I am filling up the DS156 form and are few questions which I need your help to answer.The reason is
I was in US till May'2009 on H1B. The validity of my H1B visa and I-94 was till Mar-2009. Since I had changed the employer in Feb'2009, the employer had applied for H1 tranfer and I was in US based on the tranfer application. I got H1 tranfer rejection notice in Apr 2009. After that I returned to India in May 2009, within 30 days notice give in rejection notice.
To mention here, my new employer did not process my salary from Feb-2009 to Apr-2009.
After this I had again applied for fresh H1B from another company which has been approved and I have to go for the H1 interview. Can you please help in aswering the below questions in DS156.
1. Have you ever been refused a US visa?
2. Have you ever violated the terms of a US visa or been unlawfully present in, or depoted from the United States?
What should be the best answer to the above question.
