while on my opt, I had worked for chipotle and once I got a job offer I had quit and worked for a company. So, when i bring documents for h1b stamping in nepal, I need to show my 1040 form and w2 form. On my 1040 form, it shows the toal amount of earning from both my current job+chipotle. Since I will have to show w2 of both my current job and chipotle, will i get into trouble?

I worked on chipotle when i was in f1 status while on OPT but my 1040 form has the total earning from there too. Help please. Is it required I show my 1040 and w2 form at all?

This is just a heads up... please be prepared to be stuck for at least 2 to 3 weeks. I was there stuck for almost a month.  For interview dates, you can request them for earlier dates with a solid business case. They usually schedule your interview for earlier dates.

I had requested one and they did actually reschedule a week early. see their email below ;

Thank you for contacting the U.S. Embassy in regards to changing your visa interview date. You may come on Monday, December 20th at 9:00 am. Please bring a copy of this email with you to the interview to present to the guards at U.S. Embassy entrance.

Please note: Please keep in mind that there is no guarantee of issuance by a certain date, or at all. You should never pay for travel arrangements (e.g., airfare, hotels) without having a visa in your possession. The U.S. Embassy accepts no responsibility if you do so. We are able to issue most approved visas within two business days of interview; however, we are unable to guarantee the issuance of a U.S. visa before a fixed travel date

I will keep you posted with the status. To get the  dates for the interview please go to the US emabassy site and fill out the DS-160 form. On completion of the form you get confirmation email and you can send that confirmation to anybody here in nepal. Any one from nepal can get the interview date after providing the confirmation page and fee to the Nabil Bank. You dont have to be here to get the date.

Hope this will help. But I would not recommend you to come here for visa stamping if you dont have to. Coz waiting for the visa will give you very hard time and it is frastruating. Especially in Dashain they will remain close and may take extra time.

I think you'll still need your passport while making appointment at Nabil.

If you scroll down on this page

How to schedule your visa interview    

Nabil Bank is responsible for collecting the visa application fee and scheduling visa interviews for the U.S. Embassy. Please do not call the Embassy's consular section for any appointment information. Applicants should bring with them to Nabil Bank the following items:     

  • A valid passport
  • A clear printout of the completed online visa application’s
       confirmation page (with bar code),
  • The equivalent of $140 (for B1/B2, C, D, F, I, J, and M visas) or $150 (for H, L, O, P, Q and R visas) in Nepalese rupees to pay the visa application fee.

Please note: the application fee is a non-refundable administrative processing fee. It is collected whether or not a visa is issued.

If you get visa right away, then they will return ur pp next day. But if you get 221g then that might take some time. See if you can get PIMS verified now in Nepal. You can find some discussion on PIMS verfication below

RELAX.  you are going to have fun back home don't let these american issues bother you.
you know what i did. i had just one paystub from oct 1-oct 15. and h1b petition and h1b approval. they asked me few question.
and i got the visa other day.
don't listen to these guys. do your way. be preapred for the questions they'll ask. all you need the h1b approval. all other things are unnecessary because they are not the one who issues the h1b. do be shaky when they ask question just answer them.
all of them who stuck in nepal, i am sure they messed up the interview. 
your h1b legit... that's enogh ground to get visa. all other things are out of stupid mind.

enjoy ride home.

by the way i got my visa from one of those dhoti consultant. so relax and enjoy momo.

Please do not listen to anybody regarding making the appointment for visa interview. I got the interview date before I flew to Nepal and appleared on interview on the second day in Nepal. If you wanna confirm please find the Nabil Bank Maharajgunj branch phone no and ask them. Those who are saying we can not make appointment ...please do not share the information, if you are not sure about it.

@Sirus_me: Consular asked me very few questioned but spend most of the time doing something on his system and may be checking with his co-worker too(coz he asked me to hold for a min and went back for few mins)

Below are the few question I remember from the interview:

Q: Who do you work for?
A: company name.
Q: What do you do?
A: I am XXXXXX(degination)
Q:No what do you do?
A: I do XXXXX (programming)
Q: Do you work in company location?
A: No I work for client location
Q: Who do you have contract with?
A: I had to go through the vendor I had contract with vendor
Q: Who do you report if you need time off/sick leave?(vendor or company)
A; My company
Q: Have you ever taken vacation before?
A: Yes twice
Q: When?
A: mentioned months
Q: Who is your supervisor?
A: Supervisor name from the empoyer.
Q: Who is your client supervisor?
A: Mentioned the name

After completion of the interview, he mentioned that since this is the unusual case they need to put this case on hold and when I asked what made this case unusual he said since there care two man power company(my employer and vendor) which is unusual for the h1b. No slips were issued and no docs were asked so far. 

All the best for those who are stuck here in kathmandu just like me and coming over for the visa stamping. For those who is coming here, regardless the chances of getting visa, get prepared for enough stress you will have while waiting for the response.

Came to know that consular tried contacting my company and left the VM. They will call back the consular. Does anyone have this experience? Does anyone know what will they talk about?  chances of getting approval?  Is it possitive or negative thing?
