I need your advice on below
1. My Petition form Company A got rejected and then the company A filed the petition as Consular processing
2. The petition got approved and i had a valid visa on my passport till Sep 2015 so i went to Mexico and came back in US without going for stamping.
3. I got issued a new i-94 which is valid till June 2016 same as the validity date of petition
Now my company is saying that i have to get visa stamped before Sep 2015 which is the current stamp on my passport since it was a consular approval.
Could you let me know if that is something a process/rule because i have been issued an i-94 till June 2016 by CBP.
You don't have to get a new visa, but it would be a good idea.
I am currently working for Company A. I am on OPT. My OPT expires on May 2016. I have applied for OPT extension. Company A will be applying for H1-B on April 2016 (Premium processing). So I would be getting the result by the end of April. In case I get picked in the lottery, can I switch to company B immediately after getting the result or do I have to wait till Oct 2016.
