Hello All, We are appearing for our Visitor visa interview in US Consulate Chennai in three weeks. I am applying with my wife and my two sons. We are visiting my brother and his family in USA and for tourism for three weeks.
I used to work in US on H1B visa with my family members holding H4 visas. We returned to India permanently and now we want to visit US temporarily on visitors visa. What are the chances getting visitors visa from US Consulate Chennai (Our H1B and H4 visa was issued in US Consulate Chennai)? Most of the forums which I am reading is showing that visitor visas are mostly denied.
Also, I want to know do the consular office know if we had H1B/H4 visa issued to us in the past? Our passports expired and the visa stamp is in the older passport. Of course, we have to list the US visit dates in the DS-160 forms but I want to know if the officer do not ask our older passport then they will be able to know if we visited US in the past or not.
Please help me provide your feedback on this topic. Thank you all!!
