First of all i want to thank immihelp for providing such a nice platform to share the experiences. This was the only website with daily updates on the experiences column.

After going thru the experiences i gained a lot of confidence & experience to face the Visa Interview.
My experience is very short, but i will add the experiences which i heard when i was in the queue.

Interview Details:
Consulate : Hyderabad
OFC : 20th August 2014, 16:30 PM
Interview : 21st August 2014, 8:30 AM

Following are the documents to Carry for OFC interview:
1) Passport
2) DS-160 confirmation page.
3) Appointment confirmation page
4) VISA fee payment receipt

1) Reach OFC atleast 30 mins before the scheduled time, i reached at 3:55 PM and they let me in at 4:05 itself.
2) Dont carry any bags with zips / ladies handbags, mobiles / laptops they wont allow them inside.
3) If you dont have an option but to carry a bag use the locker facility at the entrance of the road, they charge around 100rs. Otherwise there is a security room for Apartments nearby, you can keep it there they charge around 40 - 50rs.

The entire process is smooth & easy which should not take more than 15 - 20 mins.

Following are the documents to carry:

Make sure you complete your breakfast before going for the interview, as sometimes it takes 2 - 3hrs also for the completion and you need decent energy for the interview and waiting.

My petition got selected in lottery for H1b 2015 quota. Sponsor-er applied it in Normal processing.
I got an RFE. Now he says he does not have enough evidences to respond for RFE.

He is giving me an explanation that USCIS has requested for specific details which he cannot obtain from Client.
But when I checked RFE questionnaire there is nothing that he has to get it from Client. It is generic Employee-Employer relationship related question.

What are my options ?

I am planning to report against this employer to DOL / USCIS.

Any suggestions welcome.

If the visa interview is on Friday. Will the passport be available for pick up at Mumbai on Monday?

I appreciate your answers. Thanks.
