Drive time 22mins to Consulate from Airbnb traffic is not horrible in YVR to drive. YVR you see lots and lots on asians like lots and lots of desis in EWR Dec 16th Interview day (9:45am appointment) Reached there 8:00am parked car right across parking ($20 total)walked to the consulate (raining) They wont let you inside until your time , dont take phones/backpacks or any electronics (its on their website) Security will get your appointment sheet ,passport and check your docs and make you stand in the line if you got a smartwatch they will give you locker at the security(watches not mentioned on their website) Next step follow the queue for security check 1st floor in consulate building just like airport check. Next they will take your appointment sheet and passport stick a sticker with the confirmation barcode from the confirmation sheet(DS160), if you changed or modified your DS160 or submitted a new one please take the latest appointment page and mention during that time they wont ask you about it. Next counter will take your finger prints 4 fingers and then the thumbs then the wait time to catch the elevator to 20th floor. 20th floor queue for the interview . VO- GM ME-GM hw r u VO - PPT and I797 please ME-Given VO-Which company ME -told VO-how long working for them ME-told VO- Oh that company ME- you lived in EWR? VO-yeah long ago are those places still available or closed ME- they still exist and they are under construction or enhancement VO-You havent been out of country since you entered 10yrs ME-Yes i did not get time with my work schedule and moreover my parents and her parents got visa to visit us so i did not feel the need to travel outside of US.Now have plans to take a cruise so if i need to return i need VISA. VO-Did they file GC ME- yeah handed over i-140 copy VO-Well it was nice chatting with you, im approving your visa collect it 3-4 business days ME- like wise ..have a good day Rushed out picked my car and drove around YVR, in my case no LCA/I129/W2/paystubs asked . Waiting for my ppt pick up did not see any update(Mon-Thur) only its says Admin processing. But Thru morning it says delivery EOD and at 11.00am says delivered at pickup location so rushed to loc by 11.20 to pick up ppt. next morning informed Airbnb host about leaving 1day early dropped car at YVR and flew back Basically lessons learnt --Be always honest /casual/confident , they are all professionals and they must have interviewed many folks daily all you need to have is the right paper work and be confident then you should be good. all the best to everyone who have opted for Vancouver loc. Note- Please share your experiences to everyone so it can help future folks who are attending visa interviews . This forum helped me a lot and reading thru all others experiences made me feel confident for the interview. @Gopal Krishan thanx for all your help answering my questions ..

  10. Hi Forum, I have a question , i have i-140 approved from Comp A and now im planning to move to Comp B (Prime vendor). based on i-140 i get 3yrs. Now PV applies for PERM and if something goes wrong can i resign and go back to my parent company which filed my perm ? Will there be any issues? Please do let me know
  11. Hello Forum, I need your suggestions .. Currently my wife is on H1b for indian consulting company CompA approved i-140 ead 3 yrs ago and recently got 3 more years extenstion with same i-140. Now the client (non-profit) wants to transfer her h1b and offer her a FTE with approved i-140. now the questions 1. She will convince Original company CompA to leave her existing H1/-140 without cancelling is it possible?, can she switch back if any issues. 2.I read online non-profit to profit (CompA)cannot be h1b transferred so if something goes wrong with the client (we never know elections and all )she cannot go back to (CompA) is it true? if so what is the resolution 3.She got her i140 approved in the 4the year and she has been using the i140 extension since so do you think she still has the 2yrs recapture period out of 6years to transfer. Please provide your inputs so we can plan accordingly ..

    Hii Manohar, Congrats on your approval under EB3 . im also in the same boat like you following the same re-filing path. I would like to know how long did it take to get response under refiling. Did u file first under EB2 and then EB3. my attorney kept goofing up everytime .can i switch from EB2 and do i refile under EB3 how does that work, will USCIS determine EB3 if they think we r not eligible ? Can you please throw some light on this.
