    H1 visa stamping - with 2 petitions

    I had a similar situation when I went for stamping on Sep 30 2011. Current petition valid until Feb 2012 and new petition from Feb 2012 to Feb 2015. went to Hyderabad and got visa that is valid from Oct 2011- Feb 2015. They printed both petition numbers in Annotation section on visa. Here is the link for my experience. http://forum.murthy.com/index.php?/topic/25880-succesful-stamping-in-hyderabad-e-c-sep-30-2011/page__fromsearch__1

    DS-160 Question

    just fill out a new ds-160 and use the new bar code for vfs appointment. you can fill as many ds-160 as u want. Only thing that matters is the Bar code that you use while filling vfs appointment form. The bar code's corresponding ds-160 will be linked to ur appointment. If you have to fill out ds-160 after taking your vfs appointment then your vfs appointmnet will be canceled. you will have to take new appointment after filling new ds-160.

    Client Letter - EC model

    @Vidhya18 I can't really tell you whether its gonna work out or not if you dont have the details in the client letter as stamping varies from case to case. In my case my client is flexible enough to give the client letter in the way I wanted. I prepared the content and client just signed on the letter head. If you see the forums and the document list required in consulate website, project description, itinerary of services, and duration seems important. If possible try to include as much info as possible.if client is not willing to give then there's nothing we can do about it. All the best.

    Succesful stamping in Hyderabad E-C Sep 30 2011

    Landed in Atlanta(POE) today. AT POE officer asked many questions. 1. Who do u work for ? 2. When did u leave USA? 3. When did you depart US before this? 4. how come u stayed in USA even after ur last visa expired? 5. Show me ur H1B petitions 6. How come you have 2 valid petitions? 7. Why is the Visa showing different employer name? 8. when you are on H1 you can only stay for certain period of time.If you include this visa duration and previous stay it exceeds that duration. Howz it possible? 9. I can't give you I-94 for more than 3 years.

    @suman_mca Pls go through my post at the beginning of this thread. Mine is exactly same as yours. My 1st petiton is expiring on Feb 1 2012 and new petition starts from Feb 2nd 2012 to Feb 1 2015 and I had succesful stamping. I got my passport today.On the visa, Issue date is Oct 3rd 2011 and expiry date Feb 1st 2015. On my visa they printed both the petition numbers along with their expiry dates. so total visa validity in my case is 3 years and 4 months.

    @Amair EC model means your employer has direct relation with the client and no middle vendor EVC means your employer-Vendor-Client. means you are working at the client site through a vendor

    @Amair, Yes I have submitted the documents on 26 Sep(Monday). In Hyderabad we have to submit the documents at VFS atleast 3 days prior to the appointment. i,.e if Friday is appointment we need to submit docs on the preceding Monday. docs included -Appoinmentt confirmation, DS-160 confirmation,copy of I-797,USCIS letter, Client letter, Experience letters, Photograph,copy of passport etc. Either applicant or somebody on behalf of applicant can submit the docs at VFS. All these details you can find in VFS site.

    if there is no supervisor from employer then that might violate the employer-employee relation resulting in 221g.

    Hi I attended interview on 30 Sep and its a success. Pls find the post here. http://forum.murthy.com/index.php?/topic/25880-succesful-stamping-in-hyderabad-e-c-sep-30-2011/
  13. hi guys I attended interview today(Sep 30 friday) in Hyderabad Conaulate and mine got approved. I benefitted a lot from this forum and wanted to share the experience so that others can benefit. My post is little bit lenghty as my case is a bit complicated While filling DS-160 first time I filled employer address at "Place where you intend to work" and submitted. So I filled DS-160 again second time and booked appointment as well with vfs but this time I forgot to mention that I have an approved I-140 for "Did anybody file an Immigrant petition for you". So I cancelled the vfs apponintment and filled DS-160 third time and took appointment again. My case: E-C Employer:American Company with 300+ employees. Client: Well known Telecom company in USA Working at same place/client for 2.8 years Common Muslim Name: No Had my first stamping in Chennai with a big Desi MNC in 2007 Submitted documents in advance on preceding Monday at VFS documents included Client Letter and USCIS Letter(attached supporting doc from employer saying about Master Service Agreement with USCIS letter.) All my documentation(USCIS Letter, I-129, LCA,Client Letter and supporting doc from employersaying about Master Service Agreement) had same Client place as the work location.And I made sure that some of the skillset keywords and Itinerary of services match across all the documentation. In DS-160 I filled the same client place as the work location for "Place where you intend to work" Mine was at 8.15 AM VO was a White Guy at counter 13 wearing glasses and very friendly. he didn't ask me any documents like pay stubs/w2/i-129/lca. He was in no mood to look at any docs even if I offered. its very good today all 3 people in front of me got visas. and i didnt see any body getting blue/yellow/pink slips from adjacent counters as well while I was standing there. When I got my docs back before fingerprinting I saw they wrote "PIMS OK and Pls check for petition." I had two valid pettions one was expiring on Feb 1 2012 with my previous company BBBB and second starting from Feb 2nd 2012 with new comapny CCCC My previous company BBBB got merged with current company CCCCin Mar 2010. I booked my appointment with new petition and I submitted the same at VFS. Indian lady at the counter asked me if I have another petiton. I showed the old one with BBBB and explanied about merger. Then she asked me for proof.Luckily I had the merger documents from my company lawyer but this one was the least expected one.I submitted the docs . She attached those docs to the packet and wrote again "both petitions got merged. docs attached" got the packet and went to counter questions in the order as asked: VO:wht does ur company do ans: Project management and project implementation for telecome companies like xxx, yyyy, and zzz VO: Can you plz talk little bit slow as Im having difficulty in understanding ur accent Ans: Sure. I undestand. VO:do u work at client place? Ans: Yes.I work for xxxx i got the client letter and about to take it out. VO told not required. VO:what project r u working on ? ans: brief desc about project Vo: Whats your highest degree? Ans: Bachelors in xxx VO:what do u do? ans: blah blah blah After I explanied he didn't understand a bit he asked me to explain in plain english as I explanied him in technical terms. As I used term Network he asked me if I'm a Network Administrator..I told no. Again he asked me if I'm a Network Engineer. I was afraid here as i thought he is checking for TAL related stuff but I'm not sure if they really come to TAL. I said No again. VO: What exactly do u do ? Ans: I write Java code. VO: ohh you are a Java Coder..thats what I was expecting from you VO:is ur company a staffing comapny? Ans: Yes we do staffing as well besides Project implementation. VO:do u have any vendor in b/n Ans: No I dont have any vendor until this point he was typing as I was answering.He stopped typing suddenly and asked the below questions on E-E relationship and he started staring at me. VO: who tells u wht to do everyday? ans: i told my supervisor name VO: do you have his name in ur documentation? Ans:i told No and was getting some other docs to show from my file. (this might be employer verification letter or team chart or something) VO: thats ok. VO: ur supervisor is a xxx(client's) employee ? Ans: no.. my supervior is from my company I report to him and he reports to xxx(client) manager. VO: ur visa is issued.you will get ur passport next week. Overall it was a smooth experience and had little bit of luck. Dress well, be confident and carry as much docs as possible. Be prepared to answer Employer-Employee relation questions. From the forums I observed that now a days most of the people are being asked about Employer-Employee relation questions. Hope this helps. I will be happy to answer if you have any questions.
