The INS Zoom immigration conference was on Oct 28, 2015 in Bangalore, India. We had participation from the Industry, US Consulate and several law firms from across the globe. Zoomlee was a sponsor and is proud to share some freehand sketch the participants created as part of fun at the conference! We are pleased to post some of the winning entries of the art contest. Watch out for more in this space.
At Zoomlee we take compliance seriously. Have you heard of the CXO who needs to travel tomorrow for an important business meeting and finds the passport has expired? There are several instances of business travelers, international students, expats and casual tourists stranded because of an expired passport. Any travel document that is not tracked for expiration can put you in trouble – from being stranded to landing in jail! We have heard people saying that they keep their documents safe in an email attachment or in cloud storage boxes. We thought we should go beyond that and set up alerts so that you stay compliant. It is simple and easy to set up and track any of your documents. Take a picture of the document, open in Zoomlee and securely store under the document category defined. You can also add any email attachment the same way! We do not want you to be a Forgetful Jones!
Are you someone who arrived in the US for work or study in one of the Universities? I am sure you are tracking to make sure all your immigration documents are secure and are valid. If you are not using Zoomlee, then it may be a good idea to get started now. Besides tracking all your documents and getting expiration alerts on time, Zoomlee also helps track your case status instantly. Most of you would be filing an extension of your work permit or other documents needed to stay and continue work or study. Now, you just need to store your case number in the Zoomlee app and check whenever you want to see the status of your case.
No more logging in to your computer and going to the USCIS website to check your status. Tap on the case number and you will get the status from the USCIS site instantly. At Zoomlee we are constantly looking at ways to make sure you and your family are compliant and stay stress free. Happy Holidays!
Zoomlee is a star in my eyes and here’s why…
I am an avid traveler, and love to be on-the-go exploring places. This calls for effective and safe organization of important documents, without which I can’t get far. With the new Zoomlee app, my dedicated time to prepare documents for my travel has vanished. Prior to my travel dates, I don’t set aside a day anymore, to merely sort out files and documents, gathering important documents that I would require. Zoomlee has taken away that extra time and effort off my shoulders.
With Zoomlee’s incredibly intelligent features, I can upload necessary documents with relevant dates from anywhere at any time, and forget about them. Here is the coolest part, Zoomlee even notified me when my passport was about to expire. Now, that’s what I call a SMART app! I was able to share documents with my family members, hassle-free. There was no need to hunt for a local scanning store carrying around my documents. As long as I was connected to the internet, sharing documents was only a click away.
Not to mention, calling for emergency help is made easier than ever before. One can find the nearest police stations, hospitals, consulates, embassies, and more only on Zoomlee. Personally, I am not aware of an application that makes traveling overseas easier than Zoomlee does. No matter which corner of the world I am in, whatever may be the local time, Zoomlee has always got my back. I say this with first-hand experience using Zoomlee to my satisfaction. Download it NOW my friends!

We all know how painful it can get at the end of the year when we need to file our taxes.
Step 1 : You need to get W2 from your employer.
Step 2 : You need to look at all your investments and get the required 1099 forms from various institutions and keep them safely until you are ready to file your return.
Step 3 : You also need to report any foreign income under the FBAR (Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts) and need to get bank statements and tax withholdings from your overseas banks.
Added to this is the complexity of tracking the number of days spent outside your home country to determine resident status for tax filing. You can now store all this information securely in Zoomlee under finance category and send all this information to your CPA with just one click through an email. And yes, tax tracking days has been made simpler with Zoomlee’s automatic GPS based tracking when you travel. Enjoy your travel and let Zoomlee take care of filing your taxes for 2015!
