October 2011 Visa appointment Hyderabad Tracker!!

Recommended Posts

@vidhya 18

My interview did not go as expected. As they say some amount of luck is involved along with lot of preparation. I was prepared with every kind of document they have asked before and I could think of. But luck was not in my favor and to some extent it was expected being on the EVC boat.

The officer I faced was very severe, my interview lasted for about 15 mins.

VO: Whom do you work for? A: XYZ

VO: Who is the client? A: ABC

VO: How many people from your company work at the client site? A: just one, me

VO: Do you have the client letter? A: Gave

He read the whole client letter for 1-3 minutes.

VO: Is there a vendor in between? A: Yes, PQR

VO: How many employees from the Vendor work at your site? A: Don't know, I have nothing to do with the vendor.

VO; Whom do you report to? A: My manager from XYZ

VO: Who assigns you daily tasks? A: Manager from the client site but I report my status to both my manager and client manager?

VO: How do you report to your manager? A: Weekly status report,etc

VO: Who provides you tools for your work? A: My employer provides infrastructure etc the client provides some proprietary software.

VO: Based on your answers and your situation, I can not give you a visa. I will request USCIS to "reaffirm" your case. I am not satisfied that your employer has sufficient control over you.

Me: So is my visa denied?

VO: No, I just have to verify USCIS is aware of the EVC situation blah blah. [My client letter, vendor letter, USCIS letter, LCA, I129 petition everything are in sync and talk about EVC model and client location as work location].

Me: Sir, can you atleast give me a time frame as I own a home there and am responsible for my mortgage. I will need to decide on foreclosing or making some arrangements based on the timeframe.

VO: I will give you a case number and you can track your case with that but I don't know how long it will take.

He gave me a blue form with "Admin Processing" marked on it. He also said they do not need any additional documentation from me.

I have a vague feeling that he is revoking my visa but am not sure as he used the word "reaffirm" and did not give me a denial letter.

Guyz any thoughts?

"Reaffirm" is to reconfirm with USCIS to verify that they are aware with this situation...in this your case will be sent to USCIS for confirmation that they are aware of this EVC situation at the time of Approval.

Wildcats,

What happen to your visa interview which was on October 17,2011.

man_1975... Did you just wake up?

wildcats...it seems like they just want to confirm that USCIS is aware of your EVC situation.

VO: Who assigns you daily tasks? A: Manager from the client site but I report my status to both my manager and client manager?

May be you should have answered that your employer assigns you daily tasks based on client requirement. Just a thought. Anyways, goodluck... Thanks for sharing your experience.
