Jersey City, NJ asked in Immigration Law for Kentucky

Q: So my H1 visa has been expired and we have applied for extensions after few days! N I got my receipt for new extension.

So my H1 visa has been expired and we have applied for extensions after few days! N I got my receipt for new extension. So there’s 15days gap between expiry and new receipt date. While I didn’t work in this 15days, I started working after I got my receipt. But while my h1 extension is under process, due to some reason we had to take back my application n i went back to India suddenly. Now I’m in my country and the company I’m working now wants to process B1 visa for me. And while I’m fillin the form for this. They asked me whether I have been unlawfully present, overstayed the amount of time granted by the immigration or otherwise violating the terms of a us visa? How should I answer this? YES or NO. If I answer yes I need to appear before a consular officer.

A: You must answer yes, because there is a 15-day gap between the expiration date and the extension receipt date.
