View Full Version : H1 expires in November, am stuck out of US bec of 221g

08-25-2012, 09:09 PM
I stepped out of US in April and went for my visa stamping in Dubai (my in laws live there and I don't go to India often, my wife got her H4 stamped there twice without any problems!) the lady there said that they will need to send my visa for administrative processing and will get it after 2-3 weeks. It is nearly September now, haven't heard a word about it, keep checking my status and it says it is in administrative processing.
Thankfully there was a short term project that my company moved me to in India in May.
Now the thing is that the 6 yrs of my H1 get over in November.

The question I have is my company has filed for the 3yr extension but would the current "administrative processing" thing affect me getting the extension? And if it does affect it what are my options?

Any help/suggestions/answers would be greatly appreciated!
Many thanks
