Notes:
Interview Date : 18 Dec, 2019 at Delhi with my wife (H4) and 2 years daughter. (1) Hand me your petition. Given After looking at this for few seconds (2) Show me your client latter? I said I don't have it. VO asked why and I told that I am sorry but I was not made aware by my organisation if it was required document. He said that whoever told you is wrong and it is required so I won't be able to approve your visa without one. Then VO started asking all the regulation questions like US location, marriage date, US salary and my work profile. He did not ask any question to my wife and handed me blue slip asking to upload client latter and complete petition and returned my passports. It took one month for me to get client latter and uploaded it on 30th Jan. Updates-- -- client verification completed on 13th Feb -- Received mail from usdocs on 20th Feb 10:30 PM to submit passport via VAC courier services -- Collected stamped passports on 2nd March Cheers!!

Notes:
This was my first H-1B stamping. Section 221(g) was likely applied because aerospace engineering (my area of work) is included in the Technology Alert List. It took six weeks from the submission of additional documents to the visa issuance. In comparison, it took three weeks when 221(g) was applied to my F-1 visa seven years ago. The interviewer asked basic questions (educational degrees, job designation, salary) and handed back my passport and a white-color 221(g) sheet. I received an email 6 hours after the interview requesting me to submit (via email) my CV, research details, list of publications, and a letter from my company explaining my job duties. 2019-12-20 OFC Appointment 2019-12-23 Consular Appointment 2019-12-29 Submission of Additional Documents 2020-02-03 Email requesting me to submit passport 2020-02-04 Submission of passport to VAC/VFS 2020-02-11 Receipt of passport and visa
