Mine is a new H1 after a 221g refusal in a EC model and now my client has processed my H1. I and my wife went for H1 and H4 stamping to the chennai consulate. After a few general questions, the lady VO said your visa is approved and i am waiting for a final approval and was looking at the system monitor for a few seconds. Then said we need to do some check and you don't have to worry as i don't see any issues. You just need to wait for a few weeks and you don't need to submit any documents. She handed us a small pink sheet with a case number on it and asked us to go to counter 31 where another lady asked me about any countries i visited apart from US, details about my first employment, details about any siblings and kept both our passports and the employment support letter which i got from my new petitioner. She then told it may take anywhere between 4-8 weeks, however the pink slip says it may take 8 - 12 weeks for processing. Any one had the similar case and got stamping after that? Please share your experiences about how long it took and what kind of checks they did.
