Did I need to get an H1B visa stamping if I’m in the US? I was on OPT and got my H1B while on it so ive been in the US since 2014, never left. It’s time to renew my H1B and the questionnaire is asking for my current visa info such as the visa number. I don’t have a visa stamp for my H1B because I was in the US. I do have one for my F1 that is obviously expired. I only have the I-747A for my H1B. Did I not get an H1B stamping when I needed to for 2+ years…?

My H1B extension was denied in November 2019, following which I returned to India while my company prepared another application for me. In late February, my H1B application for the same job and position was approved and I was due to get my passport stamped but obv the consulates closed. My questions are: 1. Is anybody else in this exact same position? Can I get in touch with you? 2. Would this qualify as the continuing job exception for the visa suspension proclamation?

We started state testing today with my kiddos taking their FSA Writing. It is the first time I have seen them in school as they are a digital class, and such an amazing experience to see them together as they talked amongst themselves before we went to the classroom to test. You can see how much they miss being together. ❤
