Successful H1B stamping at Vancouver, Sept 25th


Recommended Posts

Thank you Murthy forum for all the posts and experiences from different people. It gave me an idea of what to expect and what documents to carry. 


Please carry all the documents that are posted in this forum. You never know what the VO might ask you. Better to have them ready, for example resume, utility bills, pictures at your work place. These are not mandatory but from what I have read, some of the VOs do ask you to show these docs. It doesn't hurt to carry them. 


Do no take backpacks to the consulate. There will not be place to keep them. Small items like phones can be saved in the lockers but nor backpacks. 


As long as your documentation is in place, there is nothing to worry. Take deep breath and go in confidently and answer to the point. Be honest. 


Here is how my interview went -

Me – xxx years.

This is how my interview was. The officer in my counter was asking questions in detail. He made me stand and looked into his system for quite some time (2 mins or so). I think he was reading my DS 160.


I hope this helps someone.
