I have been reading this portal for the last two or three months. Posted only two or three articles here. Anyway, got my CP done yesterday at New Delhi. Mine is ACP (E2) case. I belong to southern part of India. Sent my file to New Delhi (just because I studied in northern part of India for four years) instead of filing I485 and let my H-1 visa expire before returning to India in October 2000. I wasn't married when I submitted my Packet 3 forms. I took my wife along for the visa. I didn't have to meet even an american consular officer. Just submitted the forms in the morning and collect the visa in the evening. The forms they ask for are -
Passport, OF 230 Part I&II, IRS 9003, Medical reports, one copy of birth and marriage certificate and Employment letter.
That's all, nothing else. They didn't even check my originals. Not even wedding album (given that I didn't submit the paperwork for my wife before).
Good Luck for all the guys going through US Embassy at New Delhi.
