    Calgary Oct 10th F1 to H1

    Hello all, I had my F1 to H1 interview in Calgary on Oct 10th. I got it approved. Below is my experience: VO: How long you are working with this employer *********? Me: Said 8 years VO: Then he asked I see another company in DS-160? Me: I explained my previous employer merged with current company so technically I am working same employer for last 8 years. VO: What is your role? Me: I am Database Administrator. VO: your take care of Oracle databases? Me: along with Oracle, I also take care of SQLServer and My SQl databases too. VO: Is your wife working too? Me:**************** VO: Is she on H1b too? Me: ************ VO:Your visa is approved. Oct 11th I received email from Canada post that my passport is picked from consulate and forwarded a link to check status. Oct 12th and Oct 13th: Saturday and Sunday: No update from Canada Post. Oct 14th : Holiday in Canada..so no update from Canada post. Oct 15th : At 11am received email from Canada post that my passport is ready for pick up. Picked up the passport at 11:15 am and flew back to USA same day. Immigration check is in Calgary airport only, they asked me which city I am heading to and my residence address. I was really tensed before interview, but every thing went very smooth. Thanks a lot to this forum which helped me to prepare well.

    Calgary Oct 10th F1 to H1

    I have seen 4 H1b's attended in my time slot and I believe all 4 got approved. I also met a lady, her change of status is denied by USCIS and she got consular H1b, Even H1b stamping is also approved in Calgary.
  3. Hello Viewers, I came to USA in 2009 on F1 visa, Completed Masters in 2011. After that I worked on OPT,OPT-Extension and then I started working on H1b from 2013. I have never been out of country after I started working on H1b. I have my first H1b stamping interview scheduled on Oct 10th in Calgargy Canada Consulate. I am just wondering is it advisable to go to Canada as this is my First H1b stamping. What are the chances of getting approval or 221g? If I get 221g what is time frame to get the Visa approved. I am working on EVC model and working with same employer for last 8 years. Also is this is good time to go to Canada for interview . Any inputs or advise is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Vijay.
