I am a husband of an H1-B Visa holder in the US. I was working in the US as a software consultant. I came to India in OCT' 11' for my H1-B Visa stamping. I was issued a 221G blue slip. After 7 months chennai consulate replied with a green slip asking me for client letter and client-vendor-employer contracts. But, the project was over while I was stuck here.
Now, I am going for my H4 interview at the Chennai consulate on Monday, 23rd July. I have a few questions in my mind that I would really appreciate if you guys can answer:
1. Will the VO ask me about the previously received 221g? If so, how should I answer the question?
2. Will the VO ask me what I have been doing from past 9 months in India? If so, how should I answer the question? FYI - I have not been working in India for all these months
3. Will the VO ask me what are my plans in the near future after I go to the US? If so, how should I answer the question?
4. Our wedding album is huge (over 1000 photos digitally printed on the album). It weighs over 12 kgs. Should I carry the entire album? FYI - I printed 40 important photos out of the album and want to carry it along with a DVD of the all the photos. Will this be allowed?
Lastly, please share your knowledge and experience about an Husband's H4 Visa Interview. Especially, if there is anyone who was in my situation. All replies will be greatly appreciated.
