Hi,i got H2b visa from the employer.but the employer asks me 300$.no problem about 300$ but how can i make sure?
And i make the interview but the interview asks me approval of petition i-129.what does it means and how can i get it.
The employer sends to me only the visa confirmation.
What should i do?
Please help to me

My STEM OPT is valid through June 2019. My H1b got picked and the online case status is ‘Case Received’. The immigration attorney also doesn’t have any update for me. I FEEL my HR/immigration attorney are not being proactive in communicating any information to me.

My wedding is arranged in December 2018 for which I need to travel to India.

  1. What are my chances of getting an RFE at this point?
  2. What is the time frame that I should expect the decision (in case there is no RFE).
  3. Will Consular processing help here?

Please let me know if there are other alternatives for me to travel in December.

My case status hasn’t changed from ‘Received’ since April. My petition is pending with the California WAC. I would like to travel outside the country in December. What will be the implications if petition is still pending?

Anyone here got the approval notice ? I have been waiting since May.

Did you get your approval? I am still waiting. Unfortunately, I am getting ‘validation error’ in their website since the beginning. My employer informed me that, there might be a 2 months delay, and that too passed. Anything to worry about? Hope anyone would have an answer. Awaiting for your response.

I am waiting since May. No change in status yet.

Thank you so much for the reply! I tried calling the USCIS Customer service. They will not disclose anything to us in person. Now, nothing can be done other than waiting.If any update in your status, kindly post.

Kindly Post if any updates…I am in the same boat
