10 days after I came to US, I switched to a different employer (B), B filed for my H1B.
Received H1B approval, I-797B, it states:
The above petition has been approved for the classification requested. It has been determined that the named worker(s) is (are) not eligible for the requested extension of status. You will receive a separate notice explaining the reasons…
Since the worker(s) has (have) been found ineligible for an extension of stay, we have sent notification to the consulate shown above…
If a visa is issued, upon admission in this classification the worker will be authorized to be employed by petitioner for the authorized period.
Stamping through which I entered US is valid till Dec-2016, so is my I-94.
(i) Am I required to immediately go to a consulate (or consulate referred in 797B) and get the stamping or can say till I-94 is valid?
(ii) USCIS officer apparently saw my initial 10 days as out of status. Is it advisable to appeal that I wasn’t out of status for the 10 days?
