spvisa Posted July 25, 2014 Report Share Posted July 25, 2014 I finished one year on H4 visa. I wanted to do my next year on F1 visa to be eligible for OPT. So, I went for F1 visa stamping. I had my appointment on Friday (July 18th) of this month in the morning. I was there at Consulate officer 30 mins before my appointment. The whole process was over in 1.5 hrs. Most of the applicants seemed like Canadian residents who wanted to visit USA. There were few TCNs. About my interview: The consular officer asked me very few questions. These were some of them, Which school? Where do you live? Who is sponsoring you? Were you working for <Indian Company> earlier? Finally, took my passport, I-20 and told my visa is approved. I was also told that I would receive my passport within 3 business days. I then came back home and checked my passport tracking status every 15 mins until Tuesday night (July 22nd) . On Wednesday early morning, I got an email that my passport is ready for pickup. I booked m flight and packed my bags. Took train to loomis centre and got my passport, I-20. I then walked to airport from there. I was not asked many questions at immigration check (happens in Vancouver itself). Let me know if you all have any questions. I can also give more details on how to get to loomis centre (Richmond) from Vancouver. Link to comment
