My h1b got picked in April 2015, but I went for my stamping in October 2016. It was placed under 221g and last week I received a mail saying that my visa has been rejected and that I have one year to submit further evidence for my visa to get approved.
Last week I applied for a visitor’s visa but it was rejected because the officer found inconsistencies in my H1 application.
Until my H1 application is resolved, can’t I apply for other visas to visit USA? I applied for B1 for a casual visit to USA, and not from any company’s behalf.
Also, if H1 is under 221g can my application be cancelled by the employer? Would it affect my future visa applications to US in any way?
