Here is the situation, I got admission in to a university in USA to do my masters when I was in USA on H4. I requested for i20 and they have issued it on 26th May. But unfortunately, due to emergency situation I had to go to India in the month of June and came back to USA on H4 . Now I wanted to shift my visa status to F1 . But since my i20 has been issued before me coming to India there comes the problem for me changing my visa status to F1.I t looks like I have committed a fraud. This is what my visa adviser told me Is there any solution for this??? Will they accept my visa shift at this situation???Please leave your inputs, they will help me a lot. Thanks in advance.
To Me-desi: Instead of being sarcastic, give up your crab mentality, He commited no crime,unfortunately the letter was used against him, it was indeed a mistake to mention that he was looking for a job, think of millions of illegal immigrants entering US, while hereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a man trying to carve a career for himself,why are you zealous?
to the doctor who got deported.. i think you deserved it! people like you who first lie knowingly and when you get caught try to paint the situation as a honest mistake. it is because of these kind of behavior, US immigration is deeply scrutinizing each petition for a H1B job or GC. take these IT consultants, who have totally screwed it up for India thanks for being a fellow countryman me-Desi

Please guys help me out.......as how can I get a waiver for this 5 years.. also can I apply for other categories of visa if B1/B2 is cancelled nw. Kindly help
Hi Guys I m sure the people who are talking about returning home will go back to India and work in Multinational Company to earn money and most cases it would be US based company !!! So ultimately working for US !!! People who are saying we should go back and work for the country then They should really go back and join politics, NGO or any other organisation which reach to the commom people of india. Here it is my own personal opinion that If u r really working for US based company in INdia then Better stay back here only !!! Each country has its own pros and cons and US is no exemption from it. so it depends on one's preferences what he wants.
Hi, I have been to US for 4 year and finally decided to settle down in India. I would like to know what is the best way to bring your US money to India? Do we have to pay taxes in India since we have already payed taxes while earning in US?
Hi All, I was learning driving in USA from a person who is from portugal, While talking he told me a sentence which touched me to my inner core. his words were "Go back and do something for your country" Let me clarify he did not mean just to leave now. he meant after making some good money, one should return to home country ( and specially india.) and do something good for your mother land. This is just my opinion and his words. Jai Hind.
I like the way the last 2 posts have been written.Ofcourse its absolutely a personal choice and an individual's priority to stay back in the U.S or return to India. I have been saying this time and again probably for 2 years now on this forum that if someone feels comfortable in U.S doesn't make him a 'traitor' Its all about comfort level and personal choice.We were all born Indians and even if not born Indians we still have strong Indians in us because of our heritage.We don't really have to live there to always proove that. Recently we have been offered to move to India with a great oppurtunity but we still prefer to stay back because its not always about money, career, strategic business like moves. A lot of times its just about personal choice and we may have a very strong reason for that.This doesn't mean we are crazy for turning down the offer or we are disloyal to our country its just 'our personal' preference. I guess as long as one is happy with their decision that is enough.Its all about happiness and satisfaction at the end and what gives you that is very relative.Its important to be satisfied with your decision yourself and not try to satisfy or justify it to others.
Hi all, May be 20 years ago comparative opportunities were not available and at that point of time Indians built brand "India" by staying here. In last 5-6 years people have a choice. They can be here and add shine to brand India or they can go back and add shine to India story. Now is the time to make a personal and tactical choice which varies by individual circumstances. So need is to be happy by making appropriate choice.
