Employer tax returns and financial statements

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm going for H1b visa stamping to canada soon.

1. My employer is big company and they said its not possible to give copies of any employer tax returns or wage reports or financial statements to me.

Will this be a problem? If the Visa officer asks about them what should be my reply?

2. I'm on EVC model, Is it mandatory to take PO, work-order or SOW documents between vendor and my employer? or just the vendor letter should be fine?

please advice.

Thanks in advance!

its better to take all docs we dont know what Vo will ask. you need PO and all contracts between all layers . I got 221g for these docs. you will also need your employer tax reports and wage reports.

Hi Kumaratluri,

Can i know the exact reason for your 221? For missing PO and Workorders documents OR Employer tax returns and financial documents

finally, my vendor said he will give PO and workorder.

But still I have issue with employer tax returns. They said they are confidential, and they wont give.

Do you know any cases that got 221g for employer tax reyurns and financial statements?

both the docs are necessary - employer tax docs as well as the PO docs.

employer should give you the docs in a sealed envelope...

why do you act like you know EVERYTHING here..just stop commenting unless you know the truth. Sealed envelops are NEVER allowed into consulate..Did you swim across the ocean from South to enter US, or did you ever goto American Consulate ?

the thing is employer say this stuff...like no to open those docs by urself....anyways, dont get serious....

u can take either sealed or unsealed...whatever, the security at the consulate wouldnt allow any sealed envelopes inside for security

it doesnt matter whether sealed or unsealed....before entry to consulate..security people would remove the seal and check what's inside

I attended my interview at the Toronto Consulate. I carried a sealed envelope from my employer containing company confidential tax returns, wage reports (of my colleagues) and other information. Security did not remove the seal on the envelope nor did they ask me if i was carrying any "sealed" envelopes.

We pass through a metal detector and they scan us & whatever we are carrying before we are allowed insde. I believe the scanners can detect the insides of "sealed" envelopes. It IS safe to assume that we can carry 'paper' into the embassy, regardless of the envelope being sealed or open or even torn :)

Rather than sound off/rant in public, ask yourself "Is my reply contributing to the topic creator's question?"

@nsreddy: You are better off carrying those documents to VO. If the VO has any doubts/questions over your company (big/small) *may* ask for your company statements. My employer (75+ employees) did provide me with tax returns, wage statements, etc... in a sealed envelope. I attended the interview and the VO did not ask for those documents. I was issued a 221g and subsequently too, i was not asked those documents by the embassy. I got my visa approved 3 weeks later and am in the US now. The envelope is still lying around "sealed" but better safe than sorry.

I was stopped at Hyd consulate security post for carrying sealed University transcripts. They didnt allow me to open the envelope in the consulate premises, and was told to leave the building to open the envelope. This happened to me twice, first time in Chennai and recent time in Hyderabad.

and thanks for your

Hope everyone (funny guy Omshiv) behaves like this.

And from that, you "conclude" that this is the rule for everybody and for every consulate and for all times???

Things change. Don't assume that your situation is the same for everybody.

something special about people from Hyd then...

Maybe it is "special" for people from North too ... more so since they tend to illegaly "buy" GC :)

From NEw Delihi Embassy website --

http://newdelhi.usembassy.gov/applyingmain/security-restrictions.html

"The following items are not allowed in the Embassy during your interview: mobile phones, electronic personal digital assistants, cameras, audio or video recording devices, lap top computers, portable music players, travel bags, back packs, brief cases, suit cases, cosmetics (including but not limited to spray perfume/cologne and talcum/baby powder), bottles of any kind, food items, and any sealed envelopes or packages."

The fact is, sealed envelop is not allowed in ALL US consulates in India .... Looks like not so in Canada though. (http://canada.usembassy.gov/consulates/security.html)

Not really bothered to reply back, but just to get the record straight I took the sealed envelope for my H1 Interview at the Mumbai consulate several yrs back. VO didn't ask for it and neither the security asked me to open it...lol

Did you check the regulations ? From the same Mumbai consulate -- http://mumbai.usconsulate.gov/security-restrictions.html

"The following items are not allowed in the Consulate during your interview:

Other items: Electronic personal digital assistants, cameras, audio or video recording devices, bluetooth devices, lap top computers, memory cards, portable music players, travel bags, zip folders, cloth bags, back packs, brief cases, suit cases, cosmetics (including but not limited to spray perfume/cologne and talcum/baby powder), food items, cigarette lighters or tobacco products, and any sealed envelopes or packages. "

It is your words against what is published in Consulate site ... and one cannot go and argue that Sealed envelops should be allowed because someone who illegaly got a Green Card says so ! A tad difficult argument , you know :)

And I forgot to mention --- The requirement for Employer documents is rather recent but years back too employees of real shady employers might be requiring those :)
