H1B and H4 Visa Interview:
The H1B and H4 visa interview were quite simple and friendly. I and my spouse were at the same counter. The only document that was asked was the passport. The information gets poped up my passport number I guess.
I answered the following Questions
- Office Location
Highest degree (We exchanged some humor based on my university )
How long have you been married? He congratulated on our wedding.
My wife answered the following Questions
- Will you do Master’s in the USA?
- Are you working currently and what profile?
- Do you guys have children?
After typing for some time he took our fingerprints and said the visa is approved for both. Also asked us to follow quarantine rules after reaching the USA and shared the worker rights pamphlet. I saw only two counters were open here as well.
