Hi,

I had my visa interview for 1st time H1 stamping in Calgary on 02/12. Was asked a lot of questions regarding specific work details. Was more technical than I had expected. I answered everything. Interview lasted for about 15mins.

At the end VO asked for client/vendor/employer letters, resume, bank statements, work sample and handed a yellow slip. Case is still in admin processing. No response yet.
