H1B Visa: Step-by-Step Guide

It turned out that I got an approval for H1B petition in June and I’m about to visit Vietnam for winter holiday.

I need to prepare all the required documents for the visa interview as the timing gives me less than a month to be ready.

Step 1: Get all documents ready

  1. Passport photograph
  2. H1B visa application form DS-160
  3. Receipt of application fee
  4. Documents for H petition
    1. I-797 A,B or C
    2. I-129, Petition for Nonimmigrant worker
    3. H Classification Supplement to Form I-129
    4. H-1B Data Collection and Filing Fee Exemption Supplement
    5. Labor Condition Application for H-1B & H-1B1 Non immigrants
    6. H1B Visa Petition letter provided by your employer
  5. Employment Verification letter
  6. Pay stubs atleast last 3 months
  7. Monthly bank statements (last 3 months), Bank of America provides Immigration Letter.
  8. Visa Interview Fees slips

Step 2: Book an interview at the US consulate in HCM city. Do not hesitate to book early since last time I didn’t get the desired time and was spending half a day waiting in line.

Step 3: Bring all required documents and prepare for the interview.
