-> we are approving your VISA she told --> thanks a lot mam good day to you she replied you tooo she kept my passport with her

after two days i got a message that u can collect your passport
i collect it from tenampet

Mnadatory documents:

*recomended letter from employee/any letter from the company who recomends you for the job
*client letter
*tax returns of your company

H1B And H4 Visa Experience In Chennai Consulate

Posted by: deepthi On 16 Dec 2014

Me and my husband went to the chennai consulate last september for H1B and H4 visa stamping. He was the first employer from his company to be sent to US. We are thinking of a smooth process, but things did nt go so well in the beginning. We were given a yellow Slip and were asked to wait. After one hour, we were called and interviewed for almost an hour. The questions were about the company mostly. My husband anwered everything confidently. After about two hours of wait, we finally listened to the golden words " Visa approved,I m taking your passports". It was a huge sign of relief.
TIPS: Please confident while answering the officer's questions. We are just for a visa, and its not a sin. Any inconfident reply may create doubts and lead to further issues. Be prepared and reply with utmost confidence. All the very best.

Visa Approved

Posted by: Rose On 10 Dec 2014


I attended h1 interview in Hyderabad consulate on December 3rd 2014 8:30 slot. My visa was approved but the status was changed to issued on
on December 10 th 2014. It took a week to update and stamp passport for some reason.The status said that my passport is still with US Embassy/Consulate and after a week it changed to passport is ready for pickup. I thought it went to admin processing and waiting for the updates. I was not issued any slip and VO said my visa was approved. I thought my experience might be helpful to ones who are on same boat.
No need to panic once your visa is approved and you are not given any slips. I was not asked even a single document including I797.VO just took passport.Below are the questions I was asked.

1) date of birth ( I think it did not show up on screen)
2) whom do you work for?
3) Who is the client?
4) what do you do for the client?

VO said my visa is approved.
