First of all i want to thank this site and other member who are sharing their experiences. This site is great.
I would begin telling the whole thing, so that some of the minor things may also prove helpful.
My interview was scheduled at 10.15 AM, i went to the consulate at 9.30. There were some security police people and some VFS guys outside the building and near the gate. VFS guys ask me to come back at 10.00 AM just 15 min before the interview. As outside temparatures are hot i went to the adjacent bus stand ibn front of the oxford university press and stood for 30 minuts. After that i went and stood again in the queue.
Intially, outside of the building a security personal will check your appointment letter and passport. After that i went inside the building.
Again there will be a security check for checking whether you are carrying any electronic items, mobiles etc. After that you would be send inside another room.
There were many counter and one guy came to ask me the kind of visa, and asked me to stand in one of the counters.
In the queue my turn came and i greeting the officer saying very good morning sir. He too said good morning sir. He took my BEP folder that i was carrying and checked all the documents. Don't forget to carry 3 original copies of i129 and 1797 forms and original petition. He checked everything and asked me give 10 fingers finger prints. After that he stapiled some of the documents and returned me the documents and said me go to the other next building.
I went inside the next building, to my surpise there was big queue. There was a guy standing asked me to pay 22,000 Rs DD in counter number 12. I paid the same. Next i stood in the long queue. In the queue all H1,F1,L1 etc all were standing.
There were around 8 counters and all foreign guys were interviewing. I stood for around 1 hour in the queue. Suddenly one guy came and asked all L1 candidates to go to counter 7, to my surprise now i was standing 2nd. My tension started now.
My turn came.
Me: Hi sir, very good morning.
Vo: Good morning sir.
Vo: Took my folder and started checking in the
Vo: How long you are working in this company.
Me: 3 years
Vo: What are your specialized skills.
Me: I said on what projects i'm working. i just
said the whole thing in 3 sentenses.
Vo: Asked me give my right hand middle finger
By this time he started stamping and signing the documents and said the golden words, "your visa is issued sir", and gave back stamped i129 documents. To this i was very happy and greeted him back saying have a nice day sir.
