    I called the department of state, visa's section to enquire about this PIMS verification. They said that KCC handles it. When I called KCC they said they cannot check ahead of time :mad:


    Folks who had delays in getting H1b stamped due to the PIMS system:

    Can you look at your I-797 and see if there was an A number (something like A123 456 789) mentioned under the "Beneficiary" box?

    I have A number ...I think that signifies AOS number or something...

    What is your point?

    My intentions was not to offend anyone...all I am trying to say is blaming the H4 visa is unfair...H4's intention is to have the dependents be able to join the H1 visa holder....just that, nothing more....it is another story that most people want to do more than just that while on a H4. And for that several other visa options are all open..

    Yes, my spouse too was here on a H4 and we had faced some problems...but to be honest, I had educated myself very well on what problems we will face before getting onto a H4..we thus never cribbed about her being on a H4....and I had always insisted to my spouse that if she wanted to do more..she would have to fight for her own F1/H1 visa..

    Dude, its very very unfair on H4 people. You got to be in H4 visa to understand their problems. I could apply this logic to anything. So does anyone land here expecting to becoming a GC holder or citizen right away? So if someone says you will not be given GC just because while coming you were not guaranteed a permanent status, will you agree to it?

    Everyone tried to convert to H1 and look what happened. Stupid lottery kicked this year on first day. And F1, its not that everyone is wanting to become a student. What if they had enough degree already in foreign country? Besides you can't study here for free...

    I know nothing can be done by us and the only way out for them is EAD. At least lets not go overboard and tell H4 people that you don't deserve to crib about it.

    Anil,

    I got an email from TSC mentioning that my file had been requested for review and to allow 60 days.

    Also, I got a letter from USCIS (TSC) in response to the SR that my file was being actively worked on.

    Is that the same as an officer reviewing the case? or that comes next after file has been requested.

    Did you receive any email response from the Service center processing your case, after you raised an SR ?

    If in that response..they mentioned that an officer is reviewing your case..then you should be safe..

    Alterego,

    You are absolutely right in your thinking. It is a pity. I know people who get approved forget everything thinking that "All is well that ends well" but the fact remains that USCIS was is and will remain the most incompetent and irrational organization on the face of earth....

    You are right congressional inquiries are being treated as normal inquiries and they are given standard responses and I have bought this to the notice of my congresssman's office....

    I too have the same feeling of Govt's healthcare plan....it'd fail just like SS and Medicare.....

    SoP

    There is no logic to randomness....I guess the 2nd law of thermodynamics is most appropriate for USCIS...which is to say "Entropy always rises in the universe"

    For transiting through US airports, you need to prove you do not have immigration intent or commitment to another country like home ownership, (and the whole nine yards that go with it). That is far more difficult to establish. Many businesses in developing countries that used to route travels to South America via Atlanta now route them via Europe which is easier compared to US since 2003.
    Actually US travel industries are fighting hard to get Transit Without Visa (TWOV) and International-to-International (ITI) passenger programs in US airports re-introduced.

    It is not true. The orignal text in IMMIGRATION AND NATIONALITY ACT says "Visas shall be made available, in a number not to exceed 28.6 percent of such worldwide level, plus any visas not required for the classes specified in paragraph (1), to qualified immigrants who are members of the professions holding advanced degrees or their equivalent or who because of their exceptional ability in the sciences, arts, or business, will substantially benefit prospectively the national economy, cultural or educational interests, or welfare of the United States, an d whose services in the sciences, arts, professions, or business are sought by an employer in the United States.

    Beyond 28.6 percent, there is no words/requirements from the law that EB1 should spillover to EB2 first, then EB2 can spillover to EB3. It is just saying that EB1 can spillover to EB2, EB1&EB2 can spillover to EB3.




    "

    That is true. USCIS behaviour no longer (or never has) assumes the meaning of EB1&EB2 wording in the law text.

    Previously a lot of visas flowed into EB3 because USCIS misinterpreted ( rather did not take into account) the AC21 change, which suggests that the per-category spill over numbers must be used within the category before flowing out of the category.

    Unfortunately, when they realized it, they seem to now ignore (or have always ignored) the wording of EB1&EB2 numbers flowing in EB3. A lot of people here don't agree with this interpretation, but I am very sure that USCIS is misreading the law and is shafting EB3 big time.

    I dont know how to word a letter to USCIS that shows them their oversight, and yet word it in a positive (or a non-confrontational) manner. If you have any idea's, lets work on a letter campaign to make USCIS aware of this. However, let us do this through personal PMs while we work out the details, as this is a very contentious issue and you will spend a lot of time responding to distracting arguments.

    Are you suggesting the fraud should not be reported?

    Its like saying that do not report burglary in your home, as thief may do something bad to the family. Typical scare the victim approach.

    No - I am not suggesting that!!

    What I am suggesting is that the right time to take this up is when a recession is not in full swing. Between 2004 (when this law was enacted) and 2007 was a great time to pick this battle. Maybe another year down the line would also be a great time to pick it. Picking up this particular battle right now would probably make YOUR and MY lives much more difficult in the medium term.

    Like you and the OP - I am a selfish individual. I will pick up only those fights which are in my interest. I believe that this particular fight is a lose-lose proposition in the current climate. I am disputing your (and OPs) belief that this will be beneficial for you/me/rest of us.

    Lets take the example of the same Goldman Sachs manager. Tomorrow ICE comes to him and says you need to get rid of these 50 guys under you. What will he do? He cant increase the budget in the current environment. So he probably will hire a couple of GC holders/Citizens and replaces the whole division (with 50 GC/Citizens besides the 50 'violators') with an offshore team.

    Think about it!!

    Now is the time when everybody is thinking in terms of cost cutting. If you create costly disruptions now - then either the company becomes GM and lose out to overseas competitors or migrates the eitire division out.

    I talked to my immigration about this today. My wife is on h4 and her h1-b is not selected in this year lottery process. I wanted her to go a school which issues CPT in less than one year so that she can start work. But my lawyer strongly recommended not to change her status from H4 to F1. My PD is 24 March 2005 EB2. Lawyer told me that it might cause a problem for my wife to get the GC on her I-485 application. Lawyer said some of her clients got through without a problem and some of her clients have problem regarding status change from h4 to f1. Fianlly i decided not to take that risk. I'm still waiting to file I-485.

    My lawyer also strongly advised me against converting her H4 to F1. However since there was no visibility so I asked him what to do to get my wife working status. It was then he advised me that if she wants to start working badly then go ahead and apply for F1 but don't travel out of country while on F1.

    FBI NAME CHECK banners (see below) should be displayed during the september rally to illustrate the painful delay in the NAME CHECK process.

    DELAY IN SECURITY CHECK UNDERMINES THE GOAL OF NATION'S SECURITY!!

    PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE!!!

    LONGER THE DELAY GREATER THE RISK!!

    Media and Congress WILL PAY to this issue!

    Why don't you use direct flights to India. There is Continental from NY & American from Chicago to Delhi everyday. If you directly book from their websites, the prices are quite reasonable. At least American I know also serves Asian Vegetarian (meant for Indian veggies) food.

    I checked with USCIS by calling them and they still have no records for me in the system. They admitted that there are many who have not been entered and issued receipts even though the dates at NSC & TSC shows otherwise.
    Adviced to be patient and call back in October 1st week. According to them its still not long enough for them to launch an inquiry to find these July 2nd applications.
    My lawyer also says she can't do anything yet unless they say that they have filed everything they have received.
    Again what a mess ...waiting for reciepts takes so long wonder when they will finally process the GC.
    I know many 2nd July filers who have even received EADs.

    I hope our patience pays off and they rewsrd it with giving the GC straightaway;).....wishful thinking.....

    pappu,

    when talking to my friends about IV I have observed the following:
    1) they prefer to "visit" the iv site to get a first hand look at what IV is about
    2) they tend to classify IV as a discussion forum rather than a movement - a couple of people have said that they did not notice any difference between IV and the other boards. they bookmark it and come back only when they have a burning question.
    3) once i tell them about IV's achievements they do seem interested but most appear to be afraid (or lazy?) in actively joining - either monetarily or otherwise.
    4) some people do not even want to post questions actively - instead ask me the question and expect me to post the question/ help them out with a response (not sure why - privacy issues?) - have others seen this also?

    I don't know how to convince the lazy ones - but for the others, would it make sense to restructure the site a little bit so that the home page is a little less noisy and has only information about the underlying movement , IV's achievements and then has a link to the the message board (as a feature of IV rather than it defining IV)?

    Good suggestions. Thanks. We do need ideas keep them coming.
    I do have a difference of opinion here. Most people come for their questions and discussions rather than advocacy everyday. Thus forums are important. We already have lot of space allocated for what IV is on the homepage.
    Pls suggest what changes you think will get us more visibility and confidence with new members.

    My case is at the local USCIS service center. I opened an SR on Aug 12 and got an email response encouraging me to apply for an Infopass appointment: "We have determined that your case would have a better result if you make an appointment to visit your local office, so you may speak with an Immigration Services Officer about your case."

    I now have an Infopass booked. Let's see what happens. My case is pre-adjudicated since we had an interview two years ago.

    Should it go any further this way, can anyone please explain the process of Ombudsman / Congressman / Senator et al?

    Thanks in advance.

    :confused:

    Yeah, am using a cordless phone. I dont remember but even with corded phone I guess I had this issue. And the cordless phone is DECT 6 phone which shouldn't interfere with the wireless connection that is at a different frequency.

    And what alternatives do you feel could solve this problem?

    If you are using a cordless phone - use 5.8 GHz. The lower frequencies interfare with other wireless devices.

    TryThis deal starting from Oct 11th (http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/hot-deals/957955), or maybe this one if you are lucky (http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/hot-deals/957963/)...

    that the change in interpretation is done intentionally. I am not sure if we can call it a mistake any more. For some agency to go all out and claim that they have "reviewed" and are therefore going to do things in a new way is kind of casting things in stone.

    Thoughts.
