Nothing to worry at all. Had my biometrics on Thursday, interview on Friday. Passport was ready for pick up by following Tuesday. However I️ chose courier delivery. So I️ received it by Wednesday. Both the consulate and the delivery address are in the same city though (probably making the delivery process faster)

Op - don't worry much. Majority of bad stories that you might have heard must not be from those who work deloitte, pwc etc.. these companies don't abuse the visa system. I had visa interview 3 times so far, and all were smooth and seem less.

Got approved today :) Chennai consulate. Questions: which company is your petitioner, work location (follow up to these were where are my clients now, who are they ), annual salary, highest degree . That's all

Thanks so much, P1 for remembering to update here. :) Please let us know when your status changes to issued because it’s been taking people a long time.

Thanks, TC1. What questions were you asked? Was it a COS from F1 to H1?

Thanks a ton both of you! :)

Following. I have mine next week at Chennai .

Please tell us how it goes, P1.

TC1 and EY1, how long did it take to get your passport back? Any words of advice for someone going through this for the first time and is really worried?

^Thanks so much! It is so good to hear of people having good experiences with this .

Thanks, SA1 for the reassuring words. Appreciate it. :)

Will keep you posted OP

Thanks, P1. Good luck! 😊

Op when is your interview ?

The 18th.

That is amazing! So glad for you. Do you think it is okay to risk it and go for stamping? I am afraid of being stuck there. I realize I might be a bit paranoid about this - I do not have any red flags on my profile. Graduated from a top ten institute here this year with a masters and this is my new H1B stamping.
