Hi,I got a 221G Admin Processing in Mumbai consulate and have been asked to submit client letter. I am unable to get a client letter as the project I was working in got closed. I have got a client letter from another direct client of my employer. As this client is in another location, my company has filed the LCA amendment for the new location and are awaiting the approval. After that, I understand an H1B petition amendment is required to be filed as per the process. However, my employer says that since I am currently outside the US, it is not required to file the H1B amendment now. They say the amendment can be filed once I return back to the US, and for now I can go ahead and submit the new client’s documents for stamping upon getting the LCA approval.Could the experts in this forum please let me know an opinion on this? Is it required to file and have the H1B petition amendment approved before submitting the documents in response to the 221G?Thank you!
As you are stuck in stamping, amendment is required in order to submit the client letter for the new location. If you don’t get amendment, then you will be submitting client letter for location A, while H-1 is approved for location B. This should not be the case.
