What is the difference between the terms, 1. H1 Petition Approval, 2. H1 status Granted and 3. Visa stamped? Consider the situations given below and kindly request you all to help me understand clearly.
Situation A: Beneficiary H1 Petition approved I797 received (Approval Notice) / Visa not stamped due to 221g yellow slip / Never travelled to US.
For the situation A are 1) and 2) both applicable?
If yes could i consider myself cap Counted in the last 6 years assuming my I797 Approval was Aug 2011?
