Successful H1B stamping in chennai - aug 23 - EVC model

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I would like to share my stamping experience.

My case: Entered US in L1 visa and then changed my status to H1 last year oct. So it is a RENEWAL stamping. Currently a small consulting firm (wtih 10 employees) holds my H1 visa.

I am working at client location who does not give client letter. I just had some proofs like my profile pages in the client's site, email from HR saying as per the ploicy they don't provide any client letter etc.

I talked to lawyer and was told I need to have 2010 and 2011 paystubs. I had all the supporting documents with me.

VO: Howlong have you been in the US.

me : Around 2.5 yrs.

VO : Who is your employer

me : answered

VO : Where are you working in the US?

me : answered

VO : What was you status previously?

me : I was in L1 visa for some time and then I switched to H1B last year Nov.

VO : Is there anyone between your employer and the client (I thought I am screwed up here)

me : yes. I have to go through the client's preferred vendor and my employer has contract with the preferred vendor.

VO : whats your annual salary?

me : around xxx

VO : Can I see your last 3 months paystubs?

me : Handed over all my 2011 paystubs bunch.

VO : Your visa is approved and it will be mailed to you in a week.

Thank you guys.. I saw many people leaving the embassy happily. In a day the consulate sees 100's of people trying to get stamping. I believe some of them have issues in getting stamped. So don't loose your hopes. Try to collect and organize all the documents that you could produce. Thats what we can do from ourside though the result is not in our hands.

Renewals are pretty much less complicated when compared to the first time stampings...but that is a good thing that u shared..very few ppl who have their successful stampings come back and share their interview experiences ..it usually boosts the confidence of other ppl who are planning to go for stamping ..all we see here is a bunch of queries and unsuccessful stampings..and we get scared..ur post is like a fresh breeze to us man..good luck with ur future endeavors ..

once again thanks for sharing..
