thank you for the post. really made me comfortable to handle the DHS TNC. as a new H1 employee it is daunting to see so many twists and turns at every stage. ok enough of ranting, coming to the issue
I recently accepted a full time role and started at the new employer after receiving the receipt of H1 transfer application(under premium processing). In a weeks time, my manager called me and said that they have received a DHS TNC(tentative non-confirmation) after initiating E-Verify. Like the above case, all the details in Further Action Notice (FAN) was correct except blank “A Number” field. The employer said I should contest and contact DHS after the case was referred by them.
I contacted DHS the same day the case was referred. DHS asked me for the receipt number of the H1 transfer. On the call DHS confirmed that the H1 transfer application was approved although advised that it will take a day to reflect in the case tracker. DHS asked me to inform the employer to check the case in E-Verify for the updated status. That’s all. Call with DHS ended. For my satisfaction, I ran the E-Verify self check in the DHS portal and found that I’m authorized to work
On the day when I’m informed of DHS E-Verify TNC, FAN, A number, I panicked. But after reading about E-Verify, some blog posts about TNC especially the above, I felt better.
