Recommended Posts

I had an interview on OCT 14. Here is how the interview went on.


1) Got to the US Consulate at 15 before the appointment time.

2) After I got in to the consulate, a lady checked my passport, I 797 and proof of canadian Visa.

3) After that there was security screening and i went to a counter where a lady took my finger prints and kept my DS 160, passport and I 797 in order. and went to the interview Window. Here is how it went.


VO : You work for so and so company ?

Me: Yes


VO: What do you do for the company?

Me: explained my roles and responsibilities


VO:What is your salary ?



VO:Where are you based at ?

Me: I live in X City and work at Y City


VO:You seem to be in your 7th year. Do you have your immigrant petition filed?

Me: Yes I do from the same company.


VO: Your Visa is approved. You will get an email when your is passport is ready to be picked.

I have had my Visa Interview in Ottawa on Oct 14th as well. Had my interview at 9:30. Reached at the embassy at 9:00. They let me in. As soon as you enter, an older lady checks your passport, DS 160 confirmation and I-797. Then you go thru the security check. There are 2 counters where you will provide the above mentioned documents and get ten printed.


There were only two windows open for interview. I had mine with the lady VO.




VO: What company do you work for?

Me: XYZ 


VO: Frist H1-B with the employer

ME: Said no and explained


VO: What is you do?



VO: What are your job responsibilities?

Me: Simple explanation


VO: What is your annual salary?

Me: Said I make XXX


VO: your visa is approved and will get an email when the passport is ready.


Important note is to be prepared , confident and answer to the point. Waiting for my passport.


Good Luck!

Hi reddy, sheela

  As communicated, looks like there are some passport delays due to short of staff and printer difficulties. Will post here for any development. Is there a way to reach you guys directly, for quicker access? 


Also, Please do share if you see any change of status on your end, as it helps with the perspective. Thanks.
