H1B stamping - How long can you stay in home country if Dropbox processing is delayed / there’s a request for more information?

Why would there be a limitation on how long you can stay in your home country? Are you asking from a McK policy standpoint?


Commenting to follow

Sorry, should have been clearer - how long can one work from home country while still keeping H1B active? Understand the wait times with US embassies for H1 renewal stamping are unpredictable.

Did your dropbox stamping require you to submit additional information? Asking since I’m planning to use dropbox too

In the same boat E1. Haven’t travelled yet, assessing all possible scenarios.

BIA Briefs: I’m an associate at an immigration law firm. I determined that immigration isn’t for me So I gave the managing partner my 2 weeks.

How I’m going to argue that the IC abused its discretion or misapplied the law when we made a facially insufficient argument for relief?

Good Morning. Here's my dilemma. I have an approved H1B application which got picked up in 2019-20 lot and approved in Jan 2020, before the world went into lockdown. The stamping process was initiated but it couldn't complete as the USCIS offices were shutdown die to the pandemic. I have watched patiently about all the regulations Trump Administration brought in to deny any entry to H1B applicants who weren't already working in the states or who were waiting to return.
