Expereince and Learning in L1 & L2 Visa
The process for Dropbox visa applications changed on December 29, 2023. Despite the US Visa schedule website still offering the Dropbox option, be aware that it may not be available anymore. Always confirm current procedures before scheduling your appointment.

Under the new process, I underwent both biometric and face-to-face interviews. I included my wife and son under my profile for scheduling convenience. Navigating the US Visa scheduling site presented challenges, so patience was crucial for a successful outcome.

Our biometric appointment was on Feb 29th, 2023, in Chennai. Despite some hectic moments at the centre, the process was straightforward and took about 3 hours. Ensuring a perfect match of name details between the passport and DS-160 is crucial for smooth processing. Once that's sorted, the biometric process is smooth sailing.

Our face-to-face interview with the counsellor was on March 18th in Hyderabad. It was a busy day at the consulate, and the verification, queueing, and interview took about 3 hours. Remember, the consulate is strict about electronic and metal items, so only bring papers and files.

You don't need a huge stack of files for the face-to-face interview. The counsellor will verify information from your petition file and ask relevant questions. Ensure your answers match the petition details. Key documents like passport, DS-160 confirmation, and any specific additional documents requested should suffice.

Questions Asked by the Counsellor to the main applicant (Me) :
Who is your Visa sponsor
Role name that I am going to take up
Highest Degree details
Which State I am going in for
What is the CTC in US
Explain the Role
Questions Asked by Counsellor to the dependent (My Wife) :
Which City you are going to Live in ?
Show me the Wedding Certificate and Birth Certificate of my Child.
Finally, the ***al words came out that your Visa is approved for all 3 of us and you will receive your passport in a Week’s time, however we received the passport in the Chennai on the 4th day itself.
The timeline for the whole process is Jan 18th I got my petition approved -> Feb 14th appeared for drop box which was denied - > Re-appeared for biometric on Feb 29th - > Visa got approved on March 18th -> Received passport on March 22nd
