    DS 160 form questions for visitor visa

    1) It should not matter. Both addresses are pretty close. 2) Pick the right one.

    Bar Code on Appointment Confirmtion and DS-160 mismatch

    Hi, Can you please let me know outcome of the interview and their experience. Thanks, Raj
  3. Hi, As far as I know.. 1. Yes 2. You don't have to go for H4 Stamping again even if your husband changes his employer. But carry his new I797 in port of entry. 3. If your new H1 is going to start from Oct 1st you will be in H4 until then, so I believe you can go and come back with the existing H4 visa until Oct 1st.
  4. Even if you opt for Markham, your passport will go to Brampton first and then come to Markham. It happened in my case and to couple of my friends as well.
  5. Brampton is one of the suburbs of Toronto. Based on my experience your passport will be sent to this location first and then transfer it to other if you choose another pickup location at the time of appointment. So it may save little time if you choose Brampton.
  6. Hi, My H1B visa got approved in Toronto on 27-Dec. This is my H1B renewal on I-140. Below are the questions asked in my interview. Is this your first time or renewal? How long have been working for this company? What is your salary? Where do you live? What is your highest degree and major?

    Passport pickup location after H1B stmping

    Yes you can. It might delay 1 or 2 more days because vancouver is far from Ottawa.
  9. You can go and come with the existing visa and new I-797 (if you have already started working for new company), otherwise you can show your old I-797 because it is valid until Jun-2014. I don't exactly understand your visa extension concern which you've mentioned.
  10. Don't worry you are good to go with your current passport. I was in the same situation and got my visa approved couple of weeks back.

    Visa approved in Toronto on 27-Dec

    I have been working with my current employer for over 3 years and I have my 140 with the same company. I don't think there is any issue in your case if you have everything in place.

    Reentry question

    Its advisable to go back to India and come later to US. I have seen people going to other country instead of India and re-enter to US, but they were denied entry in port of entry. If you are lucky they might accept.
  16. Guys, My Interview was on 27th Sep. It was a pretty short inverview for me. Asked a couple of questions. -What do you work as, whom do you work for and how long have you been with that company? -Do you work at the client side and how long have you been working for that client? (Mine is EC model) Take every document that you can think of because I have seen other VO in another window who was asking many questions and documents. But don't worry most of the people got visas. Most important thing is take a recent photograph with you (less than six months old) especially if the photograph which is in your DS-160 confirmation page matches with any of the photos in your passport. They sent many people back to a photo studio to bring new photograph. This will delay the process atleast 1 hr. Don't fall into this hassle. Any questions are welcome!

    H4 visa Hyderabad - VFS Drop Box

    Hi, I have few questions regarding the H4 visa stamping in Hyderabad, 1) Does the applicant need to be in person for dropping the documents, or anybody from the family can submit the documents at VFS? 2) Can we submit the documents in VFS before marriage however would be attending the visa interview after marriage. For example, if the marriage is on oct,17 can we book the visa interview date on oct,19, can we submit the documents on Oct,14? This is because we have no enough time to submit the documents after marriage wait for 4 working days and then attend the interview. I would be very thankful if anyone would help me out on these quesitons. Thanks in Advance....

    Successful Visa Stamping - Ottawa

    sreddy123, the quickest way to get canada visit visa is to apply in person at canadian embassy. If you send it through mail, it will take about 2 weeks. dzboy, those two answers are independent , please look at their corresponding questions in above posts. I got my passport back in 2days while I was in Canada. It took two weeks for canada visit visa. Do not confuse between both. Also you cannot enter US without a passport and valid visa.
