F1 to H1B visa experience Mumbai June 2019
Hello Everyone,

This site helped me a lot during my H1B visa process. So I am posting my experience here. I hope it helps.

This is my visa experience.

OFC appointment - 02/07
Visa interview - 03/07

Visa officer was nice and asked pretty basic questions. It was more of objective type.

Me - Hello sir Good Morning. How are you doing?
VO - Good Morning. I am good. Can I have your passport?
Me - passed passport.
VO - Asked for my I797.
Me - passed.
VO - So you work for XXX company?
Me - Yes sir.
VO - So what is your highest education qualification?
Me - Masters in XXX from xxx university.
VO - So you were on F1 for x years?
Me - Yes sir.
VO - Which university did you go to?
Me - xxx university.
VO - Do you work for xxx company as full time employee or work at client location?
Me - Sir I am full time employee at xxx company.
VO - Congratulations your visa is approved. You will get your passport within 3-5 business days. Handed over know your rights
and passport delivery instructions.
Me - Thanked and left.

Received my passport in 2 days. 05/06

VO didnt even asked about my duties, company or anything more complicated. I believe ppl transferring from
F1 to H1B and working full time has benefit. Over all my process was smooth.

Prepare for everything. If possible bring water bottle. You will have to wait for at least for 1.5 to 2
hours before you get to the window.

All the best.

H4- Administrative processing at Delhi Consulate
I had H4 Visa stamping on 14 & 15th of May at Delhi Consulate, my interview went well as I had answered all the asked questions, at the end of interview VO retained my PASSPORT,MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE(ORIGINAL), MARRIAGE PHOTO ALBUM(COURT MARRIAGE PHOTOS) & MY EMPLOYMENT LETTERS OF ALL MY PRESENT AND PAST EMPLOYERS.
and told me we will inform you via SMS, I didn't receive any 221G slip, however my Visa status is showing "Administrative processing" Since the day of interview.
its been 3 weeks and status didn't change yet.
is there anybody else as well who has ended up with similar kind of situation? or have any idea what should we do in this case.

H1B transfer
I was in India on vacation for a month and I was on leave without pay.
My employer did not generate the paystub, hence.
For my H1B transfer, they’re asking for last two months of paystub and I don’t have the May 31 payslip. Can I show approved vacation letter for the transfer? Would that be an issue?
