221g Cover Letter Sample


I came to India in Dec 2015 for my H1 stamping. VO asked few questions n took all my documents. He handed me a white slip n said he needs to review my case. After few months when I tried enquiring about my case, I got to know, my visa has been denied n petition is sent to USCIS for review on January 4, 2016. USCIS has still not received my petition and there is no change in my status(Petition still shows as Approved). Also I never received any denial mail from Consulate.

Now I want to go back to US as my Spouse’s dependent (He is in US on a valid H1 visa)

So my question is, what are my chances of getting H4 visa as my H1 is still under review. Can I expect H4 visa denial based on my previous denial.

Please help me as its been 6 months n I am stuck in India without my family. I have below questions.

1. After reading the posts in this trail, Do I really need to resign from my current company (US based company and I am on leave right now) before going for H4 interview?

2. If my Employer is withdrawing my case or petition after I resign, will my petition still be valid/Cap exempt to reuse in future.

3. Since I have not received any letter from consulate stating about my visa denial, what should I answer in DS160 about the question of previous Visa denial?

4. What are the things I should take care while attending H4 interview.
