This is my third H1b stamping with the same company (working for the company for more than 7 years).
Been in the USA since 2005, have been on H1b since 2010.
I work as a full time employee with a US based company ( it is NOT a consulting company)
Here is the conversation I had with the Visa Officer(VO)
VO: What company do you work for
VO: Where is it located
VO: What is your designation
VO:What is your salary
Me: xxx,xxx USD
VO: For how long is the company in business
Me: 20 years
VO: Do you have a detailed job description
Me: I explained to her about the project and provided her a word document that had my job responsibilities
VO: Can I see your W2 and payslips
Me:Gave the last 3 years W2 and last 3 months paystubs
VO:I see a discrepency in your salary and the mentioned wage
Me: I was on maternity leave in 2016 and 2018.2017 should be good.
VO: She said she needs to verify something and asked me to wait few minutes, she returned and asked me if I have the company’s tax returns
Me: I said No
VO: She said that’s fine , you can always email us documents, then she asked me if I have previous LCA (not the current LCA)
Me: I said I did not carry previous LCA, I have only the current LCA
VO:Do you have payslips for 2016,2017
Me: I said no since I did not carry the documents
VO: She asked me to wait until one of them call me again, and an Indian lady called me again after 1 hour
She asked me if I have my children’s birth certificate
Me: I said no
VO: She asked me my children’s and my husband’s DOBs and she wrote it down on a piece of paper
She asked me if my husband works in the same company to which I replied no
VO: She asked me to wait again and after close to an hour, the officer gave me the 221g form and asked me to provide all the documents, and told me that she will not keep the passport with her at this point so I can submit all the documents together. She also mentioned that I do not have to come back for another interview.
I am concerned since I am stuck up in India with my kids and this could be a long wait, it has already been close to 4 weeks since we submitted the documents and there is no updates since my interview.
When I searched on the internet, I did not find anyone with similar issue, how long do you think I would have to wait before I get a response from them.
