Error In DS 160 After Interview

Posted by: ks On 23 Jul 2013

My wife went for H4 category Visa (Dependent Visa) interview on May 13th 2013 & since then it’s been in admin processing (More than 11 weeks without any update w) ).

After the interview is done i came to know that i have filed a wrong infromation in DS-160 (Instead of answering “YES” for a question which talks about any refusal of visa in past, I answered “NO”, which is wrong, as my wife did got rejected previously for H3 visa.).

Does this cause delay in Admin processing????
Shall i apply for new one?
is here any specials thing which we need to take care while filing a new visa for same category?

My company scheduled visa interview for me (H1) and for my dependents (h4) together. As there is no option to select separate visa interview language for dependents, they selected "English" as a interview language. But my wife doesn't speak English.

Can someone help on how to proceed with this case

H1b Visa

Posted by: Ritu On 29 Jun 2013

Hi,

Thanks to all the experiences posted by many people I got more confidence when I went for my interview.

I got my h1b visa approved last week.

Process was :
Entered got a token and waited.
Once token number was called went in and stood in line.
Got my papers checked and then was sent to hallway to wait for the interview.

During the interview :
All standard questions were asked around job, why am going, my salary, my family, my previous us trips.

Points to note :
Dress well - formal preferred
Be confident and polite
Have all your papers ready and sorted so that its easy to take them out
Make sure you have all your originals you never know what can be asked
Have an excellent understanding of your job and role

Thanks!

Query

Posted by: tomsamuel On 25 Jun 2013

I will be having my H1B visa interview in coming month.When I applied for the same,I was working in a company,but now I switched my job 2 months back.So if anyone has any idea,in the interview,when i'll be asked about my current company,what should I tell them.Should I take name of my previous company(where I was working while filling the petition) or should I tell them that I have changed my company.

H4 Intervew For My Wife In Chennai Consulate

Posted by: Shashi Rao On 18 Jun 2013

H4 Interview scheduled at Chennai consulate on 17th July 2013. She submitted my passport copy and I797. VO asked only two questions how long you had been married? and which company your spouse works?. She had all documents handy but VO did not asked for any document. Finally he said "some documents are missing and it will resolve soon" and they did not issued any 221 slips and VO did not returned her passport.
Not sure what docs are missing? she had all docs but not sure why VO did not asked?
Is that mean Visa is approved? or any slips will be issued later over mail or email for asking us to submit any docs? Visa status is showing as "under Administrative process"

Please share if anyone had same experiance.
