Hi folks, sorry but I would like to go to the point. Are there any better ways to get a sponsor since I am living in USA as a M-2 VISA? Is it impossible or how possible is if I'm not from India? I am a 5 years Java/ Oracle professional and I didn't get a single personal interview, despite a lot of phone calls I've been received. What's wrong? Do you have any clues?

Thank you very much, Nato.

If you're already living there you're likely more expensive than some throw-away cheap labour from India who's pulled over on a 1 month contract renewable every month (while holding a paper contract with a US front to some Indian bodyshop to make it legal on paper).
Most of the H1 visas are also gobbled up by post office fronts to Indian firms, leaving few for other companies focussing on the rest of the world.

And then there's the possibility that it might be illegal to grant an H1 to someone already living in the US, you would need to check the INS (or whatever they're called these days) for that.

Jeroen,

I truly believe you need take care with your words. I am living legally in USA and I have been spent a lot of money to live here, because my wife is studying here. It's totally possible get a job and transfer the VISA, since I live the country and come back (it's also possible make that staying here, but take more time). I just would like to know where is the source for that. If you don't know what to say, simply don't say nothing. Thanks, Nato.

Nato, I'm not referring to your current status but to the possibility of granting you an H1.

I know that the Australian equivalent cannot be legally granted to someone who at the time of application (or at any period during the application process) is a resident of Australia.
The situation in the USA could well be similar, which would mean you couldn't get an H1 until your current visum expires and you leave the country (and maybe you will need to have lived outside the country for a period).

It is perfectly legal to obtain an H1B Visa in the USA while the applicant is already living there. It matters not what kind of visa the applicant had before, as long as he is in legal residence.

Jignesh I just sent an e-mail. Thank you very much for the information. Jeroen, I'm afraid that in USA is different like Ulf wrote, but I accept your apologize. If someone else may help me with that, I really appreciate.
Thanks, Nato.

Jeroen,

With the part of his posting you singled out, Jeroen simply made a good faith effort to give you information. Clearly he wasn't certain, as he said "there's the possibility" and recommended that you check with the INS.

Remember that no one is paid to come to this site. We all answer responses to the best of our ability.

Mark,

I didn't feel comfortable with the way he answered the question and the full version of his opinion is not hide, hence, anyone can see. In addition, it's already fixed and like you, I am also a professional (despite I am not a bartender yet) that is looking for new knowledges and hope help people as I can, in this site. However, I am also don't wait for payment to be here. Thanks, Nato.

I also would like to apologize with Jeroen, I didn't came here to fight with nobody. I quite understand that he did that in good faith, but I the word "illegal" for foreign is very strong nowadays. I am really sorry about this confusion. Thanks, Nato.
