Hi, I am filling the form DS-160 which is used to take appointment for visa stamping in a US consulate in India. One of the questions asked in the form is: Q. Have you ever been unlawfully present, overstayed the amount of time granted by an immigration official or otherwise violated the terms of a US visa? YES/NO My H1B visa expiration date and I-94 expiration date was 18-Sep-2015. My employer applied for a visa extension on 1-Sep-2015. This extension application was approved on 13-Jan-2016. Hence, I was working on the basis of the Receipt Notice between 19-Sep-2015 to 13-Jan-2016 because my application was pending with USCIS. Does this mean that I was unlawfully present or overstayed the amount of time granted by Immigration official? Will I be considered as out-of-status for the period between 19-Sep-2015 and 13-Jan-2016? Please send me replies as soon as possible. Much appreciated.
