One of my friends got an offer from Tech Democracy, NJ, and would like to know if anyone had any experience with them, good or bad?
Please share your experience with Tech Democracy, NJ!!
Appreciate your response.
We sent our apps for PIO by end-September and no news from CGI Houston.
I am planning to go in person and find out whats happening with our case!
Has anyone been to Houston CGI in person to get info on their OCI/PIO app? If so, please post your details and suggest me how to go about doing...
I don't think it is necessary to mention that during her unemployment dates.
I didn't mention about two gaps in my job and the IO wasn't even worried about it.
As my lawyer would always say, do not provide informatoin to USCIS if not asked for. One is inviting trouble by doing so.
Where did you get this information? I read a posting in this forum that the PIO/OCI appilcation was sent back since the applicant sent both PIO/OCI app & SC together. He was told to get SC first and then re-apply for PIO/OCI.
Service request is a way to get an answer regarding the status of your case. INstead of an InfoPass appointment, you do this over phone.
Service Request does not delay any process. It just gives you an update of your case.
PIO is another beast. Since they have started asking for SC's, even PIO's takes months. Mine is already 6 weeks in works and no sign of movement from CGI Houston.
You are better off taking a travel visa and visit India.
//2- I read about some people when they go to have their FP taken, they call the FBI between their fingerprints and the interview, and they will be told the check was cleared the same day? (Now is this mean the FBI Name check was cleared?) or this something else? because i see some people waited...
I was also told by someone that the Indian consulates rotate employees within other consulates thereby not letting them settle in one Consulate. Plus they come on deputation and by the time they get to know the rules & regulations, they are sent back home.
This may also be the cause of delay.
CGI Houston? Good luck! Like I said in one of my posts, CGI Houston is the worst of all other Consulates. No emails, no phones and no way of contacting them.
My gut feeling is that they are overwhlemed by the applications and they have no idea how to handle all the cases.
My understanding is, once you stay out of the US for 6 months or more, you break the residency rule. So, in your case, you can apply for USC five years after you are done with your 6+ months of stay outside the US.
For eg, you will be back to US by 7/2012; add five years from this date and...
Of all the consulates, I think CGI Houston is the worst; the information provided on their site really sucks. Way deviant from other CGI's. I was told by a visa agent that the SC sent to Houston are in turn sent to DC and then sent back to Houston; this is the reason why SC's take a long time...
