H1-B Visa Extension Denied

Nah not mine.. but could have been me or anybody. Please read through and recognize the flawed immigration policies of US.

SCENARIO:
  • USCIS approves your H1B visa extension
  • you visit your home country to visit family and friends
  • you go to US Consulate (in your home country) to get your "approved" visa stamped
  • the US Consulate officer denies to stamp without a reason
  • You lose your apartment, car, furniture, clothes, electronics, etc. as you can't get back into USA.

Shouldn't USCIS deny the visa extension in the first place, rather than harassing skilled workers (most of them legal) ?

Quote:
US Consulates exploiting Indian H1B candidates during Visa Interview

Hello CNN,

What will happen when the law is used legally to ruin people lives? When the law is used to do crime?
Don't you think that Consulates decision to not to issues a Visa to a person can be a crime?

Yes, its a crime and its happening. The US Consulate Visa officers abroad has no sense and shows no respect to human life. They are ruining Highly qualified Skilled workers life.

The story behind is: When a IT specialists working in USA from 4 years on H1B Visa and wants to return to home to see his family abroad, can't go back to USA as Visa officer thinks the person is staying illegally in USA and he doesn't have any job and they rejects his/her Visa or delay for more than 4 months to let him/her go back to his work.

How come the IT specialists paying 33% of his salary in taxes yearly, Almost 2000 USD per month and 24000 USD per year can be a jobless in USA? Even after submitting all kinds of documents showing proof of job or work Visa Officer feel the person is jobless or criminal and he can't go back. When a person stays in USA, he will atleast have a rented home to stay, a car to travel, insurances and other liabilities to pay. How he will pay the payments for them if he/she doesn't hold the job because of immegration delays? I have lost everything my new car, my home with rent 1500$/month, my furniture, electronics items & my cloths back in USA as I could not go back. I hate these policies. The Visa officers are similar criminals as a murderer. When USCIS approves a petition for extention why should Visa officer rejects the application without asking USCIS, or with no valid reason? Why can't they call client and check if the person is really working or not?

Please raise a voice against this legal crime and stop this act against humanity. Like me there are thousands of people here got affected because this and paid heavy price for not doing any crime or illegal work. Some people have approached Senators, some filed petition in white house but nothing is working. Consulates needs to review the application/status first before doing any rejection. My client back in US is a US govt. and they got surprised by the decision. If you are going first time its ok but if some one is staying there and has liabilities at least they should issue a temp Visa to settle it.

CNN, please make this as a News.

Thanks,

God Bless America.

from hearts of,
An Ex-American Resident.

Re: H1-B Visa Extension Denied

One of my friend also went to get his visa stamped....and got denied. When he applied again, it was denied again, when asked for reason they told him issues regarding clearance.

but you can't be going to India every time for vacation after selling off everything. The issue here is that US immigration is verrrrrry flawed.. why grant a visa in the first place.. they even deny you entry into US at port of entry in some cases and tell you that your job can be done by an American.

Arrow Re: H1-B Visa Extension Denied

It is nothing. The issue will be sorted out in no time as soon as the authorities in US are ‘apprised’ of all this. Why this charade then? They want to create an impression that Americans are good but their Indian representatives are bad.

Well dont talk about dumping furniture in a garbage dumpster ... I happen to do just that and got angry calls from my condo association board ... I had to call 1800GOTJUNK and I paid 200$ just to dispose the furniture ...

So no, in this country you cannot just use the dumpster for everything

Re: H1-B Visa Extension Denied

Due to jobless rates being very high, this is all political. People dont understand that the jobless numbers are mainly in the non tech sector.

Its the same like MNS protesting UP and Bihar residents as reason for joblessness in Maharashtra.

Re: H1-B Visa Extension Denied

one of my friend went to india and she was in between the projects and was telling everybody that mom wants to me to stay in India.she feels alone cos me being the only child. Lets see. I m on one month vacation. then she extended her return ticket too showing she wasnt sure wheather to go back or not.

The day she got her renewed visa stamped..next week ....dang in USA.

she must have heard these stories so was playing safe...if rejected call her room mate to tell her to dispose/giveaway her stuff.

Later she called me and said she was in India for 2 months vacations saying kya karna itna paisa kamaa ke ..thoda aish bhi karna chahiye

Does the person really have to return to the consulate to have his "approval" stamped? Can't he ensure that approval stamp is done in USA by USCIS before taking off?

It ain't that easy any more dhuru. I remember in earlier times, all we had to do is to send our passport alongwith the I-797 to the USCIS office (I think it was St. Louis, MO in my case) via Fedex alongwith a return envelope and get it back stamped within 10 days. I guess the rules have changed since then.

Yes.. I have done it this way.. a long time back.. also canada/mexico used to be a lovely option.. have flown into Vancouver .. vacation ka vacation stamping ka stamping.. looks like they don't do that nowadays.. Home country it is...

Heard mumbai consulate was closed for sometime for renovations and they were sending everyone to chennai/delhi .. True ??
