Successful Stamping at Nogales on Feb 12th 2007
Hi All!

Thanks to this forum & all the friends who given the information and helped me a lot for successful stamping. I am writing here about my Nogales trip for H1-7th year extension.
Went to Tucson Intl' airpot at 10.30 and got a rental car at 11 Then reached at Nogales (USA) 12.10PM then get into best western hotel (previously Called and booked the room). Hotel manager is Indian and his name is Manu and he is very helpful guy. Taken rest for 3 hours and went out and checked for next day morning Car parking at border. Next day morning got up at 5 and vacant the room at 6 and started journey to Nogales (Mexico). Parked the car (McDonalds opposite road left side parking lot) for $4 and walked for 2 min. to border and crossed the border from one gate And taken one taxi and went to consulate (paid US$8). (Need banamex receipt which I got it before I went to Nogales). Went to consulate at 6.45 and there is nearly 70 to 75 people ahead of me. I went with my wife and 11 months old baby. I requested security guard for me to go inside first because its very cold outside and I am with my baby.. They said ok and given me first number. At consulate:
1) One lady came and checked my appointment letter, DS-156, 157 & 158(for h1 and h4). (Don’t take any cell phone, remote keys or any electronics) at 7.30AM
2) Inside they checked us and sent to next counter.
3) The same lady who checked appointment letter that lady checked passports, banamex receipt and given token and asked us to sit in front of finger prints room.
4) Finger print officer called us and taken finger prints and photo and checked all the US address and asked few questions at 7.50AM.
5) Then we went and sit in front of Interview cabins at 8AM
6) Interviewer called our number at 8.10AM.
VO: Hi!
Me: Hello Maam, Good Morning
(My wife is holding baby)
VO: Hi baby how are you.
Baby: laughed and shouted very loudly.
VO: she asked my wife to take the baby to play area (inside consulate)
VO: Which company you are working for?
Me: I told company name
VO: For how long?
Me: answered
VO: What your company will do?
Me: bla bla bla....
VO: Right now for which company you are working on project?
Me: answered
Now she checked my ds-158 and in that I dint write all parents and my brother sister’s names.. So she asked me and my wife to write those names and come back. I have completed and went again.. She checked all the information and said your visa has been approved and given one blue slip to collect the passport.(In blue slip its written to collect the passport next day but it will ready on same day.. for some people they will get next day.. they might check background process for delay) came out at 8.40AM.
Went to wallmart and nogalus mall and spend rest of hours. I will suggest to go burger king.. really cheap and good.
That’s all.. I collected passport at 3.10 and went to border by taxi And got the New I-94 at 4.10PM (at border the I-94 issuing officer is very slow) came back to US-Tucson at 5.30 and got the flight on time.
If you need any more information send a message I am happy to assist.
