When my H1B was filed..I worked for Client A. I will be at at a different client say 'B' when I go for stamping. Do I have to be careful about anything. Eg job description etc which will be different.

Get visa stamp. Apply amendment as soon possible. With receipt you can continue working. If you mention different MSA now, it’s a straight reject. Tread carefully here.

File amendment and wait for decision before going for stamping. Better be safe than sorry.

Hope it’s in the same MSA. Otherwise I would keep my mouth shut in front of the visa officer and apply for amendment after getting the visa stamp. If it’s in the same MSA, you don’t have to worry. Story should make sense from all the angles.

Different MSA..also to top it..I am moving my base locations..so h1b amendment is inevitable... will it create more issues ?

1) you can’t travel to client location without h1-b amendment in place same thing with change in office. If I were you I would start new engagement after visa stamping

I am still on opt (took consular option) my h1b doesnt kick in until I go to India for stamping in Feb. Hence I initiated the move of base location.

OP, not to scare you, but a friend of mine went through the same thing. He was on a different project when he went in for stamping, but he mentioned that he is still on the old project. He got it stamped, but when he reached US last week, he was questioned and finally they canceled his visa and sent him back. There might be other factors involved as well, but just be extra careful. There is a lot of scrutiny around the whole process as of now.

I am not planning to lie...just want to know the right path/process.

To add, he filed for an amendment for the new project and he had the receipt with him before flying.

If he had the amendment for new location...why did he lie he was on old project ...he can work in new location once the amendment is filed. Also in my case I am on consular option..so I am on opt stem until I get stamping ...so I can work anywhere in usa legally without issues before the stamping

That’s what the law firm suggested to him. They said it won’t matter, we will file an amendment after you get your stamping done. But it might be a one off case. Consult with your lawyers on this matter, they can guide you.

Hi Everyone,

Need some inputs before making an important decision.
I have offer from Cognizant and they are promising that next quarter they will initiate my Canada visa. They are giving assurance when I spoke to them over call. Also, my current employer Accenture is also saying the same to retain me. Can I believe Cognizant? Also, Canada onsite is best in which company - Accenture or Cognizant. Please suggest based on your experience.

Thanks in advance!
