CBP I-94 correction ID 'OR' International Airport/POE (usually they have I-94 correction center) for getting this corrected. Unfortunately, the ID depends on the POE (or nearest one). If it is Chicago, then it's i94chi@cbp.dhs.gov.

Just in case they don't correct the I-94 on email request, then you would've to travel outside US and come back before Sept 2018.

Unfortunately, there is not set timeline for Regular processing as of now, no matters if you're applying for the 1st time or responding to RFE. It can be one month, 4 months or 6 months or anything.

Topic: Company Merged , DS 160 Petitioner

I would suggest to check with your attorney about the DS-160 form fill-up.
As per my understanding, I think you will definitely need an amendment due to company name change. Once you get the new approval notice, then DS-160 will follow the same i.e. new company name. USCIS doesn't care whether your old company was merged or taken over by some other company. They will go by the I-129 filed by your employer and the approval notice you received.

Somebody with same situation in the past might be able to answer your query clearly but the first and foremost person to talk is your employer and attorney.

All the best!
