    OPT and H1b visa stamping plans

    kumar_grr is right . I would suggest you to go while you are on F1. Although if you have all documentatin there is nothing to worry for h1 Stamping .
  3. 1. Can a first time H1B visa approval go to Canada for stamping? > You should go to canada only if you have masters from US 2. What Consulate location is the best (in terms of results) in Canada to go for H1B Visa stamping? >If you have proper docuentation consulates doesnt matter. 3. As i work in layers model (Employer-Mid vendor- Client), my Client's policy does not allow them to provide me any client letter but they can provide me other evidence which can proof my employment with them as a >I have seen some similar cases . But IMO its not a good idea to go without a client letter .

    DS-160 Question.

    Yes state all answers in DS160 truthfully rather than landing in to any type of problems at time of interview . Answer it yes and explain it in textbox that is shown at bottom .

I got married on 27th Jan and got my appointment for 3rd Feb . I filled DS 160 and got Appointment on 23rd Jan as Married for me and my wife .
  6. Hi everyone I would like to share my experience with my wife at mumbai consulate on 3rd feb 2012 10am . I am full time employee of company and my company had declined to provide company's tax and employee documents so I was quite worried. My Interview was at 10am and I reached at 9:15 and there was already a really long line there so I will suggest you guys to reach earlier than that. We entered inside at around 9:30am . Inside there were already so many people waiting for token. First finger prints were taken for me and my wife. Than we did wait for about 1.5 hour for our turn for interview . I could hear questions one lady officer was asking.i saw about 8 interviews on that window and only one was rejected. Finally my.token came . There was a white guy taking interview at that window. I gave our passports. 1. What company you are working for? 2. What you will be doing for the company? 3.what will be your day to day activity? 4. So you will be working at xyz's location? 5. What is salary? 6 when you got married? 7. Show me marriage certificate 8.how many people were there in marriage? 9. marriage date? 10.how u guys met? 11. show me wedding photos 12. to my wife : what will u be doing in USA? Did u read this template ? I said yes . And than comes the words I was waiting to hear Thank you sir your visa has been approved and you will receive your passport in 3 to 5 business days Not a sIngle document was asked. I would suggest people to keep marriage album small with main photographs cause I saw 2 people carrying a huge album and had to go through album when officer asked for fire ceremony photos. I carried only 70 wedding and reception photos. I saw 5 interviews where hey were asked work location related questions . And just for 1 person she said everything on your case looks ok but we needs some additional processing to approve your visa.

    Successful H1 and H4 stamping at Mumbai

    I remember that all interviews I see were non FTE interviews . They were all being asked EE related questions like . Where you will be working ? How far is employer from client ? How you communicate to your manager ? How many times ? etc. I heard all of them granted visa . I heard like about 4 inteviews which were EVC or EC model . 3-4 were guys with children they were not asked any EE related question so I guess may be they were FTE . In one case I a lady officer said that "Everything looks good in your case but we need some additional processing. " . One of my friend in EC model got visa with his wife. Other friend with EC model did got 221g. Let me know if you have any other questions .

    Going in Feb 2012 . I am FTE .All those who are going mumbai soon please post your experience .
  18. They might find difference between LCA and your pay rate . But if you can explain the reason there should not be a problem . For example some one can be sick/Family reasons and worked less amount of hours and salary might be cutoff .

  21. I see following answer about the family application . Lets say I just fill my own DS160 . And I am not using "Thank You" page option to add my wife and fill in a separate DS 160 for my wife . Is that ok ? Can I schedule appointment using separate DS 160 applications ? Thanks for your help I am travelling with my family or as part of a group. Can I create a family or group application? Yes. On the "Thank You" page you will see an option to create a family or group application. When you select this option, certain information from your application, such as destination, will automatically be imported to and displayed on a new application. Please note that if you use this option you will need to create an individual application for each of your family members traveling with you or for each individual within the group.

    Two DS160 and Appointment confusion

    I am really sorry for not being clear. My point was that lets say I fill up my own DS 160 and I want to fill out my wife's DS 160 application separately rather than doing it from "Thank You" page will it make any difference . Yes I want to book appointment with my wife together.

    Two DS160 and Appointment confusion

    I mean that paragraph mentions that you can add family at "Thanks page" . But lets say i dont fill in at thanks page and start a new DS160 . Will there be any difference between filling them separately .
