No matter what kind of visa it is. - Fortunately I went to Men VO. It took me 3-4 questions and 5 min to complete interview. - Question he asked 1. When did you book your appointment? Ans: approx xxx time before 2. What is your Visa status in Canada? Ans: Visitor 3. Is your employer XXX company? Ans: Yes 4. Do you only work with XXX company or work for any one else also? Ans: Just for XXX company. 5. So do you do Database maintenance work for XXX company? Ans: I'm a programmer analyst and I do different kind of things like Requirement gathering,Analysis and design, Creating web applications, deploying and yes also maintaining Database servers. - Then he said your visa is approved and you get an email once it is ready. -- So this is my story of interview. But I went along with a friend who happens to go to a Women VO. - We both went to the interview almost same time, but by the time my friend completed his interview, I completed my interview, came down, had a bagel and coffee (You can imaging how long it took). - He had the bad visa experience with lot of questions and showing documents. It started with same as my questions, then it wen ooooon. Some questions he got is - You got 5 years of student visa, why did you completed your masters in 2 years? Did you completed fast? Ans: Masters program is only for 2 years. - did you do job in OPT in the same field as masters? Ans: Yes - So you came as a student status, did you applied for status change? Ans: He showed I-797 - She again asked, "I'm repeating again, did you applied for status change when you changed from Student to H1b"? Ans: Then he did understand what to show, he just showed I-129 petition and LCA( and she was expecting I-129) - you said ur working from 3 years bu ur I797 says only from July 2014? Ans: it is H1B amendment as I changed my client, I applied for amendment. - So did you applied for status change during ur first I-797? ANs: Luckily he got I-129 for previous I-797 as well. and he showed. - What did you do after your Student Ans: I worked for XXX company on OPT. - What is OPT? Ans: He answered - Did you applied for status change for Student visa to OPT as well? Ans: We don't need to, we can do work during OPT and showed OPT cards. - Why you came here now? why didn't you came for stamping when u got ur H1B visa? And: Have some out of country plans in future and i got some free time now for stamping Finally and fortunately he got all the documents she requested and he got approved. Vo said, you'll receive Passport in a week. These are the questions he remember and there might be some more small questions. So people going to Calgary, Please do carry all documents.

    Canada Visa Slot

    No. But you need to pay the MRV fee for Canada to see the available dates. I think you know this but just to be clear, "You need Canada Visa to go for Stamping"
