Successful Visa Interview @ Hyderabad

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am currently working as a Software developer consultant for the same client for past 4 years ( EVC Model ). This is my H-1B extension and did my Masters.

I had my previous visa stamping with same employer and end client in 2017.

So, I was eligible for interview waiver program and submitted documents using dropbox.

Case updates :

17th June : Application Dropped in person at VFS     

18th June : Application Received

19th June: Administrative Processing

20th June: Administrative Processing    

21st June :  Received 221g email from the consulate. I was asked to schedule an appointment for an follow up in person interview . My passports were with the embassy.

The first available appointment was on July 8 at 9:00 am and scheduled it.

Had to reschedule my return flight 😞 due to this unforeseen incident .

This morning I reached embassy at 8:45 and I was allowed to enter inside after 9 am

Note: Candidates in similar boat , please do carry your other forms of ID for verification ex: Aadhar card ( Couple of folks who had 221g did not have identification on them and were not allowed inside )

After security check, I was asked to go directly to counter #6 to collect my passports and then go to counter #7 for fingerprints.

I was handed over a token for counter #11 and I did not had to wait in line with rest of the applicants.

I immediately reached the counter and there were couple of people before me ( one aspirant was F-1 and other was L-1 ). Sadly both of them were denied and now came my turn. ( Little nervous )

Here's my interview:

Officer: Who is your current employer?
Me: Answered
 
Officer: When did you join the petitioner?
Me: Answered
 
Officer: What is your current compensation?
Me: Answered as per LCA
 
Officer: What is your highest degree of education and where did you go to school?
Me: MS in US
 
Officer: What is your job title?
Me: Answered as per LCA
 
Officer: What are your responsibilities?
Me: Answered
 
Officer: Do you have an end client?
Me: Yes
 
Officer: Do you have a client letter? 
Me: Yes. Shared it with her
 
Officer: Do you have any vendors? how many layers?
Me: 1
 
Officer: Share the vendor letter
Me: I provided the letter
 
Officer: Can you share your employment letter with me?
Me: Shared the letter
 
Officer: What is your salary again?
Me: Answered
 
Officer: How big is your team at client base?
Me: Answered
 
Officer: Who is your favorite colleague at client and why?
Me: Answered

Officer: What is the nature of client business?
Me: Answered

Officer: Do you use services of your client?
Me: Answered

Officer: How long have you been working for this client?
Me: Answered

Officer: Reviewed all the client, vendor and employment letter for a while and said " Your VISA is APPROVED"
 
The interview lasted for about 3-4 minutes and I was out of the consulate by 9:30 am.
 
Can anyone share the timeline to receive the passport?
 
Thanks to the forum as always!

Thanks!
