My H1B petition was approved by USCIS on September 1, 2022, with consular processing.
I am currently living in India (since 2018), but have worked on H1B in the past. Before returning to India, I was Out of Status for around 8 months. I had an H1B petition filed on my behalf by a consultant, but he withdrew it before it was processed, which left me in out of Status from the time it was submitted.
Now I am in the process of scheduling my visa interview. I understand it will be an uphill task to get my visa stamped at the US consulate. I have not come across any case where someone got H1B re-stamped after falling out of status. Do you have any statistics on that?
No I did not work after the H1B petition was withdrawn.
Actually, I wasn’t working while the petition was with USCIS, but I was attending college. I had graduated by the time the petition was withdrawn. I know I was out-of-status, but I am not sure how severe the consequences would be of attending college.
