The questioner which you received was given to me by VO immediately after the interview which was generic to personal details, past travel, previous visas, education, and resume in .txt format. Can you confirm if this is what you were asked for?

Hi everyone..

I have been thru this 221(g) security clearance back in 2008. I attended interview at Chennai consulate for my first H-B stamping in early Dec 2008 and got my visa stamped in late March 2009...almost 4 months. I am full time employee with MS degree in US and now I have to get my H-1B renewal stamp this Nov or Dec.

Please advise which consulate I should attend for minimize the chances of getting 221(g) again. I spoke with my attorney and he sais "most probably it will happen again, since it happend first time". I know it doesn't matter which consulate I attend, I will probably need to face this again. But atleast some suggestions willl help me pick a consulate... Appreciate for any advise.

My personal advice - don't travel unless you really required.

Doesn't matter which embassy you pick.

Thanks, but I need to visit India for my brother wedding. I am leaning towards Chennai since Hyd deosn't process the visa stamping for renewal and treat all of them as new visa stamps.

My interview was straight forward and VO didn't asked for any documents except for letter to USCIS. It was returned back after verifying the client name. Few questions related to my masters degree were asked, location of my employer, what do they do and where is the client located and verification of client on letter to USCIS.

Invitation letter is generic document which may be applicable for Visit Visas.In Case of H1b I believe it refers to 797 and for F1 it refers to the I20.

I spoke to my employer's attorney before submitting the invitation letter.

They provided a generic template which says I am employee of so and so company.

The letter shows my client name, salary, job responsibility etc and request to US embassy to grant the applicant H1B visa.
