B1 visa approved @Chennai 1st attempt
I want to thank this forum it helped a lot in the preparation of visa interview.

My visa was approved...and with my experience I don't think that year of experience matters much as I am having only 2.3 years of experience. Just your purpose of travel should be clear and you should be prepared with your travel agenda.

The counselor asked for only two documents invitation letter and agenda of the work.

I want to advise that just practice all the possible questions and be ready with all the documents.
All d best guys.

Don't panic while standing in a queue
Be relaxed.
