Please post your H1-B stamping expereince in August at Hyderabd Consulate


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'm planning to go for H1-B stamping in Aug or Sep. Really appreciate if anyone can share their experiences. Given the chances of US economy going into double dip (recession), I'm perplexed to go for stamping.

Any experience will really help people planning for H1-B stamping in the next couple of weeks.

If you can avoid hyd..I suggest better do it as there are a number of cases pending in hyd consulate than any other consulate. Also a number of students go for F1 during this time and if by any chance you are will take time to process...

I am struck with 221g since may first week and no response from consulate yet....

I have heard a number of blanket L1\H1 visas from IBM and deloitte have been rejected on a bulk basis in hyd...

Thanks for your response on HYD consulate stamping. Hope they approve your case ASAP.


I believe full time employees do face problem but prone to less 221g's when compared to consultants. Even I'm a full time employee for a fortune 500 firm but still perplexed to go to stamping based on HYD consulate response time.

Any full time employees for H1-B stamping in HYD?

All, please keep this thread alive with HYD consulate experience.

It doesn't matter which consulate you go to(Chennai or Hyd or Delhi). If your petitioner is under the radar you will most likely get a 221g. This will be true for almost all desi consulting companies because their whole operating model is under scrutiny. USCIS E-E memo insists that your employer supervises your day-to-day actvities and controls your work at the work place. Tell me any body shopping company that does this.

Even if you have all proper paperwork, there might have been another employee from your petitioner who had his visa rejected earlier and that will impact you.

You can consider yourself relatively safe only if you work for a reputed employer with good financial standing and perfect paperwork without any kind of fraudulent background model.
