  1. I would like to share my recent experience of H1B visa stamping at Matamoros, Mexico. Hopefully, this thread can be helpful for others who need it. Details ===== Date of Stamping: December 8th, 2015 US VISA Requested: H1B Location: Matamoros, Mexico Appointment time: 9 am Status chain: H1B ext Consular Trip Service used: Salvador services (Extremely helpful) Documents I brought with me ====================== 1. Passport (old and recent) 2. Form DS 156 confirmation 3. Degree Certificate 4. I-140 Copy 5. Pay stubs 6. H1B filing documents 7. I-797 (Approval Notice) 8. Employment Verification Letter / Offer Letter 9. W-2's 10. Bank Statements Tip === 1. Remember all your documentation! 2. Come to either Brownsville, TX or Harlingen, TX (cities near the border) a day before your finger print appointment. 3. If you fly, I suggest don't buy return ticket immediately. You may need to stay overnight at Matamoros since the VISA processing for Third Country can take up to 24 hours. 4. During the interview, only answers the questions they ask. Do not explain too much as they might get confused and will ask you more and more questions. Experience ======== Visa stamping in Matamoros is very simple and easy. you can use Salvador Service to help you with the transportation, it is all up to you. I flew to Brownsville, TX, TX on Dec 6th, 2015 and Mr. Salvador came to pick me up. Since I would like to be in the Consulate early the next day. The next day, Dec 7th , Salvador picked me up at 8:30 am at the hotel for finger printing . We are done with ASC center finger prints in 15 minutes and back to hotel. We went straight to the US Consulate at Matamoros. The next day, Dec 8th , Salvador picked me up at 7:30 am at the hotel. We went straight to the US Consulate. Just after I entered the consulate, the front desk checked my Passport, I-129 and I-797. Interviewer: Good morning Me: Good morning. Interviewer: What do you do for living? Me: XXXXX Interviewer: Where are you located? Me: XXXXX Interviewer: For what company are you going to be working? Me: ABC company Interviewer: Show me your i-140 copy Me: XXXXX Interviewer: Show me your degree certificate? Me: XXXXX Interviewer: Congratulations your visa is approved Me: Thank you. Have a nice day. I have n't received my passport on the same day. It took 3 days for them to return my passport . Usually people will get it on the same day or next day. In my case some information is missing that's the reason it took long. In case of delay be patient and visit consulate daily. Got my Passport on 12/11 and reached border at 04:00 pm I walked to the CBP office (located exactly at the border), and paid 30 cents to cross the border. I gave them my passport and waited for 1 hour!!! In the CBP office: 1. My fingerprints recorded 2. They ask few questions like: - Where are you gonna be staying in the US - Who is you employer? 3. Paid $6.00 for I-94 then I crossed back to US!!! That is it... It wasn't as bad as I expected. If anyone has any questions regarding my experience, you are more than welcome to ask and I will be glad to answer.

Your finger prints will be taken. 4. You will be called for the interview. My Visa Officer was a cool guy, though he asked me number of question it was a pleasant interview. VO: How are you doing? Me: Great! How are you. VO: Where are you working? Me: I am working at Client location thru my Employer. VO: Do you have a ny vendor in between, if so letter please? Me: Yes, gave my vendor letter, which I did not give at the token counter, as he asked me only Employer and client letters. VO: What is your client, I mean what does it do? Me: Explained about my client , what is it actually. VO: What is your role? Me: briefly decribed my job duties and resposibilities. VO: Are you on system Admin side?
