  1. Just out of curiosity, If the Client replies it is our policy not to answer those questions and embassy should contact the employer, will the visa be rejected ?

    221g white form-Ottawa Sept 17

    This is the regular questionaire they used to send few months back. Guys, verify and let ppl know here if they still ask the same questions. The U.S. Embassy Ottawa occasionally contacts petitioners and client companies involved with Non-Immigrant visa petitions in order to verify that information presented to the U.S. Consulate is accurate and valid. Please note that the H1B petition was filed by XXXX I would greatly appreciate if you would answer the following questions: Applicant: XXXXXX Who (you/preferred vendor/petitioner) supervises the applicant, and is such supervision off-site or on-site? 1.) If the supervision is off-site and performed by the petitioner, how does the petitioner maintain such supervision i.e. weekly calls, reporting to the main office routinely, or site visits by the petitioner? 2.) Who has the right to control the work of the applicant on a day-to-day basis if such control is required? 3.) Who determines the direction of the project? 4.) Who determines the applicant’s daily activities? 5.) Who provides the tools or instrumentalities for the applicant to perform the duties of employment? 6.) Who hires, pays, and has the ability to fire the applicant? 7.) Who claims the beneficiary for tax purposes?
  3. My Visa got approved on Sept 26th and got passport back on Sept 28th. The following were the questions asked for my interview. How long with same employer ? How long with same Client ? Same time with employer and Client ? Yes Why changed ur employer ? Global company Client letter ? Showed an email that it is their policy not to give client letter. Which university ? Major ? Computer Science Masters ? Visa approved. Explain everything in only one or 2 lines. Other ppl who were interviewed were asked similar questions. If there are any labor complaints against your employer, they are checking all the documents in detail though they finally approve your visa if everything is alright. Good Luck Guys !

    Successful Stamping Vancouver, Sept 26th

    @idcagreencard: If your manager does not give it, try emailing your HR about it. But someone has to mention that it is policy of the client not to give a client letter. I do not know if print out of some work emails will work out or not.

    Successful Stamping Vancouver, Sept 26th

    Maddy, In your case, it may still work out till the manager information is provided under it in the email. But I would advice you to get few more words from your manager in the email. If he is not willing to do that, atleast try to get another email from HR and show both the emails in the interview. The following is the format that I used in my email. It is the policy of <Client Name> to not provide this type of letter. Manager Name Manager Title Client Name Client Address Manager ph no: Manager cell number Manager email From: myemail Sent: Thursday, September 20, 2012 10:17 AM To: manager email Cc: my email id @employer.com , myEmployerManager@employer.com Subject: Request to provide me a Client Letter for my H1 Visa Stamping at Vancouver,Canada Hello <ClientManagerName>, Can you please provide me a Client letter with following details for my H1 Visa stamping at Vancouver, Canada ? 1. Project name and my responsibilities in the project. (<ProjName>) 2. Project duration mentioning the high possibility of my contract extension for a long term. 3. Work Location address in <CityName> (<Work Address>) 4. Relationship between <Client Name> and my employer <Employer Name>, my employer's right to control me and mentioning how I communicate with my employer (through phone). Thanks, My Name <My Title as in LCA> <Employer Name> Mobile: Desk: <MyEmailID@Employer.com> | <Employer Web link> <MyEmailID@Client.com | <Client Web Link>

    Sep24 Or Oct1 Week - Vancouver Dates

    My 2 cents from personal experience, the dates will not open up immediately when you release it for U.S Embassy in Vancouver. It will take few hours.
  9. We are a group of ppl going in same week. Email me ur contact info at loka dot abhishek at gmail dot com

    H1B open slots in October @ Vancouver

    Even if someone cancels it will take atleast 1-2 hrs for the date to show up on screen. This is from my personal experience.

    Did you try contacting your client manager and check if any questions were asked on phone or email ?

    Valid H1B stamp travel to US before Oct 1

    This is the email I got from Vancouver U.S embassy. You’re allowed to seek admission into the States 10 days prior to your employment start date. Please note your admissibility will be determined by a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer at the intended port of entry. Regards, Nonimmigrant Visa Unit US Consulate General Vancouver OP3

    Loomis Branch close to US consulate in Vancouver

    I think it's richmond
  18. Is anything regarding who controls your work mentioned in the email (Employer-Employee relationship) ?
  19. @rareone Congrats ! Can you please email me your 'email format' at loka.abhishek@gmail.com . It would really helpful.
  20. My friend's client might introduce one extra vendor in the middle to satisfy their policy of assigning x projs to minority firms. Will it create a problem when he goes for stamping, as that layer did not exist during H1 petition and now exists when he goes for stamping ? Will the embassy have access to the documentation provided to USCIS during H1 petition ?

    EVC = Suicide !

    JoeF: I meant to say, companies will have to keep generating work for full timers by bidding for new projects or by creating new products if they r product based company. They do not have the luxury of firing the full timers when they do not have any more projects or when the economy gets bad. It will damage company's reputation and their stock value if they fire them.

    EVC = Suicide !

    @Joef Full times are only taken if they have projects that last forever. If they need more people ONLY for one or few projects they will NOT hire full times. If they hire full times and fire after the project, the company's reputation and share value will go down.
  23. It says Client Letter is not mandatory, but some kind of evidence to prove employer-employee relationship is required
  24. What are the options to answer an RFE on H1 petition for Client letter, when Client has a policy of not giving client letter. Will an email from Client-Manager stating that it is against their policy to provide client letter work ? Are their any other options ?

    Counting Years of Experience

    I have a same question. My employer gave me training for 3 months on OPT and then I moved to to a new employer after that where I was getting paid. Can I put this as my experience or is it counted as unemployed period ?
