Visa - H1 and H4 Experiences


Posted by: JENNIE On 16 Oct 2014

I never believed in spell casting but After 4 years of dating my hobby, he left me because I lost my womb . I felt like my life has come to an end, I almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to the spell caster called Dr Malawi whom i met online after my friend Tracy told me about how he helped her. She testified about how Dr Malawi brought back her Ex in less than 3 days and reversed the effect of her lost womb, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr Malawi's email address. I decided to give Dr Malawi a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problems to him. In just 3 days, my Hubby came begging. We resolved our issues, and we are even happier than before, am pregnant now to God be the glory. Dr Malawi is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man... Come to think of it I didn't pay much and all I have to do is send him little 250 dollars which he used in providing the materials used for the spell. Even my pastor said that God works mysteriously, that some men are used by God to help others. If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems for you. Contact Dr malawi anytime, he is the answer to your problems. Here's his contact ( via his mobile number +27620171252

H1B Interview At Chennai Consulate Story

Posted by: Rohit On 15 Oct 2014

Hi Guys,

Today I had attended the H1B interview at Chennai consulate. I want to share my experience because I prepared well but still lot of nervousness and as per my preparation I'm not upto the mark in my interview. Finally the interviewer was kind to alot me the visa without much troubling me.
Very small and very important things at the interview
Don't be nervous(I couldn't stop it but tried to control it)
Don't practice any thing
Don't listen to anyone till u go to the interview(let the mode be passive)
Activate all your sense's while interview
Prepare for the worst experience for 5 mins
Confidence should be obvious

Ok coming to my interview

9th Oct 2014 was my OFC appointment at 3.30 pm
Earlier there was a small drizzle but within no time Chennai catch up the heat
I went at 2.45 fully sweating, they allowed us only at 3.30
Before we observe some cooling of air conditioner my OFC is done
General checking s sticker was attached and token was given. Seen the screen there where around 8 tokens before me so I was seeing back but in one shot all the tokens were displayed including my token.
I was checking the counter and went within no time that guys as taken my finger prints and foto and asked me to leave
I prepared a lot but nothing really worked there. No hi hello no wishes
Nothing. I was irritated that I was not able to perform. Slept for 1 hour and felt better. Spoke to my brother and discussed about few questions as he was already there for 7 years there.

Next day(The big day)
Just make sure u do normal things don't start ur morning which is not comfortable
At interview tried to be cool and full passive mode till the interview
Entered the second building with all the routine check ups, given a token and finger print was verified and then sitting in waiting hall where u can here n c interview but don't bother just ignore. I tried to listen to the questions and tried to prepare my answers but don't do it
My token was displayed and was waiting in the queue. I had a look at the interviewer he was around 40age and appeared to be a serious guy. I prepared for the worst seeing him and the interviews he was taking. One guy was wearing company I'd card, he just pointed out and asked him to remove as this is not his company. I was like suprised to that.
The guy before me went to the interview, I was tring to be normal with a smile on the face.
He went for a business visa and the interviewer didn't asked anything just said ur visa is approved.
I was suprised and fumbled a bit and jumped to the interviewer.
I have taken lot of documents and I prioitixed and taken 2 set of documents folders with me and kept rest in the cover got it with me.
I went and kept the cover down and kept the folders side by where the interview can see it
Given my passport
he checked something and asked the first question so u r going to work for xyz company
A. I explained it as my emploer is xyz but I will be working for abc client( my brother was saying u would have told yes instead of giving explainations but my arguement was different that how can I say yes when I actually working for abc just the employer is xyz, its upto you whatever seems to be right but just with confidence)
He asked which client and asked me to spell that(this question only because I had given him the explaination but I was ok as I have a answer towards that)
Now I'm bit doutful about the answering internally, meanwhile he checked something in the system about the client I guess
Then he asked something but I heard only lost passport and visas(I missed it because I was not concentrating on what he was asking and thinking about the answered questions, please don't do this, concentrate on mic u speak and speaker where the interviewer speaks.
I answered had German Visa again thinking I would have told Schenzen visa.
Then the interviewer told Sir please listen to the questions carefully and anwser(then taught its gone)
Asked the questions agian Do u have any valid US visa?
I said No
Then next he told UR VISA Approved and said something giving the form but hardly I heard something after approved.

Later realized that when I going back to bangalore that I didn't pay any fees for couirer and tension started again then I called to the customer care then they confirmed that they are no charges as of now. they stopped taking itseems.

After all this also I got this visa only because I think
I was confident in answering whatever they ask irrespect the the question they ask
My documnets where clear with all the details relevant, thanks to my comapany
Last but not least I got already stamped with schenzen visa twice before(he might think he has gone outside India and he definetely knows things around)

Hope this helps someone

Visa Is Approved At Hyderabad Consulate On 1st Oct

Posted by: IBMHYD On 06 Oct 2014

I have attended visa interview on 1st Oct and it went fine (Visa got approved)….Attended interview with family (Wife and 2 kids (4yrs boy 1yr old girl))
Working for US based MNC from last 4 and half years and having total 8 and half years experience.
Visa Priority: BEP
Consulate Location: Hyderabad
Booked Appointment on 16th September
OFC : 18th September
Appointment time is 3:30PM, we reached there around 2:30 and they asked us to wait up to 3:00. As we have 2 small kids, they allowed us inside straight away by avoiding Q line.
One person at main door is checking passports, DS160 confirmation page and visa appointment confirmation.
Then, second person is entering our DS 160 application number in his tablet and checking, and then they allowed us inside.
While generating bar code, person at counter asked couple of questions.
1. “Have you ever modified DS-160”: I told “NO”, then he repeated same question, they I said, ‘Yes, while filling the form we need to get some details from employer, those details I have updated’.
2. “What is purpose of visit”? I said, it’s “Work Assignment”. Then he said, ‘OK’ and asked to proceed inside.
3. At photo taking & Finger printing counter, there is no Q and I’m first person, lady asked for my finger prints and taken photo. They send my wife to separate counter. For our kids they scanned the photos, which we have carried.
That’s all over, and we came out in 10-15 mins.

For visa interview, I got very long gap and I gone through all different user experience in this forum.
Visa Interview:
Time is at 9:30, we reached consulate office by 8:00 and we waited 20 mins (Thought they may not allow 1 and half hour early) and started in the line at around 8:40
Initially (At main gate) they manually checked for the visa interview confirmation and passport and allowed inside.
In the first counter scanned bar code (pasted at OFC) and given token number and asked to proceed further.
Next is security check (similar to airport final security check), and they asked put all the belongings in a tray (Including wallet, Belt, lady ornaments, etc.).
We entered to a common area, one lady assisting there and she asked me to put my passport and Original I797 together and asked us to wait in the common area.
Then, I observed already so many people are waiting over there. My token number is 200+ and that time running token number is 100+, thought we may get our number faster as we have infant baby. Waited 15-20 mins (By that by kids started making big noise), then checked with that lady is there any faster processing possibility as we have kids, she told ‘no’, we have to wait.
Finally we waited for around 1and half hour, by that all the preparation and enthusiasm is gone in the interest of covering 2 kids.
Finally our turn came after 10:00, no one is there at counter, and we went straight away.
Me: Good morning, how are you doing today?
VO: smile and fine
VO: Passport please
Me: Given passport
VO: Which company you are going to work for?
VO: Who is your client?
VO: What is your salary?
VO: What is your highest qualification?
Me: Master of Computer Applications, M.C.A
VO: To My wife: scan your left hand four fingers
She has done
VO: TO ME: Scan your right hand four fingers.
Me: Done
Now golden words came: “Your visa is approved”, I said than you and came out.
He has not asked any other document like: I797, etc.
After came back to office, I checked status by using DS-160 APP ID, it is showing….
Application ID or Case Number: XXXXXXXXXX
Case Creation Date: 30-Sep-2014
Status Updated Date: 01-Oct-2014
Interview is less than a min and I thought VO make me to engage for a while, when he is typing (Copy/Paste) something on his system.
My suggestion is: Proceed in the line at main gate to go inside as early as possible and plan to maintain your kids properly.

H1b Visa Stamping At Canada

Posted by: Pritesh On 04 Oct 2014

Hello ! There.
I was so nervous before starting this procedure to get H1b visa stamping at US Embassy - Ottawa, Canada. Recently, I got my H1b visa renewal within USA. I never had H1b visa stamping before after I first come on F1 visa. I changed my status from F1 > work on OPT for about 1 year > H1b visa 2011 with no stamping > revelry renewed H1b visa in 9/2014. I got my appointment on 2nd Oct 2014 in Canada.

It was very surprising for me as very easy and quick. Less then 15 seconds with VO. Please bring latest Visa Photo which does not match with photo in passport. It's gonna be big issue otherwise. However, they did not ask me for photo as I have uploaded recent one online while filling DS 160 form.

Steps for going inside the U.S. embassy :

1. Outside security guard checking
2. Pass by security like airport - allowed me documents bag which I was using for laptop. Only documents nothing els. Not even a pen or pin. Make sure.
3. Checking passport / i797/ and photo for some people. She just compare my photo with passport and DS 160 conformation page. And said if inside they want they will ask. And asked me to go to window 7 for tocken.
4. At window 7, gave passport + DS 160 conformation page + I797 = she put all these in one yellow folder and gave me just a tocken and asked me to wait for my call.
5. My tocken number was called to come at window 6 for finger printing. Then after finish all 10 fingers printing gave me that yello folder and kept that tocken as on folder also written same tocken number and asked me to wait for interview call.

These all took from 9:20 am enterace inside the embassy to 10:30 am waiting for interview call. Finally being called at window 2.

Me: Good Morning !
VO: Good Morning ! Why do you want to go US?

Me: I want to resume my work.
VO: where do you work?

Me: I work at a skilled Nursing Facility called XXX.
VO: what do you work?

Me: I am a physical Therapist at XXX
VO: (with surprise) oh Physical therapist. Where did you go to school for PT?

Me: I have completed my Undergraduation from India. Then I completed my Master and Doctorate from US.
VO: great. (Was pointing something in computer and marked on paper) go to this link to track your passport.

Me: thanks so much Sir. You made my day. Have a great day ahead.
VO: you too.

And all set. Step out of VO with being on 7th sky.

Next day early morning I got email for counselet regarding way bill number. And I will have my passport in hand on Monday most probably.

So Thursday interview. Approved and Friday got status for passport and still waiting to get status for pick up at Loomis Branch.

Good Luck.

VISA Interview Experience Hyderabad Consulate

Posted by: kskkm On 30 Sep 2014

My OFC date was on 9/25/2014 at 08:30 AM.
My Consular date was on 09/26/2014 at 08:30 AM. I attended interview with myself,my spouse and my kids.

The Process as follows.
1. I reached consulate by 07:45 AM and was wating in queue.
2. After 15 minutes, One guy came and verified our passport numbers in a tab and sent us inside
3. We collected token number and went through security check. they checked all my belongings.
4. After security check(Similar to airport), before waiting area, they asked our passport and I-797 and they kept them together and given to me back. They asked us to sit until my token comes on screen.
5. Once token comes on screen, we went to the window as displayed on screen and waited there to complete three more interviews before us.

Our turn came, as like others i was bit tensed and below was the conversation

ME: Good Morning Sir
VO: Good Morning After some time.
VO :Passports Please.
ME : Gave them to him. Also,passed I-797 after sometime though it was not asked.
VO : Asked to provide finger prints of my spouse
My spouse: done
VO: Asked my spouse and kids to wait aside as they were not needed after finger prints.
Me: They were standing aside(besides to me).
VO : Who is your employer
ME : Answered
VO : Who is your client
ME : Answered
VO : Where is your client location?
ME : Answered
VO : What is your client business
ME : Answered
VO : What are going to do at client location?
ME : Explained my responsibilities
VO : What does your client do?
ME : Answered.
VO : What is project name again?
Me : Answered
VO : Show me your client letter
ME : Given
VO : What is your highest qualification
ME : Master of computer applications, MCA
VO : What is your salary?
ME : Mentioned as per LCA
VO : He started typing in computer and did for long time.
Me : I was just kept quite and was seeing him while he was typing
VO : After three minutes, he asked to provide my finger prints
Me : done
VO : Given I-797 and client to me back.
Me : I have taken documents back
VO : Collect your passports in 2 to 3 days(It was not clear to me)
Me : I did not confirm again and just said thank you, sir and left the window.

We came to home and checked our VISA applications status as per DS-160 application numbers. My status was showing as "Administrative processing" while my spouse and kids were shown as "issued". Again i was bit tensed, started checking the status for every one hour and at 4 PM my status was changed to "Issued". Then got much relief.
