Hi Saurabh and all,
A quick question!! Is it possible that a H1-B petition can be filed under L to H category if the person doesn’t possess any sort of L1 Visa or other Visa right from the start?
If you’ve understood the above question…I hope you might be able to answer and if not; here is a brief explanation.
My company has nominated me for a fresh H1-B Visa. For that I’ve submitted docs including client letter and all. After that, my LCA posting also completed and I got the notification from my company that my petition was sent to USCIS for filing. Later after 2 days; I got a mail from my company folks that my petition was successfully filed under L to H category and they have provided the WAC ID as well. (wacxxxxxxxxxxxx).
When I’ve checked back with my company folks, they told me that its a mistake that we’ve sent under L to H category, we are now checking the I-129 form and confirming that yours is a fresh H1-B application. HOW FAR CAN I BELIEVE THEM? When there is no Visa for me till now in my life; how can they file it under L to H? Moreover, my WAC ID says that my current status is: INITIAL REVIEW and my petition has reached them 2 weeks back. What is this confusion all about and if the petition would have filed under fresh H1-B category…When does my application reach DECISION stage?
Please help to clarify!!!
