FAQ

How many have been stuck at the US Embassy in India on INA 221g administrative processing? How many have been unfairly denied a visa?
I am stating my overall experience about 221(g) clause (US visa hold on or temporary state) lately this year.I filled my DS-160 application on 15 March, 2016. While scheduling my appointment through ustraveldocs, I was required to answer some questions like am I under 18 years below or 80 years above of age, did my visa expired within one year etc. Since, my visa had expired within one year, so I got drop-box appointment for my application. There was no scheduled date for the same. For that, I dropped my passport, DS-160 confirmation page, dropbox confirmation page, Visa fee receipt, 2 photos to VFS center in Delhi (US Embassy Visa Office) on 18 March, 2016. Later a day, I got a call from US embassy asking what my PhD was all about.On 25 March, I got mail from US embassy stating that my passport has been picked up and can be collected from the center. Since, Holi was on 23 March, I was on holidays and hence collected my passport on 28 March, 2016. I never thought, I would be issued a 221(g) hold on visa status stating that my visa is under administrative processing. I was required to go through the interview. I got a handwritten yellow slip stating that the applicant has done her PhD in computer applications for securing wireless sensor network through bio-inspired approaches. The paper mentioned that I do not have to schedule an appointment and can go on any business day before 10:00 AM. I learned that I come under TAL (Technology Alert List). It is a list attended for scientists and researchers whose work revolves around following domains:Conventional Munitions,Nuclear Technology, Physics, and Engineering,Rocket Systems and Unmanned Air Vehicle,Navigation, Avionics and Flight Control,Chemical, Biotechnology and Biomedical Engineering,Remote Sensing, Imaging and Reconnaissance,Advanced Computer/Microelectronic Technology,Materials Technology,Information Security,Laser and Directed Energy Systems Technology,Sensors and Sensor Technology,Marine Technology, andRobotics Urban PlanningI went to US embassy on 30 March (P.S. consular office is closed for public on last Wednesday  of every month).  Therefore, I went again to the US embassy on 31 March around 9:00 AM. It had a huge line so I got my interview around 10:30. There was a young Chinese lady who asked me a couple of questions:Q1. What is the practical application of my work?Q2. Is my work related to network security or infrastructure?I explained my work but she didn’t understand. Therefore, she took out the photograph from my passport and asked me to go to Window 6 with my passport. I went there and an Indian lady handed me a letter that my visa require some more administrative processing and I had to submit a single word file to us embassy (advanceprocessing@state.gov) including details such as letter from the work organisation, resume, research work, reason to visit USA, travel itinerary, travel companions. The letter also said I have to check the status of my visa continuously at following url:https://ceac.state.gov/CEAC/I emailed all the documents to the prescribed email id on 31 March.I checked my status continuously everyday on the above mentioned url but the message said that my visa require additional administrative processing and it can  take several weeks. Until unless on 21 April, the status changed to “Issued”. Later on 22 April, I got an email from US embassy stating that my passport has been picked up and can be collected. On 25 April I collected my passport which had a US visa stamping.Interview Held: 31 March, 2016Issued: 21 April, 2016The overall experience was gloomy since the wait period is too long and the embassy do not comment for how long the processing can take to respond back.

What does “US visa status issued” mean?
The US visa status issued means under non immigrant category means that your application for visa to USA has been approved and the visa will be issued to you. You can now go to USA and stay for the time allowed by the USA authorities.I also checked this information online and and as I had left my passport at the consulate I got mail and message to collect the visa at a predestined date. Sometimes some people request the passport to be delivered to their residence.

How do I get a European travel visa to Spain from the US if my F1 to H1B is approved, but is not yet stamped and I'm traveling after October 1st? What will my status and number in the US be to fill a visa application as my F1 (issued until 2017) is not valid now?
Hi there,I'm going to add to User-13575218621724130352's informative answer below. Since she's answered your question regarding the H-1B, I will respond to your question about your prospective visit to Spain. You will need a tourist visa. It's called a Schengen visa as Spain is a Schengen country. You will need to make an appointment with a Spanish Embassy near you. I don't know where you are located, but this is the one for those who live in California and its neighboring states: Spain Visa Information - USA - San Francisco - Home. You will submit the application there (you'll need to check their site to see what documents you will need to bring). If you can't make it to a Spanish Embassy, you can call the one that covers your jurisdiction and ask if they can make an exception and allow you to submit your application by mail.*I am not an attorney*Cheers,Jackie from bridge.us
What was your path to U.S. citizenship?
L1B visa (internal company transfer, technical) starting in 2005.Then green card on the basis of employment from late 2007. Shortly after that was issued, I got engaged to my American wife but that's not the basis for my green card or citizenshipIn November 2017 my green card expired (note the card expires but permanent resident status does not) so I finally filled out the N400 in August. There is a question that asks you to list all your trips outside the US, something USCIS surely already knows, and was the main reason I put this off, and many colleagues are still doing so.In October 2017 I gave up on naturalization happening in time and renewed my green card. Of course, the day I got my finger prints done I got my interview appointment for December.Naturalization in February. No hitches at all except a surprise handheld cellphone ticket in January that then has to be explained before the ceremony. If you've never been to a naturalization ceremony I recommend it. The combination of mass bureaucratic processing and moving rhetoric and poetry is remarkable.It surprises me slightly how easily and naturally I've started to say "we" instead of "you" when discussing US politics. Although having moved during the Iraq war and naturalizated during the Trump adminstration I apparently have remarkably poor timing.
How will the H1-B visa process change due to a Trump presidency?
There is a mass hysteria prevailing in the international students’ community in view of the recent Executive Order on Temporary Immigration Ban on seven countries and proposed changes to the H-1B bill. Let’s understand how these developments can impact Indian students aspiring for higher education in the US.Firstly, while the EO curtails immigration from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Libya, and Yemen, the courts have overruled this EO order recently. Similarly, the refugee clause will not apply to Indians as well. Indian students going on F1 Visas, therefore, need not worry.Moving onto the topic that has everyone on the edge of their seats (more so, than the NaMo demonetization effect) – the legislation on H1B (employment) visas. Before we discuss the impact, let’s understand what the H1B visa does – it allows you to work “post” the OPT (Optional Practical Training) period. After the completion of the college program, a student is entitled to work on OPT for up to 12 months for non-STEM and up to 36 months for STEM courses. Thus, a STEM student can work up to THREE years (irrespective of H1B application), which usually is more than enough to not just recover the fees and the loan but also set-up a strong foundation to build upon later.Thinking from a recruiter’s point of view, if there is uncertainty in the regulations, then the company would be more keen on recruiting interns and people on OPT than on H1B. The OPT does not have a minimum salary requirement as compared to H-1Bs under the proposed regulations. This in turn will increase the opportunities for fresh graduates.Lets try to decipher a few hidden clauses of the new legislation. Now, the proposed legislation on the floor in the Congress for H1B eligibility prioritizes market-based allocation of H-1B visas for institutions willing to pay 2x of the wage calculated by a survey. Estimates are that the annual salary will amount to a minimum of approximately US$130,000 per year. While the legislation is yet to be finalized, here is why even these rules should not be a cause of grave concern for Indian students:a) Various such proposals have been floated previously unsuccessfully.b) The current visa requirements mandate Indian students to prove their indisposition towards migrating to the US permanently. However, the new H1B leaves scope for a “dual intent” which means F1 visas may not be denied on the basis of the student’s intention to migrate. The transition from F1 to H1B in that sense should be lot smoother now.c) The new H1B rules shall eliminate the ‘country based’ allocation earlier available to ‘Chile’ and ‘Singapore’ thereby creating more opportunity for Indian students.d) The salary cap of $130,000 on H1B will be applicable to only those companies who have more than 15% employees on H1B visa – this will refrain a few particular companies (read – the beneficiaries of outsourcing policies) to exhaust the quota via the H1B lottery system and open up more opportunities for other companies and startups.e) The following tweet by Trump talks of his intention to create more new businesses, which translates to more jobs. The new H1B will cut down ‘hoarding’ of talent by a few companies and help small businesses in hiring talented individuals.Donald J. Trump on TwitterDonald J. Trump✔@realDonaldTrumpThe American dream is back. We’re going to create an environment for small business like we haven’t had in many, many decades!f) The effect of the proposal will predominantly be felt by those companies who hire Indians on H1B and L1 visas for US-based projects without paying them the salaries that an American University-trained graduate (India-based or otherwise) is in a position to command. The effect thus, will be felt more on a corporate level and not at an employee level, and the Indian students aspiring for American education should not be too concerned with this move by President Trump.g) The OPT enables the student to work for a total of three years in the US after completion of their Masters. Many of the students who complete their Masters get a starting salary in the range of US$85,000 to US$95,000. Having gained three years of work experience, it is natural for these students to expect the salary in range of eligibility criteria decided for obtaining H1B visa. If the student has successfully proven his mettle to his employer, the employer will not hesitate in rewarding the employee with compensation that is above the minimum amount required to obtain the visa.g) Since the proposed H1B bill aims at leveling the playing field and curbing companies to outsource jobs, it is unlikely that these vacant positions will be filled by the existing workforce. This will create more opportunities for Indian students available under OPT option.i) If the reports are to be believed, U.S. colleges will end up losing close $700 million of their annual revenue if Indians decide to explore other avenues. This move can significantly impact US’s undisputed standing as the top study destination. University Presidents are aware of these dire implications and are trying their best to chalk out ways to attract students to the US shores, and in a bid to do so they are likely to ease out the fiercely competitive admission process. The US is known for its inclusive education system and their commitment to diversity. With the ban on seven Muslim countries, chances of Indian applicants being accepted is likely to move up a notch. In fact, we have seen better results so far this year than the previous year in terms of the admits the students have got at Collegepond.Many brilliant innovations in the US are driven by immigrants. It is a startling fact that all the six American who bagged the Nobel prize in 2016 were immigrants! A large number of international students study STEM courses and contribute significantly to research and economic growth of the nation. Statistics indicate that there is a scarcity of U.S born graduates prepared to work in STEM fields. The universities would try their best to give out admits to deserving international students to ensure their higher-education system attracts the best and brightest from across the globe.j) For the convocation ceremony at the time of graduation, more often than not, the parents end up visiting United States. The cascading impact of Indians not going to US Universities will affect the tourism industry in excess of US$ 1.0 billion as Indians are amongst the highest spenders as tourists in USA.From losing revenues in the form of visa fees, University tuition, tourism, etc – the amount will be drastic for the country to suddenly sustain. Several multinational companies have already begun lobbying against the 2x eligibility criteria of $130K, and as per Mr. Vikas Swaroop, spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India, the concerns about H1B and L1 visas have been conveyed to the US at the highest levels. With President Trump and PM Modi expected to chalk out a long-term strategy of incremental Indo-US collaboration on multiple fronts, expect the deal only to get increasingly favorable for Indians going forward. Politically and diplomatically, it makes a lot of sense for President Trump to work towards creating a foreign policy with India which is mutually beneficial for the two countries.Thus, it is important to scavenge at the opportunities during uncertain times rather than dwell too much on the negativities that have been prorogated by media without even the laws and proposals being legislated.Please note that this is an interpretation of the current proposals and may require modification with the future developments.For more information on H1B Stigma, please visitBest Career and Admission Counsellor in India | CollegepondInteract with students on our Facebook groupMS in US 2019 || Collegepond
How can I learn about my visa status, with only my passport number?
Question: How can I learn about my visa status, with only my passport number?It’s unclear what your question meant.If you meant to ask about how to find the status of a visa application given the passport number, there’s no automated system to give you that information. You’ll need to call the consulate/embassy that processed your visa applicationIf you meant to ask about the status of an already-issued visa stamp, all the information you need to know about the validity of a visa stamp for the purpose of entering the US is printed on the visa stamp itself (type, expiration date, etc) which is inside a passport. In certain cases (such as overstaying the end date on your I94), the visa automatically becomes invalid even though it has not reached the expiration date. Please note that in many cases, a visa stamp alone is not in itself enough to let you in. You’ll sometimes need to present supporting documents to the CBP agent e.g. I-20 for F visa, DS-2019 for J visa etc.
How is your life as a H1-B visa holder?
April 2013,Seattle, WA.Amazon had filed for my initial H1B as soon as I graduated and I was among the lucky folks who got approved in the very first attempt, since it is a lottery system there are never any guarantees so I was thankful to get the hassle over with. I’ve spent the last 6 years on the visa and will probably spend a fair few more before my green card processing is complete.My experience as an H1-B visa holder seems to be almost the opposite of what many answers to this question have described, that was one of the reasons I chose to write about it. I’ve worked at Amazon as an SDE and at Microsoft as a PM, at both these jobs, people have always treated me with love and respect. I have NEVER felt discriminated against even in the slightest, in fact, most people trust you more because you’ve worked harder than many to get to where you are. Even outside of work, people in Seattle have always been very friendly and welcoming, and, most people are interested in hearing your stories and journey from back home.I am able to travel abroad and fly back to India whenever I like, barring a couple of months every three years when I need to get my visa renewed, there is some paperwork involved here that the lawyers completely take care of and my only job in it all is to go get my visa stamped at the consulate. I pay the same taxes as any resident, enjoy all the same rights and privileges (except voting and jury duty) and live the same quality of life as any other regular citizen. When I purchased automobiles and property, banks never hesitated to give me a loan, on the contrary, I was always offered significantly better interest rates because I worked for a “preferred employer”. H1-B visa holders in hubs like Seattle, the Bay Area, New York, Chicago, Boston, Austin, Atlanta, etc. are very respected members of the community, they bring in jobs, they bring in money, they enrich the overall economy.Sure there is some angst in the minds of the old timer locals who were displaced, many who used to live in the quaint and quiet little town by the lake called Seattle 12 years ago despite the large corporations and the people who work there because they were the reason they got displaced from their homes. But this is a relatively small number, the huge influx of H1-B workers in the above hubs has created so many jobs in the service and property markets that most people are thrilled by your existence and value you.How is your life as an H1-B visa holder?I work a job that I absolutely love with some of the most brilliant people in the world as co-workers and mentors, the learning opportunities are beyond anything I could ever have hoped for.I earn more money than I know how to spend which gives me the opportunity to invest and save for my future and any unforeseeable circumstances that might arise.I feel extremely safe in my city, I’m treated with so much love and respect everywhere I go and I have the opportunity to interact with people from all over the world in this diverse cultural melting pot.I pay my taxes and enjoy my privileges as a resident, the infrastructure is spectacular, the local and federal governing bodies take care of everything I need and care about right from roads, water, electricity, internet, parks, hiking trails, forests and about a dozen other things.I have a circle of friends and family in my city who I share my journey with, we ride the highs and the lows together and have grown bonds that tie us together through the good times and the bad. Sure I miss my friends and family back home in India, but never once have I felt lonely or isolated, never have I felt like a stranger in a strange land.I am HAPPY. Yes there is a little element of uncertainty that comes with changing governments, yes there is some extra paperwork I need to do every three years, yes there is the possibility that I might someday be asked to pack up and leave, but those are things that are beyond my control so I see no point in complaining about them, they are the tradeoff, the tax you pay as an H1-B visa holder for all the privileges that it offers you.The climb to the summit is always one step at a time, might as well enjoy the steps.Note: I will write separate answers about the procedure to get your first H1B as well as renewals, RFEs and what they mean, the various pros and cons of being on H1B, etc. since clearly many people are interested in this information.In case we haven’t met before, I’m Rohan Kamath.Thank you for reading. I hope I could help you ponder today. :)
