Successful H1b Visa Stamping Experience In KL Malaysia

Posted by: sathya On 07 Aug 2013

Hi Everybody,

Been to H1& H4 visa stamping in KL,Malaysia on August 2nd 2013 (Last friday) Everything went smooth...and Got Visa stamped for 3 yrs :-)

Appointment time :7:40am on Friday
Reached Consulate by :6:40am as there is lot of traffic in KL between 6:00 and 7:00 in the morning (There was already 8 members queue outside the gate)

After finger prints we were called for interview. Must say they were running late ..approximately we were called for interview @ the counter around 9:00am

VO: Good Morning..passports pl.
Hubby: Very GM (and passed 2 passports)

VO: I see only 2 passports here with me. (After seeing my 2 gals inside the cabin long with us)
Hubby: Yes my gals are US citizens.

VO: Ok.
VO: Saw the picture of my hubby in the passport and said "u look so different man.." n smiled

VO asked me :
VO: Is this the same person u got married to ?
Me: "Yes" and smiled.

VO: Why r u guys here in Malaysia?
Hubby: Answered.

VO: Since when?
Hubby: Answered.

VO: Can i see ur previous VISA's as u've been to US before?
Hubby: Sure ! (and handed over his previous passports.)

VO: How long u've been in USA?
Hubby : Answered.

VO: Have u overstayed?
Hubby: Answered.

VO: Why was ur H1b extension denied?
Hubby: Answered.

VO: How long are u planning to stay in USA?
Hubby: Answered.

All this while he was typing something and writing something on a post-it.

VO: Whats ur highest degree?
Hubby: Answered

VO: Can i see ur graduation certificate ?
Hubby: Sure (passed his Engg degree certificate)

Again he was staring @ the computer for 2 mins.

VO: Can i see ur marriage certificate?
Hubby: Sure (Passed it)

Again he was staring @ his computer for a while...and even we were staring @ him ;)

Then Finally after 2 mins he said....
VO: Ok ...Your VISA's are approved.
We : Thank u.

VO: How do u want to collect ur passports?
Hubby: Pick up.

VO: Great..! Good Day !
We: Thanks and Good Day.

and collected all the certificates he passed to us and left the place.
Today after 3 days we got our passports with VISA stamped.

Friends, believe me i was going thru all these forums before going to stamping (since 2 months), could not get good info abt the experience's in KL,Malaysia..all i could get were some real scary experience's back in 2003-2006. No recent experience's. i even posted in forums..but no response...! We were very tensed...but thought lets face it...left everything on GOD and went ahead for stamping...and we got it.

Needless to say as u all know...just be confident,looks like these guys in KL are real cool.
if the case is genuine u will get it.
Relax , trust in god and go get it...Good Luck !!!

Hope my info helps.

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!

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.
