Post process after RFE in H1 interview

Hi All,

I went to H1B interview on 1st week of Jan 2016. I did not have my client letter and project description as my immigration team is not able to get the invite letter.

The counselor requested me for client letter and Project description after asking basic questions on salary, client, location etc…

He gave the passport back and gave a blue slip with the following documents checked in the check box.

a. Client letter

b. Project description

c. Contract letter between my comp and client

Now the client has not renewal of our company’s contract and it ends by August 2016. My company/immigration team is not at all processing my RFE.

What is the time frame to process such blue slip/ RFE?

Chances of H1b Approval for these case?

If my immigration team process what should they do get the visa approved?

Will I able to process my visa outside my organization?

There is no specific timeframe within which this needs to process.

If requested documents are not submitted, then chance is 0

If the current project has ended, they should find a new project, then file LCA for the new location followed by H-1 amendment. You can then re-appear for stamping using the H-1 amendment petition. Make sure you have client letter for the new one

Yes, another employer can file cap-exempt petition for you using current approval notice as reference.

Thanks for the detailed explanation… If I have to process from other organization what is the detailed process? Should I get any document or approval from my organization to process ?

You need only 797 approval document from current organization. With that, a new employer can file a cap-exempt petition for you. The process is same as the new petition, with the difference it can be filed anytime and not subject to cap.

Hi Saurabh,

My company processed my 221g form after an year(4th Jan 2017) i got the blue slip(5th Jan 2016). They processed with an explanation stating that our company is still doing business with so so client. Also produced bills, invoice etc as supporting document…, But what was requested is Client invite letter, project description and contract letter.

On 17 th Jan 2017 I got a letter from Consulate to send the updated SOW of the project. our companyy has project extended till March for two employee in USA. But it was for development and I am into testing. Also the client is not ready to give any document since it is about to close.

How long is the vlaidity of the new 221g form?

I do not know what to do? My company has put my US VISA stamping ?

What should my company do If they could not get the updated SOW?

What will happen to the my CAP?
