Urgent - Annotation field is blank on H1B Visa

Hello Saurabh & All,

I have received my passpord with Visa stamped. But Annotation field is blank I mean my Employer anme and Petition receipt are not printed on Visa page.

It will be a problem at POE?.

Anyone got H1B Visa with annotation field blank and have any issue at POE?.



As far as i know (i checked my visa too), Annotation is for dependants.
only the PA, principal applicant name
H4 Visa should have the H1’s name under Annotation.

But still, your H1 visa should have info like,
PN (Petitioner) : Company Name
PN# : EAC or WAC (receipt number)
PED: Petition Expiration Date

You must send an email to the consular post where you applied asking this concern with the Visa number (the one in red to the right side bottom of visa). Its better to scan a copy of the visa and send it in the email, I believe it might cause issues in PoE, so why to take a risk


Thank you Marvin. I had visted the New Delhi Embassy office and they made the correction.
