    Vancouver passport return status --Oct 2nd week

    Thanks mygcps,my interview was at 10 AM.CSC website shows as Applicant Status:In transit and the updated waybill no.When checked in the Loomis website,they have a record of my package shipment.So expecting I can pick it up Monday.Hopefully you should be getting yours too shortly. @Sree : The old way bill no from last year's appointment got updated automatically as well the status with the current one.

    Vancouver passport return status --Oct 2nd week

    Just a quick update.Received a mail from loomis on passport pickup. Interview Date:Oct 10th Loomis mail Notification Date: Oct 12th 12:00 AM Assuming I can pick the passport on Monday Oct 14th. Thanks
  5. Hello All, Thanks for viewing my post and special thanks to murthy forum for all the valuable information & discussions related to H1B visas. Just wanted to share my recent visa interview experience at Vancouver consulate on Oct 10th.I assume many of you might know and was discussed many times in the forums about the visa process in this consulate.Apart from this the interview with the VO went on with questions like who is your employer,how long have you been working and the end client details\job responsibilities provided with recent pay stubs and w2's.Overall it was a very nice experience and the VO was very pleasant while interviewing followed by golden words "Your Visa is approved" and provided with a instruction document on how to pick the passport. Just wondering if anyone who has attended interview this week (Oct 7-11)has any updates on the passport pickup status and how long is the usual turn around time.Also a quick pointer here,i have attended the same consulate last year,so the previous way bill no in the CSC account is still showing up.Would it be updated automatically in CSC website after the new way bill no was generated??,please advise. I wish all the future aspirants and who were currently waiting for the passports all the very best & good luck. Thanks
  6. Hi, Please find below comments Can I go for H1b stamping with my current passport ? not advisable - Shall I first get my passport renewed and then go for stamping ?yes - Visa will get stamped on new passport or old passport ?new passport - Is there any impact of getting new passport and then getting stamped ?No
  7. Finally got the passport with Visa approval after a week and collected my passport today. Appointment Date : Sept 10th Loomis Mail Conf: Sept 14th Passport Pick Up :Sept 17th Thanks for all the wishes and I wish all the very best to the future aspirants.
  8. Finally got an email from Loomis @ 7 PM saying that the passport has been picked from consulate and available for pickup next few days.I will pick it up Monday.Unfortunately stuck up for the weekend too.
  9. Hi Sreenath--No updates as of now.Eagerly waiting for tht.looks like we are on the same boat.Pls share any updates to my id @ c.praveen457@gmail.com.
  10. Mine is on Sept 10th ,still not received any mail.In my case,the petition no is not updated in the PIMS update at the time of interview,so might be additional time for processsing than usual.
  11. the1--thanks for the wishes.I got my approval in the month of March ,6 months from now.
  12. Thanks Myvisaaug ,i hope your words will come true and i will get an email at the earliest with no issues. Appuser321--Yes mine is an EVC model.VO didn't asked any document except the questions mentioned above.But its always better to carry all the necessary documents along with the client letter to be on a safe side.
  13. Hello All, I would like to share my experience today with the visa interview at the Vancouver consulate.Had an appointment at 10AM and went through all the screenings prior reaching the VO. Below questions were asked 1.How long have you been with your employer. 2.What is your role and responsibiities 3.Do you have an end client and who is that 4.How long have you been working with that end client 5.Have you been with the same client though you changed your emp (i changed my emp while i was with the same end client) Thats it,didnt even asked for any other documents.He just mentioned he cannot issue my visa today since my petition number is not updated in PIMS database and told me consulate will request for an update and processing can usually take 5 business days. He informed i will be receiving an email when i can pick the ppt from Loomis and also gave me a paper which shows "Was your Visa approved?? " follow below instructions on how to pick the passport I am wondering if there would be any problem for approving my visa considering my petition was not updated yet in PIMs data base?? Also if there is any one else who had the same issue and how long it took for getting the passport back and if the visa is approved??. FYI..the same happened with my previous stamping as well in Chennai,and i got the passport in the next week with Visa stamped Please let me know your experiences ,I can also be reached at c.praveen457@gmail.com. Thanks, Praveen
