Successful H1B Stamping on Sept 12th Vancouver

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I have gotten so much information from this forum and would like to share my interview experience .

Model: EVC

Education: USA

Same client since OPT

Interview time: 10:00 a.m

I got there at 6:30 a.m and was the first person at the Consulate.

Since they open at 7:00 a.m , I had to wait till 6:45 a.m.

I took my documents and left everything in the car including cell phone.

By the time I got back there was a chinese family for visitor visa( I guess ) in front of me.

The security people will ask you what contents you have with you.

Then a lady will pull out the list for the day and cross off your name.

Since I was so early than my scheduled time she did remind me about that.

They don't care if you are early as long as the queue is not too long.

She will verify the following things:

1. Passport

2. DS-160 form

3. 1 Passport Picture(Since my DS-160 form picture had a darker background)

4. I-797 form.

Next thing you follow the security guard to the third floor.

Go through the security check point.

As soon as you pass through that remember to go to counter no 1 and submit the following

1. Passport

2. DS-160 form

3. 1 Passport Picture(Since my DS-160 form picture had a darker background)

4. I-797 form.

They will take that and give you the token number.(Mine was no.2)

Once they are done entering your information you will be directed to follow the security person to the 20th floor.

They will call your token number and get your fingerprints.(10 prints)

Then you'll be asked to wait till the visa officer calls you.

Here's the interview part:

The chinese family ahead of me were called to counter 4(Lady Visa officer).

There interview lasted for about 5 minutes and were granted the visa.

Nex was me:

VO: Hello!

Me: Good Morning!

VO: Where's your client location?

Me: Mentioned the location

VO: Since how long have you been on H1?

Me: XXXX

VO: What was your major?

Me: XXX Engineering

VO: Let me see your I-129

Me: Gave it to her.

VO: Let me see your LCA

Me: Gave it to her.

VO: Let me see your Paystub

Me: Gave her two recent paystubs.

VO: After looking at them ..just two

Me:Gave her 5 more paystubs.

VO: Your W2

Me: Gave her 2011 W2.

After typing few things on her computer (about 1 minute later)

VO: Your visa is approved. You will get your passport withing 3-5 business days.Handed me as piece of paper that has details to pick up the passport.

She held on my I-797 and passport.

Me: Thanks and Have a great day.

Today is September 14th and so far no update on the CSC Visa information website.

Hope this helps peopel like me out there.

Good luck to all of you.

Tip: Be confident when you answer.

Will update the forum once I get the passport.

Thanks!

You need to put in your employer address.

Everything is based on your employer address.

Good Luck if your interview is still due!
