I am an Indian citizen and currently a resident of France (on Scientific/D visa until 30/04/2015). A university in the USA that hired me as a faculty recently petitioned for an H1B for me. I received the I-797C form from the USCIS notifying me/the university that the H1B application was submitted.

However, some details on page 1 of the I-797C form elude me. In the screen shot below (with personal details redacted), what exactly does "Class Consulate / POE OCC 90" signify?

A cursory search of the intergoogles revealed not much.

From Immihelp and Department of Labor OCC 90 is an occupation code:

OCCUPATIONS IN EDUCATION

090 OCCUPATIONS IN COLLEGE AN UNIVERSITY EDUCATION

091 OCCUPATIONS IN SECONDARY SCHOOL EDUCATION

092 OCCUPATIONS IN PRESCHOOL, PRIMARY SCHOOL, AND KINDERGARTEN EDUCATION

094 OCCUPATIONS IN EDUCATION OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES

096 HOME ECONOMICS AND FARM ADVISERS

097 OCCUPATIONS IN VOCATIONAL EDUCATION

099 OTHER OCCUPATIONS IN EDUCATION

The rest seems to be more of an issue with formatting the form then anything else and should read:

Class | Consulate / POE | OCC

  • Thank you! However, I notice that my I-797c doesn't have a consulate on it. Any idea why that might be? – dearN Oct 7 '14 at 18:03
  • @drN Because this is only to notify you that your application had been received. – Karlson Oct 7 '14 at 18:42
