Visa Approved at Vancouver on June 10th

Recommended Posts

First of all, thank you to Murthy forum,
I had my interview on June 10, 2013, we were 4 member started from same Hotel,
Please follow the below link this is more enough for getting visa,
I stayed in YWCA hotel, it has full kitchen at 10th and 6th floors, toast machines too. it is less price but shared bathrooms, you can get private bath room too, it cost little more money, convenient to stores (7eleven store 3 blocks), there is McDonalds for mcddddyyyyyyy lovers, Asian restaurants and other many. We had lunch one day at salam Bombay for one time it is ok.
We found one more good restaurant Chutney villa ( not Indian staff they are from srilanka) ( if u have car you can try this) , it is just like south Indian style…. Dosa, idily you will get here but don’t expect too much…they have something special it is just like thali for veggie it is good … it is ok to have lunch or dinner….. address is 147 east broadway BC, V5T1W1.

overall vancouver is costly place, if you stay in downtown you will enjoy ur stay...

Candidate A, Candidate B, Candidate C and Candidate D (ME)

Candidate A, Done master in USA, works for full time to x Company, he is marking some manager… Candidate B, Business analyst, done master here in MBA and bachelors hotel management … (Token number 8) (Have all document including client letter, recommendation letters, blg blg..)
Candidate C, Business Analyst, done master here in MBA and BBM … (Changed his employer 9 months back) (PIMS was not updated, NO PIMS)

Candidate B and Candidate C both are friends from there masters…

Candidate D, done master here, works for X client, and they do not give end-client letter have all required docs (Vendor letter and email from manager stating that client will not provide a letter), no breaks in pay stubs, since started job.

First level: take out your passport, DS160 confirmation letter and I-797 first page only they will staple all together and next at US Consulate, Security check at main entrance, if you have sealed cover (Example: Sealed Transcripts from university or letter from ur employer) they request you to open it up, the thing is sealed envelopes or covers or packages are not allowed. Phone, hotel key, car key etc … you can deposit at the counter, collect it after interview is done.
Wallet is allowed, jackets are allowed with complete scan, and you can carry your university diploma certificate in big envelops….(I did)

Level 2: you will get token number and finger prints are taken at 3rd floor….They will take your passport, DS160 and I-797 first page only…….if your passport photo size is not clear or something wrong, they will request you to get new photos (don’t worry), small automatic photo booth is there at 3rd floor, keep some change ($10.00 Canadian bills minimum and they do take credit card) with you. Up on calling your token number go at counter 1 and give ur finger prints as directed and you will get ur passport, DS160 confirmation letter and I797 first page….check on your confirmation page now, they write something on confirmation page ohh…. Don’t worry now it is nothing, it is marking to identify that it was reviewed for them, one person got no PIMS…..
Now come back and sit relax, watch the display screen, upon calling your token number go to 20th floor this is the final…security guard will escort you to 20th floor… sit relaxed here … you will see all the counter number 1 to 11….

Final step:
Upon calling your token number go to that counter give your best shot, you will see VO and give whatever he/she counter #4) asks you. Keep smiling all the time be confident and say it clearly and loudly…..give short and sweet answers OR ANSWER to THE POINT, Do not give history or more or unnecessary lengthy information….it mostly take 80 secs to 120 sec to get ur visa this is final step… so it is upto you how well you will perform here…. And all the best to every one….

As I told you we were 4, how my things went see below….
Went 20th floor at 9:44am, my token number is 45 checked on display board it was 38 at counter 6,
Token 38 done interview and got approved (some other visa)
Next token 39 requested to come counter 6

Next token 40 requested to come counter 6
Token 40 done interview got approved (Some other visa)

Next token 42 requested to come counter 6
Token 42 done interview got approved (Some other visa)
Next token 43 requested to come counter 6
