sandy5 Posted November 2, 2015 Report Share Posted November 2, 2015 Hello All, I attended first H1B visa stamping today in Vancouver. Here is how it went. Appointment time : 7:15 AM. Allowed to consulate around 7:00 AM. Verified DS160, I797, Passport and Passport Photo. Took my phone and kept it in a locker. Headed for the security and then before giving Finger prints, Verified PIMS update. For me, they pasted a slip saying, NO PIMS UPDATE FOUND on my passport. After that, I gave my finger prints and then asked to go to 20th floor for interview. I waited for around 20 mins, to get my chance. I went to 3rd counter ( So called Chinku ) :-) Me : Very Good Morning Officer. VO : Good Morning. VO : Give me your Passport VO: You did your masters in US.?In which stream.? ME: Answered VO: Before H1B , Are you in OPT.? Me: Yes Officer. VO: DO you have your OPT documents.? ME: Handed my OPT cards. VO: When did you get your H1B.? Me: Answered. VO: I'm approving your H1 Visa, It may take a few days more than usual because there is an administrative processing on our end, to get your passport back and handed loomis contact details green paper to me. Me: DO you need any documents from me,.? And how many days does that processing take.? VO: No need and I don't know. Does anybody faced this kind of situation Vancouver.? And How many days does it normally take to get passport back in these kind of situations.? Any comments are appreciated. Thank you. Link to comment
