    I'm in the US on a H1B visa since Oct, 2003. My current approval notice
    (I 797) has an expiry date of April, 2008. However I do not have a stamp on my passport reflecting the expiry on April, 2008. The only H1B stamp on my passport was that obtained just before my first entry to the U.S on a H1B and the expiry date shows June,2005. I didn't have to leave the country since my entry date and hence didn't find the need to get the visa (current approval) stamped on my passport.

    Since one can apply for a H1B extension 6 months before the actual expiry date which will be November 2007 in my case and if I do so and obtain a new approval notice (with an extension of upto 3 years as I have a I 140 approved with my current employer) and if that notice has an expiry of April 2011, then if I go to the Canadian US embassy in Jan, 2008 to get my H1B stamping done in the month of January, 2008, will the new stamp have an expiry date of April, 2008 (current approval notice) or can I get a stamp valid until April, 2011 (based on latest approval notice)?

    Your help is highly appreciated.
    Hey sumanvenkatappa...

    You seem to be a Junior member so I would like to tell you that if you have query that is not relevant to the one already open , you start a new Thread. You do not post your query to an existing thread and piggyback on it.

    You can go to FORUM and click on NEW THREAD and enter an appropriate title and then enter your query.

    hope this helps you to come to speed with the IV query posting convention...

    To put it in other words...lets say u r very hungry and go in a restaurant....Just bcoz you r very hungry you don't start to eat from somebody else's would take ur own seat SEPARATELY and order your own food.....Think of posting query's in the forumn similar to that....And that goes for everyone else hijacking somebody else's threads..

    Don't mean to be RUDE ..but I am getting sick of people hijacking threads and deviating from the original query...

    Don't bet on this too much. Not being pessimistic, but in a democracy it is not just what is done but who does it and how it is done. Why should Republicans in the outgoing Congress vote again on a bill when their majority status is obsolete now? Do you think democrats will allow this outgoing congress to take the credit? they are politicians too, anything crappy in that bill is going to be the new Congress's (read Democrat's) burden. Already, a bombshell is waiting in the form of a hastily passed by the house_hastily signed by teh President bill: there is a fine print that removes oversight of how money is spent in Iraq (at least some of it). So, there may even be review of hastily passed, pre-election bills. anything more like this is going to give this congress very very bad name and the next congress a really bad headache.

    CIR is a heavyweight bill. Heavyweight bills passed hastily leads to heavy indigestion. Look at the parliamentary history in US and India. We need lite weight riders and hitchhikers. Pushing on CIR is betting on a horse that is soon to be retired, with masked broken limbs..

    Next move for EB should be THE decisive, concise, striking at the heart and quick. CIR is not the best bet for that.
    Somthing early spring would be the ideal thing to expect before the political capital is lost by the new congress.

    Was just watching Late Edition on CNN..with Arlen Specter and Chuck Schumer.. Specter did mention that he expects the CIR to be passed in the next few weeks in the lame duck session by the house.. infact he mentioned that the conservative outgoing speaker Hastert in favour of this at this house might pass this now..with the senate already passed this..

    Lets see who this goes ..

    This data is ambiguous from the USCIS. It very well could represent pending 140 petitions, in which case all the euphoria would turn to shock. We must try to get clarification about this before anything else.
    One of the tables there mentions the NIW, that is determined at the 140 level, after that a 485 is a 485 and it goes into the EB2 queue. So when they list that in the breakdown, I suspect if they may be referring to 140s here. Additionally they list either no NIW140 or NIW-based 485s from the NSC. If they are referring to NIW based 485s, this is incorrect, since I am one of those with an approved NIW and pending 485 at the NSC. There are others like me on IV physician forum.
    So lets try to get more information about this response. This data does not give the whole story. In a worst case scenario it is indeed pending 140s they have given.

    what if Obama does not win :) ..if something has to pass it will pass during this term. things and priorities change after a person gets elected. this is politics 101. I appreciate your optimism and if there is no spill over then EB3-I faces the worst case scenario. as usual the truth is somewhere in between. i.e. be ready for a long road ..if you get before that ..then good.
    as others mentioned ..the only other thing you can do is support IV.
    I follow politics too and politics is very complex for mortals like us. there are many obstacles for Obama ..his tax policies, some of the controversies and mr Rezko ..why do you think Clinton only suspended her campaign but did not close it completely ?


    It doesn't matter what the president wants to do as far as CIR is concerned. As far as CIR is concerned, George W begged it to be passed in both houses well before he became a lame duck. I don't see how the lawmakers on far right can come and align with the far left or even the lawmakers who are in the center. For the CIR to pass through without issues, Dems should control both houses with a big majority. Also, if you are thinking that Obama is going to win this, you are very well underestimating Mac. watch out for the GOP machine in the last 2 months and it will be a different ball game. Clinton lost because her campaign was over confident and by the time they realized they had a string of 10 bad states whose background does not suit her. Mac's campaign can't be over confident after they saw what happened. GOP is going to do its best to further divide the badly bruised Democratic party. Its few states that will decide this election and its difficult to carry states winning only the metropolitan areas. Obama won 5 counties of 90 some counties in OH. If his performance in general election is going to be the same, forget OH. Same situation in WV.

    For now, I feel Obama is a great visionary and ideologue. No one knows whether he will achieve most of the things he is promising to do if he becomes the president. But he has been very logical and rational esp with the gas tax holiday. All said, he looks like a destiny's child. Imagine where he would have been if the Rev wright wreck came before the Iowa caucuses.

    There are so many ifs and buts. our interests are best served with out the big vehicle CIR. If thats the only vehicle, we possibly are going to be held hostage.

    The conventional wisdom, overall, in DC is that when it comes to Legal EB immigration, Republicans are our friends.

    If you are an illegal Democrats are your friends.

    These days, the dems and republicans have joined hands against illegal variety. There hasnt been a litmus test of legal immigration on Dems or Republicans. I dont think S 1932 was any indication on where congress stands on our issue. S 1932 was a budget reconcilation bill and they had bigger fish to fry: Budget reconcilation. In order to garner support from their own party, republican leadership had to drop immigration and other non budget related things from 1932. Tancredo and Smith can only have fun as long as there is tough opposition to any bill. On bills of like PACE having 60 senators and hopefully majority on board, Tancredo, Byrd, Smith and cheerleaders like him may not have bargaining power they had during 1932

    This is a developing story. I am sure there are lots of IV members in H1 and getting/going to be affected. one of the option I am trying to explore is to take the USCIS and CBP to the court. They do not have the authority to decide the employer-employee relationship.

    First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out�because I was not a communist;
    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out�because I was not a trade unionist;
    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out�because I was not a Jew;
    Then they came for me�and there was no one left to speak out."

    The Insightful Immigration Blog � Commentaries on Immigration Policy, Cases and Trends: NEW USCIS MEMO ON EMPLOYER-EMPLOYEE RELATIONSHIP FOR H-1B PETITIONS: IS IT A WAY TO KEEP CERTAIN WORKERS OUT? (

    Here I want to know how many IV members are in H1B and going to suck into this and how many are ready for the fight. In terms of money and time. Remember, you may not be travelling out of the country anytime soon. But when you are filing for I-485, USCIS can deny because you are not in status at the time of filing. Because throughout the H1B period you need to maintain the employee-employer relationship as per this memo. So no one is safe.

    So its time to decide our future and life. If you are complacent and soon you will pay the price. Act before its too late.

    Lets take the bull by its horn. If you vote, post your details in this thread. otherwise there no use of voting.

    I know it hurts , but this was necessary to stop the misuse of H1B program.
    The H1B was never meant to be used by Body shoppers.

    Dont even think about it unless you are a quant and have resources that can compete with the Hedge funds. Commodities do not behave like stocks, you need to be able to model prices using multi variate models. Then there is jumps. You should be familiar with jump diffusion/step functions etc. To be able to model these you will need to use a factor model like the Pilipovic model. Even then it will only be an approximation.

    Commodities are purchased as futures. Futures are derivatives and you will need to hedge them. A perfect hedge for a future is 1:1 in the spot. Since there is no arb here you will have to use options. To model the price of an option you will have to be a master of Black-Scholes option pricing model or a similar method like monte carlo simulation. Even if you figure all this out you will have to delta hedge. Delta hedging commodity options is very expensive, you will bleed money. Look up Hodges-Nuberger model for delta hedging options on derivatives.

    I suggest a book by Daragana Pilipovic called "Energy Risk", buy it and read it. After that if you still feel you can take on hundreds of computers running parallel with teams of quants modelling prices and programs trading algarithimic models; then Good luck!!

    Trade stocks as modelling stocks is comparitively easy. Stocks have drift (mu). If you are saturated with stocks look into options and Fixed income. Leave all these complicated stuff to the pros. You have better chance of hitting a jackpot in a casino than making money in trading commodities.

    Hello IVians,
    As we all await our GCs, I thot we can explore some investment vehicles.

    Does anyone here have experience with commodity trading?
    Can we trade in commodities on H1 or L1 status?
    Is it too risky like forex trading?
    Who are the online brokers offer commodity trading?
    Is there a minimum account balance / trade required every month or so?

    Pls share your experience. Thanks!

    You can't do anything to ICICI - they are private banks and the way they have agreements when you send money - they can tweak dates when to actually dump the cash , change exchange rates anytime ( within a reasonable range) to increase their Profit margins. Its just a smart way of doing business and making - i wont call that 'stealing money'

    If you want to be smarter than them jump to online SBI boat , they have the best Online rate and let ICICI know next time that you switched loyalty because they were getting smarted beyond range.

    I used to transfer money earlier by Remit2India (R2i) and sometimes C2i but since then they started making ( or your stealing) more brokerage money out of my hard earned dollars - i switched :cool:

    Let me know how you feel the online SBI - they are always 15-10 p more than ICICI or CITI so at the end of year if you save average $25k you are anyway saving Rs 2.5-3k. Not a big thing but they maintain some ethics about tweaking rates and the exact day they dump the cash to your account - i got about 43.25 when market rate was 43.57 and those smart banks ( or thieves) were doing around 43.07..43.12

    Hope this helps.

    I have sent money using icicibank's M2I service . Usually they take 5 working days to remit the money(atleast 8 days to transfer). I made four transactions last week(mon, tue, wed, thu) and they already remitted the money using low conversion rate.

    It just took less than three days to remit the money this time. Bank deliberately did this just to steal money from me. I have lost more than 35 paise per dollar and it comes close to Rs 10,000. This is ridiculous and its a big robbery.

    How do i get my money back? How do i make a compliant about this bank? They have no one to assist me over the phone.

    What to do now?. Rs 10,000 may look too small for us. But how can we let banks to act like a criminals.

    Any help/suggestion/comment?

    ICICI Bank has started a 'Express Pay' service in which your monety gets transferred in 1-2 day but they charge 5 $ for that.
    I think you might have selected that option while transferring. Thats the first option ...

    Point is all want GC fast. That will not come by fighting between EB2/EB3.
    It takes realization of how important skilled immigrants are to US economy.
    So Lets not fight within us, lets do what it takes to get what we want.

    I come from india, and abt 300 years back fighting between the indian kings led to india being ruled by a foreign nation for 100 years!. Grow up folks , realise what you want!

    jsb - I received an email today from CRIS that they have issued an RFE on my I-485. I am EB-3 India September 7, 2007 I-485 filer with a PD of June-2005. Like you said, they do not consider country of chargeability until the case is all set to approve.
    Otherwise, why would they touch a EB3-I case with PD of 2005.

    I am not sure what are they looking for in FRE. I want to get out of this game way or the other!

    Your situation confirms what I believe. They touched your file, because in the sequence of paper file receiving, your file is next. While issuing RFE, adjudicator did not even look at your PD or chargeability. When it is all clear, then perhaps they will open the page where PD and birth country are written. If at that moment in time your PD is current you will be cleared, else back to same (or some other) pending stack of files.

    RFE could be for so many things, birth/medical certificates not acceptable, something is not properly signed, photos missing, passport photos not clear, etc.

    I have taken my Ex - employer to DOL and USCIS and I was successful getting my money back.

    If you go with lawsuit then it becomes partially a Civil case rather than criminal offense.

    If any one needs info how to proceed send me a PM

    Good job buddy.

    This is a good option-to sue your employer but if you want a free attorney then let DOL W&H division do that job for you. Their officers will audit the employer and will check their records for the last 5 years and will also fine them.

    From what I understand, once the law comes in to affect, labor substitution will no longer be allowed so desi companies can't sell labors anymore. But the 2nd part of the puzzle was that approved labor will only be valid for X number of days (like 45 days as originally proposed) and I am not sure if this impacts the existing labors or not. 45 days expiration may only apply to new labors but no details has emerged yet so we'll have wait and see when the details come out. If it also applies to existing labors then we are home free because after the expiry date, all labors will automatically be canceled. Well, let's wait the for the fine details to come out first.

    As for you, it appears that as long as your substitution is approved before the law comes in to effect, there won't be any problem. If not approved by that date then it's kind of fuzzy as to what will happen. If you haven't filed already, just file premium and I am sure you'll have your 140 approved before the law takes effect.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I am not using substitution labor. I do not condone any one who does it for monetary reasons.

    So the rule hasn't taken affect yet huh! I will definitely send my application out in premium processing this week. Just worried that I have passed the 45-day time period :( . Does my I-140 have to be approved before this rule is implemented, or just that my application needs to be filed ?

    Every one keeps talking of "H1 Transfer" there is no such thing... every time someone files a H1 Petition on your behalf it is a new H1 Petition the only thing that changes is the length of the approval period. The period already used in previous H1b employments is deducted.
    Now as far as the I94 and AP, as someone said earlier, when you use AP, you are parolled into the US. Similarly when you apply for H1 you get a new I94 along with the approval notice. This resets your status to H1b with I94 validity set to the length of approval period

    In that case would it not be better to come in on AP and save some of the 6 years of H1 validity?
