    Hi,

    My employer is filing my I-140 and I-485/131/765 concurrently. My lawyer/representative send a list which says G-28 signed by lawyer and my employer. I understand for I-140, G-28 is signed by lawyer and employer(petitioner). When filed concurrently is one G-28 is enough for whole forms?
    I read we need to have G-28 form for each form and for 485/131/765 forms G-28 should be signed by the actual applicant and the lawyer instead of the petitioner(my employer). Right now in my case there is only G-28 form they were sending that was signed by my employer(petitioner) and the lawyer...is one G-28 is fine for whole application packet when filed concurrently...

    USCIS website clearly says without G-28 form they will reject the application right away...but it didn't mentioned for each form though...but all my colleagues says they signed three G-28 forms one each 485/765/131...i am little confused and concerend..please suggest..

    thanks in advance..

    I was in same boat. And apparently there is nothing like I-94 extension according to my lawyer. So after your passport comes.. You go out of the country and come back for a new I-94. Or you apply for visa renewal. I had to apply for h1 extension anyway within 5 mos. So I applied for renewal. Hope this helps.

    I have my visa valid till Dec 2008. But PP Expires on July 1st 2007. when I was entering US on Dec 30th 2007, They gave me I94 valid till july 1st 2007. So I have to extend my I94 once I will get my new passport for which i have already applied in Chicago. Does any one know, how many days it takes for passport renewal? I had sent my passport to chicago Indian consulate on jan 10th and still waiting.

    Hi All,

    We are planning to goto canada for our H1 visa extension (actually i changed my job to new employer also). My H1 visa expires on Sept 31st 2007.
    We are planning to go in August 2007 itself.

    Lets say if our h1 extension is rejected or some issue what will be our status?
    Can we come back to US and plan for our india travel or we have to leave to india from there itself?

    I heard that mexico has different rules?

    Thanks for your help.

    I think I ran across this problem myself earlier.

    You are using firefox, aren't you? VFS site does not work with firefox. It works well only with IE. So use IE. Simple.



    Hi all,

    I have been trying to get an appointment from Hyderabad consulate, AP, India for the past two days on 27th or 28th of May 2009.

    When I check the availability, the website shows that 27 thru 29th of May are available for appointments. But after I create and save the application it doesn't take me to the page where I can select the appointment dates. We sent an email to VFS customer support but till now we did not receive any reply.We are two H1bs(myself and my husband) and two H4s(kids).

    Did anyone get an appointment successfully ?

    The entire process of H1b revalidation itself is a tormenting procedure. On the top of it VFS website is really annoying.Sorry for venting my frustration.

    Can anyone please help me out and guide me through the process.

    Thanks in advance

    Amul

    Thanks for the link. That clarifies that the new package fee of $1010 encompasses the EAD/AP renewal for the life of 485. If one had used the old fee structure then the new fee for I 765 (EAD) - $ 340 and I 131 Advance Parole - $ 305.

    I would think that if you pay $645 (EAD and AP) for the renewal that would also be good for the life of the 485, though the link doesn't explicitly state that. Does anyone have any more info on that?

    Thanks.
    Can someone confirm that if you file I-485 with old fee system and pay for the new fee when you renew EAD and AP, do you still need to pay again on your 2nd time renewal ?

    My attorney told me that EAD to H1 will not counted against the cap if the person was on H1 before going on EAD. Is it true.

    couple of attorneys with whom I enquired also told me that if you still have time on h1 then you are not counted under the cap and do not need to file afresh which goes through the process of lottery etc. I think at the most you need to go to the consulate to get the visa stamping. Can some one experience corroborate this.

    Has anyone in the forum did EAD to H1?

    I insist that the name of the person who used profane language on IV website be revealed. It is a serious and urgent issue. Such people must be exposed for the public good.

    I fully think that if IV is serious for the dignity of its members and wants this not to happen again, then the person should be revealed and banned. I know this has happened in the past also but not taking this kind of action has given courage to such kind of people to attempt it again.

    Cuban Family Reunification Parole Program

    AGENCY: U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, DHS.

    ACTION: Notice.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    SUMMARY: This Notice announces U.S. Citizenship and Immigration
    Services' Cuban Family Reunification Parole Program. Under this
    program, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is offering
    beneficiaries of approved family-based immigrant visa petitions an
    opportunity to receive a discretionary grant of parole to come to the
    United States rather than remain in Cuba to apply for lawful permanent
    resident status. The purpose of the program is to expedite family
    reunification through safe, legal, and orderly channels of migration to
    the United States and to discourage irregular and inherently dangerous
    maritime migration.

    DATES: This Notice is effective November 21, 2007.

    FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Manpreet S. Dhanjal, Refugee Officer,
    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Department of Homeland
    Security, 111 Massachusetts Avenue, NW., 8th Floor, Washington, DC
    20529, Telephone (202) 272-1613.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    I. Background

    In furtherance of the U.S.-Cuba Migration Accords, the United
    States endeavors to provide a minimum of 20,000 travel documents
    annually to aspiring Cuban emigrants. See Joint Communiqu[eacute] on
    Migration, U.S.-Cuba (Sept. 9, 1994) (known together with the May 2,
    1995 Joint Statement as the U.S.-Cuba Migration Accords (hereinafter
    ``Migration Accords'')). In so doing, the United States offers a safe,
    legal, and orderly means of coming to the United States. To date, the
    majority of travel documents issued under the Migration Accords fall
    into one of three programs: family-based immigrant visas; refugee
    resettlement; and parole under the Special Cuban Migration Program,
    also referred to as the Cuban Lottery. For information on the Cuban
    Lottery, see http://havana.usinterestsection.gov/diversity_program.html
    .

    Two aspects of the existing array of migration programs limit the
    ability of the United States to effectively promote safe, legal, and
    orderly migration as an alternative to maritime crossings. First, with
    the exception of ``immediate relatives'' (e.g., spouse, unmarried
    child) of U.S. citizens (USCs), the number of family-based immigrant
    visas that are available in any given year is limited by statute. See
    Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) sections 201(c), 202(a) & 203, 8
    U.S.C. 1151(c), 1152(a) & 1153. The statutory caps have resulted in
    long waiting periods before family members remaining in Cuba may rejoin
    the USCs and lawful permanent residents (LPRs) residing in the United
    States who petitioned for them. Second, the United States has not been
    permitted to hold a new registration period since 1998 due to
    constraints placed on the Cuban Lottery program by the Cuban
    Government. This greatly reduces the pool of individuals to whom the
    United States may issue travel documents.
    For these reasons, this Notice adds the Cuban Family Reunification
    Parole (CFRP) Program to the list of migrant programs based on which
    the United States issues travel documents under the Migration Accords.

    II. The CFRP Program

    Under the CFRP Program, USCIS may exercise its discretionary parole
    authority to permit eligible Cuban nationals to come to the United
    States to rejoin their family members. See INA section 212(d)(5)(A), 8
    U.S.C. 1182(d)(5)(A) (permits parole of an alien into the United States
    for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit); see
    also 8 CFR 212.5(c) & (d) (discretionary authority for granting
    parole). Granting parole to eligible aliens under the CFRP Program
    serves the significant public benefit of enabling the United States to
    meet its commitments under the Migration Accords as well as reducing
    the perceived need for family members left behind in Cuba to make
    irregular and inherently dangerous attempts to arrive in the United
    States through unsafe maritime crossings, thereby discouraging alien
    smuggling as a means to enter the United States. Whether to parole a
    particular alien remains, however, a case-by-case, discretionary
    determination.

    III. Participation in the CFRP Program

    USCIS will offer participation in the CFRP Program to Cuban
    nationals who reside in Cuba and who are the beneficiaries (including
    any accompanying or following to join spouse and children (see INA
    section 203(d), 8 U.S.C. 1153(d)) of a properly filed Form I-130,
    ``Petition for Alien Relative,'' that has been approved, but for which
    an immigrant visa is not yet immediately available.
    Under the CFRP Program, USCIS or the Department of State's National
    Visa Center (NVC) will mail written notice to U.S.-based USC and LPR
    petitioners whose Forms I-130 have been approved regarding their
    beneficiary's eligibility to participate in the CFRP Program and the
    procedures for requesting parole. However, participation in the CFRP is
    voluntary. If USCIS exercises its discretion to grant parole, it will
    issue the necessary U.S. travel documents to the beneficiary in Cuba.
    These travel documents will enable the beneficiary to travel safely to
    the United States to rejoin his or her family members.
    Participation in the CFRP Program is not available to aliens who
    qualify as ``immediate relatives'' under section 201(b)(2)(A)(i) of the
    INA, 8 U.S.C. 1151(b)(2)(A)(i). The extraordinary benefit of parole is
    not needed for these aliens, since they may seek visas for travel to
    the United States immediately upon the approval of Form I-130.
    Additional information about the CFRP Program will be posted at
    http://www.uscis.gov.

    Guys,
    You might be a little frustrated with whats going on in your lives, hence the FOs and F****. You have the right to be pissed at this guy and what you have said is correct. But if you ever want anyone to take "Immigration Voice" seriously.............STOP cursing in these forums. IV is paying thousands of dollars for lobbying and trying to bring change. We have helped thousands of people with answers (and that includes me) but using such language in the forums undermines everything we stand for.

    If you can help..go ahead...If you cant.........LOG OFF.

    My state in four lines

    1) Came to US on F-1 Visa, never completed my masters

    2) Shifted to H-1B and i have been with the same client and havent been to India for four years.

    3) Now i am doing part time MBA from a top Ivy league school and i have $40,000 in loans from my MBA. i have not finished it as yet.

    4) Applied for labor and priority date is Jan 2007 and i wanted to apply for 1-485 and AP and Skip H-1B stamping

    But because of the july 2nd i cant do that anymore and i will have to go to H-1B stamping. I wonder what will happen if my stamping gets rejected. If dont attend classes for 4 months. My student loan will start asking for monthly payments. I am in a quagmire.

    But still i have decided that i will go to India in any case and if payments become overdue for more months. I dont know what to do.

    I had so many hoped on the current numbers . Any idea guys what can i do?

    there are 20,000 here
    and more of us around on blogs like immigration portal and siskind-ilw
    IF: everyone would sign a petition to TOYOTA- the Lou Dobbs sponsor (copy to CNN) stating in no uncertain terms our displeasure with their relationship to a hate monger, and threatening a boycott- believe me it would make waves.

    BUT: How many will sign with their real names? How many will sign at all?

    we have been traditionally fearful and resistant to stepping out of the shadows. the question is - after a successful campaign that helped bring USCIS to it's knees, has something fundamental changed in enough of us?

    IF so, then there is hope for an idea like this.

    Hi!

    Much like many in this forum, my husband and I are stuck in this retrogression mess. I have spent 3 years on H4 and 3 more in H1. I am told now that I will not be able to work until my husband's greencard process has moved beyond the 485 stage. Our lawyer is suggesting that I can extend my H1 by 3 years by making a good faith argument to the USCIS that I have not utilized the full 6 years in H1 time and a secondary arguement that my husband has an approved 140 petition that can allow extension of H time. I will really appreciate any opinions from the forum members and from people who may tried this before. Please respond!
