PIMS Update

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I have an visa interview on second of October.I spoke to consulate personnel this morning regarding govt shutdown and they confirmed scheduled appointment will not impact at all as of now.

 

I sent an separate email to them yesterday regarding my PIMS update and I got the following response from them today morning.
 

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

Thank you for your email.  We do not verify PIMS information prior to visa interview.

 

Regards

 

 

Is it anything I need to worry about it?

 

Can someone give me some guidance in this regard?

 

Thanks in Advance.

Hi ,

 

Nothing to worry about , it just means that consulate will not try to verify it untill your interview time . I got the same reply .

 

Which consulate are you going ..?

 

 

If possible can you ask the VO or anyone in the consulate regarding the effect of Gov shutdown on the processing times for visa stamping . { As per your result and if possible only }

 

Thanks in Advance

You can't do anything to check/update PIMS. That's not your job to do.

Just send your H1B copy to below email id along with your details like First Name, Last Name, Appointment ID, Date and Time, and location, passport number, H1B receipt number just in case to make sure PIMS has your information.

Hi shalabhgandhi,

 

I am planning to schedule my first time H1B stamping appointment date in Jamaica. I already have my visa appointment in Ottawa on Nov 18th.

I am not able to see/book appointment date in Jamaica until i cancel my current appointment in Canada. Can you please check the available dates in nov and please respond to me so that i can cancel my canada appointment?

 

Thanks in Advance.
