    H1B - Success ..Finally

    @disturbia, one of my friend referred me to his company. It is very difficult to get a new employer from India.

    H1B - Success ..Finally

    @luck2u..my first interview was at Delhi, which was rejected. Second at Mumbai. But consulate doesn't matter much all depends upon your company reputation and experience. @Karna.. yes I got new employer from India only. Well I can't give employer just like that. I have to ask my company first, if they want then I will update this post again.

    H1B - Success ..Finally

    Hi All, Let me present whole story. I went for stamping in Dec 2011, it was EVVC model. So VO refused without looking at any documents and told me that they are sending my application back to USCIS for possible revoke. At that time I just lost hope as it was my first time H1B. Luckily got another employer in April to file a new H1b based on previous approval. So I went again for stamping on 24th May at Mumbai, this time it was FTE (although small company). VO asked few questions and then gave me green 221(g). I submitted documents on 13th June. After one and half a month on 2nd Aug I got another 221(g) via courier to submit few more documents. Which were not ticked in initial 221(g). I submitted documents on 14th Sept. Got mail on 17th from Consulate to submit passport. Today I got my passport back with Visa. Thank God.
  7. Even I also called up customer care today and they told me that my wife needs a petition approved. I don't know what is happening ?. why do my wife needs a approved petition. She is dependent. Nothing is clear @darthvader, can you provide me your mail id so that we can discuss about this. My mail id is svikram12 at gmail. Thanks

    Expected Response from Mumbai Consulate

    @Vivek, consulate means checking via VFS or you have any other mail id of Mumbai Consulate. Thanks
  10. Hi All, Here is my case. H1 Interview : 24th May. (got 221(g) green slip) Docs Submitted : 13th June. Got another 221(g) on 2nd Aug. Docs submitted on 14th Sept. On 17th Sept got mail from consulate to submit passport. Passport submitted on 18th Sept. Since then no response. Since last week they had couple of holidays on 19th and 20th (bharat Bandh). I was hopng to hear this week. But no response. When should I expect a reply from consulate. Another question I submitted my docs on 14th in Delhi and they reached Mumbai on 15th. Then weekend and on Monday I got mail to submit passport which I believe is too early response from Consulate. Any comments from senior members. Thanks

  12. Hi All, I appeared for the H1B interview at Mumbai Consulate on 24th May and I got 221(g) to submit few documents. Which I submitted. After that I again got one 221(g) from Consulate in Aug to submit few more documents. I submitted them last week. Today I go mail from Mumbai Consulate which says Greetings from the Nonimmigrant Visa Section of U.S. Consulate General Mumbai. Please follow the instructions below in order to continue processing your pending visa application further. We are ready for final processing. Please submit your passport and pending letter to the Consulate General via any of the VFS offices. Please carry a copy of this email for ready reference. Please note that this email communication does not confirm that your visa is issued at this time. What are the chances of getting the visa ???, can someone comment on this. I am a FTE of a small company. Thanks

    Visa Stamping

    You should always give correct info. What if they contact your client for verificaton. If you have all the documents then why are you worried, just tell the truth.
