Thanks to everyone who posted their experiences here, they really helped me to prepare well for my interview and now its my turn to share my experience.

Besides the other regular formalities I will directly come to the main phase.

I was called in Window and stood in Queue, attender took my passport and handed over to VO. I think VO is a American Born Muslim because his accent is American and had Muslim type beard

VO: Signalled me to come forward
Me: Good Morning Officer

VO: Good Morning. Your right hand fingers on scanner Mr.My Name
Me: Sure

VO: Who is your employer
Me: Answered

VO: Client
Me: Answered

VO: Do you have client Letter
Me: Yes Sir, I pushed it to window but he did not look

and finally I heard the Golden Words "I am approving your visa" that I have been waiting for long time

As everybody say, Stay Cool and Confident I know its easier said than done. To avoid the tension look at around the people you can definitely find some kids and watch them so you can forget your tension, try not to think about the interview all the time.

In front of me B1 Visa approved and before calling me VO asked the outside attender to call somebody with name XXXX who attended the interview some time back and he said he was not able to approve VISA right now(I have no idea the reason though).

I also looked at other window while I was waiting, VO said to the candidate that their employer provided some fake docs and also employer has some problems and he did not approve his VISA

So Please concentrate on the docs you employer gave to you; If you have good set of docs you will get more confidence.

Believe in God. All the best.

I am planning to go for Visa interview in Oct 2014 in Hyderabad and when I read through the previous posts, it seems "Project Description document" is necessary (around 80 page document) for those working in consulting firms (EVC model).

Can anyone give information if this has to be from the employer or the client? And how important is it to have this document?

Hi All,

I have attended H1b interview in chennai, it's thru. I am happy for that. Now turn to my wife H4 visa.

My employer told me to attend the interview single, now he is asking me to schedule for my wife h4. He asking us to carry my passport all pages ans marriage certificate, marriage album, i129, I 797.

I have got visa, but still I am in India, is there any chance of asking too many questions to my wife?

Do we need to carry any other documents other than mentioned above. Please help us?

Thanks in advance.

I have attended Consular interview on 26th September 2014 at London consulate. During the interview I have submitted all my documents(I-797B,LCA, I-129,client letter etc..) along with my passport.
At the end of the interview VO said your visa will be processed in 2 weeks and not returned me any documents which I submitted along with passports.
Do they verify all the documents again before approving my VISA?
