H1B Renewal at Hyd on Jan 11th.
OFC was on 10th, it was very light process.. be in line just 15mins before.. dont be early..it does not help.
For Hyd, OFC is located in gowrav plaza last cornor Apartment building..OFC is nice & easy.. it will be done in just 15-20 mins..
They will just verify your DS-160, appointment letter and passport. Other docs not necessary.
Its very important to have your Name & other info 100% accurate with your passport and DS-160 (including middle name). At the counter they just verify all the information, and stamp on the DS-160 printout which you provide. Its important to keep this document with you and carry for Visa intw. its a must one.
On the day of visa intw, just be in line just half an hour before.
Mine appointment was 9.30, was there in Q at 9.
Process is very much streamlined, nice & easy. --> enter building->security checkup (dont carry any bags, electronic devices ) ***DONT carry Cellphones,, they dont allow & there will NO stock counter --> pass thru security check up , you will be seated for a while, Person will come to you and check your passport, DS-160, appoitnment, I-797 (for H1 will give white pamphlet to read, its just contain US laws on NON-immigration policy), --> call for counter, stand in a Q in the coutner, on your turn, give your DS-160, appt letter, passport, they will verifiy in the system and then ask you sit in the waiting lobby.--> upon reaching waiting lobby, you will be given a token number -> wait here till your turn --> On your turn, go to the counter, here's visa intw...
Cool, Calm, Confindence are the key..
VO: Greetings exchanged.
VO: Company name
