Got 221g but client wants to hire full time


New Member
Hello Rajiv ji,

My H1 extension got denied in last December and I returned to India. With a new employer I filed a new petition for the same client and the same position. I continue to work remotely and support my client.

The new employers petition was approved and I attended for Visa interview. The officer declined to even take the approved petitions I-797 document but asked about employment location, client and my employers line of business etc. He also asked me about previous denial reasons and issued the 221G to mail all the documents to them.

However, given the timelines for clearing off the 221g and getting the visa, my client is willing to sponsor my visa now.
Is it ok if my client files a petition for the same position, for which another petition/visa is in admin processing?

Please help.
