When to submit docs for H1B stamping


Recommended Posts


I am planning to get my visa stamped at Hyderabad consulate. I wanted to know if I have to provide any documents at VFS office prior to appointment? If so, how many days prior to the appointment?


Should I just take my documents with me at the time of appointment?

I would appreciate if anyone who has been to the Hyderabad consulate or any other consulate recently can provide me this information.

Thanks in Advance
