    My new company lawyer applied for H1B application with the USCIS on 11th December 2009 as premium processing, do you think still the 2010 cap is available and how many days it takes to get the receipt number?

    Could you please answer above question please? I am curious to know whether I can make it in this year?

    mys sis in law applied for an h1b visa for me, according to her my papers was denied. she also told us that they appealed it, but we do not know until now whether the same has already a result. May i know until when the USCIS will process for an h1b visa. anyone knows?

  7. Kavita on October 5, 2009 at 10:23 PM

    Hi All,

    I was interviewd on 24th Sept for H1b. VO asked me very basic questions like my salary, about my interview etc. Finally she gave me yellow lettter with this bullet point marked :-

    "When Admininstrative Processing is complete u will be contacted and requested to submit ur passport, this letter to the nearest VFS office" . She said they will contact me after the administrative processing. She returned my I797 original copy also.

    Can any one guide me about the time line and what should i do next.

      Hi Kavita,

      What industry are you in and what kind of job profile do you have? To my understanding few specialty jobs undergo ‘administrative process’. My husband went through that when he got his H1 stamped. There is a group in facebook which includes all candidate like yourself and they give updates there, you can check that.

      • Kavita on October 7, 2009 at 11:29 PM

        Thanks for the reply Sara. I am into IT Industry, I am a consultant.

        MAy i know how much time it took in ur husband case ie from yellow letter to visa stamped?

  8. diganta on October 5, 2009 at 10:07 PM
