    • should I answer NO, as they are with me in INDIA?
  • Are you traveling as part of a group or organization? 
    • My wife/child they are not attending visa interview. Question is should I enter my family members here?
  • Present Work
    • What should I enter in "Start Date". I'm on extension with current employer. Should I enter initial start date with employer which was 4 years back or should I enter current extension I-797 start date.

In my case I gave my daughter details who is US citizen even though we went all went to visa stamping to Vancouver Canada.

Are you traveling as part of a group or organization? - No. Either you will travel alone or family.

Present Work - I donot know...

You need to enter initial start date when you started working for your employer.

Thanks shekar11 & gopalakrishnach for your response.

 

My actual offer letter start date from employer was april, 2015. By the time H1B approved(change of employer) and the approval notice says Oct, 2015. In this case, should I use my offer letter startdate or approval validatity dates.  I guess its better to use OFFER letter start date.  any suggestion?
