hi all,

     i went for interview today. And vo asked couple of question and answered it right and he asked me to wait that he will consult with some one i waited for more than 11/2 hr and later he gave me blue slip 221g with saying administrative process required before taking the decision and he had all my documents and gave back my passport and gave the case number. and said next time when you come for interview need to bring the passport.

how long this process will take have given all original documents to conuslate?

what is this blue slip 221g means?

what is the ratio of getting visa after this blue slip 221g?

is there a possiblity of getting visa after blue slip?

i am broke after complete preparation i dont know how blue slip came in to picture?

Hi All,

This is the forum which I like to see even after my interview due to lack of time couldnt able to post full experience..Now I got some time..I hope the points I am mentioning will help

Experience with DS-160 Form, it taken sleepless nights to fill ds-160 form which taken 1 week time for me to fill my current duties and all. Actually its a simple one but bec of confusing questions taken so much of time...Take time but fill properly. DONT SUBMIT UNTIL YOU SHOW THE SAME TO YOUR EMPLOYER AND YOUR FRIEND(to cross verfy) TO MAKE SURE 100% Correct.Even though you completed stay 2 days to keep observing so u might find any mistakes...

After submiting I realize my mistake of date in employement is wrong and also duties my employer asked to modify to sync with current project I cancelled the old one and created again..I am panic about my changes but they hardly has a system to track that so no worries...

OFC Interview in hyd:

There is alady in counter her job is to take fingure print and photograph( In my visa I checked she is apathetic photographer I come to know later).....Actually these people job is like aDTP Operator but they feel themselves like some Visa Officer from US...

OK ANY WAY OFC IS just all our indians who are running, thats it no need to give so much of worry for them..You go in T-shirt also works..

Interview in HYD:

When I completed my education I am so desperate like all others that I want to do MS and I lost my F1 Interview couple of times in chennai...

Chennai Embassy is so systematic ,Hyd is like Market..People are shouting moving inside here and just 50 metrs Interview are happening there not sure how embassy officers are managing so smoothly///

ok Interview went smooth ( Questions below thread of mine you can see) and approved H1.Dream came true...

Below thoughts are for Self H1 Aspirants not for Company sponsored please..

OK now what next is my question? Shall I go immediately resigning my job which is paid high in India and go Jobless to USA...Is this what I am dreaming all the days..Where is the so called happiness instead Fear is coming in MInd is it a right thing I am doing by leaving job in India?? Eventhough we get job it will be like 3 to 4 monhts Because we hire for a consultant...keeping green card in mind we dont move from him for say 3-4 years..All these years consutlting job is for 3 to 6 months max in diff place..we have family can we move from Chennai 3 months, Hyd 2 months, Kolkata 4 months, Delhi 2 months?? is it easy ??

Technology switch over..This is a major concern we work on Java now they ask on some cloud computing later SAP later .net is this so easy??

I know people say Nov Dec is adry market dont enter in that time..Then what is the right time? before or after?
How many people who are going on Consultants are happy/ can you please reply on this??I have couple of questions to follow..

Hi All,

My H1B visa is approved last week & i want to apply for H4 visa for my wife & kid (4 months old). I have the following queries regarding H4 visa:
1) Does H4 visa need a separate petition ? i.e separate I-129 & I-797B approved from USCIS.
2) Do i need to fill separate DS-160 forms for my wife & kid.
3) How about VISA fee ?

Anyone who got their H4 visa approved individually / along with the primary H1B applicant please share your inputs.

Thanks in Advance.

Officer said you're applying for H1b visa? I said right.

It took just 5-10 mins including waiting time for entire process.

Visa Intreview- Appointment was at 9:00. Again I went really early but they called us only at 8:30.

They just checked the sticker that was applied on passport during OFC.

My turn came around 10:00.
